Riding the Ferries


St. Martin is a good base for travelers to take small day trips to neighboring islands such as Anguilla, Saba, and St. Barts. Frequent ferry services provide transportation to and from these islands for reasonable fares, allowing travelers to take in as much of the Caribbean as possible during their stay.

Many international visitors wanting to explore the islands of Anguilla, Saba, and St. Barth's, may choose to fly into the major hub of Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Maarten and make their way by a consistent ferry service to the neighboring islands rather than pay larger fees to make a connecting flight.

Several different companies provide services to these islands, and a passport and valid driver's license is required for those boarding. The benefit of vacationing on a dual-nation island is that when one side of the island doesn't have something the suit your needs, the other side just might. There are ferry services leaving for neighboring islands from both the Dutch and French side of the island on a regular basis.
