With a marina right near this town, Sainte Marie is a great destination for yachters who sail here from out of the country. There is plenty of opportunity to get in a little sailing during your trip, however, even if you don't have the skills to captain a boat yourself.
Those who don't know how to sail on their own, or perhaps just want to relax while they let someone else do the work, will find hiring a local sailor to work best for them. Full day, half day, and even overnight trips are available, but will cost $300(USD) or more.
If you're just wanting to spend some time on the water, without the complications and cost of sailing on your own you can take an excursion. Check out the chart below to get contact information for area day sailing companies.
