Board comfortable transportation for a short, scenic drive along the coast to board the Explorer custom party boat. This double-decker vessel features open-air and protected decks, entertainment and amenities, including rum punch and ice-cold beers or soft drinks.
Enjoy first-class views of the waterway and coastline along Simpson Bay. You'll pass luxury villas, multi-million-dollar yachts and breathtaking views as your captain offers commentary on all you see.
The capital city, Marigot, has a French joie de vivre all its own. Colonial houses, sidewalk cafés, bistros, pastry shops and quaint stores are reminiscent of a French market town. There is an upscale shopping area with luxury boutiques at the foot of Fort St Louis, and near the harbor, you will find the Marina Port la Royale, which has clothing from the latest European designers, as well as fine jewelry. Because the city is only four streets wide, it is easy to get around. Shopping is tax- and duty-free.
With shopping bags in hand, board comfortable land transportation for a narrated drive across the island. Along the way, you will pass the quaint fishing village of Grand Case, known as the gourmet capital of the Caribbean. Take in sweeping vistas of Orient Bay and the authentic atmosphere of the French Quarter before arriving back at the ship.
