So worth the price

This ferry provides quick service to Barth's. It's pretty no nonsense but you are still in a small bit of paradise. So quick and convenient, you'll be glad you made a great day... read more

Did a day trip to St. Barts. $80 RT Takes like 45 minutes. You can set inside or out. Pretty quick and efficient. The staff was real nice. They gave out water and gingerale. They saw that my sis wasn't feeling to well they situated her on a part of the boat where she'd be better off... I highly recommend... More

My wife and I booked a trip to ST Barth with great bay express we found out after the the water is very choppy from locals that have taken the ferry and it wouldn't be safe for my pregnant wife. I went back to the office and talked to them very politely if we could please have at least half... More

i inquired about the ferry via email. They asked for my credit card number and said they need me to authorize the purchase in the email. I inquired about the departure marina and we never heard back! I emailed great bay to cancel my request. Never got a response. Today in the mail, I received my credit card statement and... More

I have to write this review. So many people post the poor experience they have from taking the ferry from St Maarten to St Barth. I can tell you it is a beautiful ride and the views were awesome as you come into the port of both St Maarten and St Barth... so why do people get sick. They don't... More

It was really rough the day we went, but yet felt totally safe. It was quite the experience and the view coming in to St. Barthemy are the most amazing you will ever experience.

I've travelled the world, taken boats all over - in calm and rough seas, never had a problem with sea sickness... until this ferry! I threw up from the start to the finish, going to St. Barths. The staff check on you, handing out bags, ice and rub mint oil on you... just to be clear I wasn't the only... More

Take your dramamine! it's 40 minutes there and very choppy in the morning. The 5:45pm return was much calmer. Complimentary soft drinks, nice staff, saw a "business class lounge" area, but were never offered that option or upgrade, so can't tell you how much it was.

Make sure to take motion sickness pills. This is a bumpy ride but tranquil being on the ocean. The crew were very nice and accomodating and helpled those who became ill. St. Barths is an over rated island in my opinion and very expensive but I am glad I went and got it "out of my system".
