Full description
Feel your adrenalin soar as you focus your camera on jumbo jets just feet above your head, coming in to land at the Princess Juliana International Airport. Experience five hours at the beach with some extreme plane spotting! Start out with a drive from the St. Maarten cruise port along the Great Salt Pond. Take in aerial views of the island from Cole Bay Hill. See the nearby islands of Saba, St. Eustatius, and Anguilla as well. When you arrive at Maho Beach, the Sunset Beach Bar & Grill has the flight arrivals listed on a surfboard so you don’t miss a landing. A live feed of the communication between the airport control tower and the arriving aircraft is aired as well.

We were the only ones picked up by a minibus. The driver tells us something about St. Martin and the Antilles in English. Once there, a pick-up time was agreed upon and the driver was there on time. We read and then drop off in the city center and he explained the way back to the ship.

Great, the descent description on your side is not so good. At the sign St. Maarten you have to keep right to the parking lot to the other estates very fell people and buses when it goes back there no longer knows which bus is yours.

Very nice trip. We visited 2 beaches and had enough time. There were free drinks on the bus. Again any time.
