Taking the ferry is a unique and charming way to navigate Anguilla's waterways and visit neighboring islands. Planning a day trip to nearby St. Martin is no problem at all with the frequent ferry services from Anguilla. This little tropical island is a great place to explore the wonders of the Caribbean.

Riding the Ferries

Vacationers don't need to make reservations to catch a ride on any of the island's fantastic ferries. All you have to do to take the ferry from Anguilla to Sint Maarten is put your name and passport number on the manifest at the pier as soon as you get there. You'll pay a departure tax of $5 and a security fee of $28(USD) if you are a first time visitor, on top of the fee for riding aboard the ferry, and then you're all set. You can also charter ferry boats for your own personal inter-island excursions. For more information on chartered sailing, visit our guide to Anguilla Sailing.
