After a Port St. Maarten, Philipsburg, or Oyster Pond pickup, the tour will begin from Dock Maarten. Depending on the weather, and the size and level of fitness of the group, the following sites will be visited while driving around entire island of St. Maarten. 

Geological History: St. Maarten consists primarily of sand, limestone, and layered rock. Visit one of the two sites where layered rock is clearly visible. 

Forts: St. Maarten has the remains of three forts, of which at least one will be visited. The forts are situated on top of hills and will take a 15-minute uphill walk to reach them. Each fort offers a great view of one of the two capitals.

Salt Pond: The first inhabitants of St. Maarten, the Arawak, called the island Soualiga, meaning Land of Salt. The naturally producing salt ponds of St. Maarten were also the reason for the Dutch to return after they had an unplanned stop over in 1624. Learn what Great Salt Pond looked like in its hey day and notice the difference in the appearance today.

Plantation: For centuries, St. Maarten’s economy was based on salt production and agriculture during the plantation era. Of the more than 100 plantations in the colonial peak times, only two — Golden Rock and Industry — have been conserved in one big park called the Emilio Wilson Estate. In the park, remains of the plantation house and ruins of the surrounding farm buildings can be found. Visit this park to give the hardships of those times a moment of thought as well as to enjoy the lovely scenery and marvelous trees.

Additionally during this island tour, discover more historical highlights such as the areas where the Amerindians once lived and the border monument celebrating the peaceful sharing between the Dutch and the French of 'the Friendly Island' St. Maarten. There will also be a break for iced tea, iced coffee, and homemade cake with a Caribbean twist. After the tour, return to the starting point.

This tour is not suited for people who have problems walking on uneven and sloping terrain. Please be aware there will be at least one 15-minute walk uphill to visit a fort.
