    Historical philipsburg by bicycle and beach.
    We did the Historical Philipsburg by bicycle and beach tour! Our tour guides were so nice, funny, and we learned some history about the island. We really enjoyed the tour and we got to have a rum punch by the beach before heading back to the boat. Perk! The drink is included in the tour!! We would highly recommend this tour.

    Hike early as it is hot 🥵 Great Coastal Views
    I went on a scenic Hike with Alex today and had a blast. Its a hike along the coast, 1h one way , 1hr back the same way. Beautiful views over the ocean and great explanations from Alex. 🥾🥾🥾 I learned a lot about the island. The path itself is not too exhausting, long stretches of walking straight ahead, a little up and a little down. 🥾🥾🥾 The hiking itself wasnt too strenuous - however, the heat was. There is no shaded area anywhere. Bring enough water, a hat and sunscreen. The heat was craaaaazy. Good thing was, we went out early in the morning and returned before the midday hear. 🤩Thanks Alex, it was fantastic. 🤩

    Recommend this E-bike tour of the most beautiful sights on St Maarten
    Really enjoyed the Gem of the Island e-bike tour. First time on an e-bike. Bikes were comfortable and very impressed by the assistance up and down the rolling hills of the island. Pablo was a great guide, kept us safe on the roads, and took us to beautiful viewpoints. Learned quite a bit of history on our stops as well! Great day, would highly recommend!

    A MUST DO! for families w/kids or adult groups alike
    This was well organized and a lot of family fun! A great way to learn some history and culture, interact with locals and solve some puzzles. Physical and mental challenges were great for young and old! Highly suggest this as an alternative to the traditional excursions. And you still have time to enjoy the beach and shops after. Tri-sport employees really made it fun!

    Great E-bike experience
    We had a great experience with this e-bike rental company. The bikes were delivered to our cruise port. He informed us how to use the e-bikes and was very helpful especially when we had to climb the hills. I would definitely use this company again. Fantastic service.

    Amazing Race - Phillipsburg!
    We have literally watched the Amazing Race every season since it debuted in the very early 2000s, so when I saw this tour, I knew we had to try it out! We had a fantastic time and would recommend this to anyone! The clues were all well thought-out and appropriately challenging, while the tour guides were all alot of fun. We felt like we got to see parts of P’burg that we would have never stumbled upon on our own, and we particularly loved how the locals jumped in to help. Would 100% recommend this adventure!

    Adventure Race - don’t miss out, book this!
    What a fun shore excursion, Adventure Race, in St Martin! So much fun with new friends that we were paired with. Had lots of laughs completing the challenges and answering trivia like questions. Staff were great to interact with. A day to remember!

    E-bike tour!
    We took an e-bike tour and had Jan as our guide. We had a great time and he was a wonderful tour guide. He told us all about the island and made several stops along the way. We appreciated the e-bikes very much for all the hills and they were in good working condition. I believe it was about a 22 mile ride. Well worth the cost and was definitely a highlight of our trip. Jan, thank you for such a great time!

    Fantastic excursion
    We did the tour of Philipsburg thru a NCL excursion. Fantastic bikes and leader. Felt safe biking even in busy areas. Just the right amount of shaded stops for narration breaks. Loved ending up at the beach. Definitely would use this company again this time for a longer ride.

    Fantastic eBike experience in St. Maarten
    Before our cruise to the Southern Caribbean islands, I reached out to Tri-Sport directly on their website to book the Two Countries, One Bike Tour. All communication via email was prompt and thorough. We knew exactly where to meet after departing the cruise ship in St. Maarten's cruise terminal. Our guide for the day, Pablo, gave us a helpful review of the eBikes. If you are debating on whether to spend the little bit extra for the eBike, don't think about it, just do it! You will thank yourself later, as there are some decent size hills that have to be climbed and having the battery assist option makes the trip doable for anyone who can ride a bike and has just a little bit of stamina. The tour allowed us to see interesting places and beautiful sights on both the Dutch and French sides of the island. The pacing and stops that were included were well thought out and the smoothie/drink stop was very refreshing. Before coming to the island, my friends and I had hoped to be able to stop by Maho Beach and see the airplanes buzz the beach as they land. We were very excited to learn that this is included in the tour. We saw two large airplanes come in for a landing and one taking off within a 15 minute time period. Lastly, my group and I can't say enough wonderful things about Pablo. Not only was he a great bike coach and tour guide, he is also a wonderful ambassador for the island. He shared lots of interesting stories and information about St. Maarten, how it was established, important sights to see and left us all wanting to come back for a longer visit. If you enjoy biking and have some time in St. Maarten, I would highly recommend booking with Tri-Sport. You won't be disappointed!

    A great way to enjoy the island on a bike!
    The tour was very enjoyable. If you’re an avid biker or enjoy riding bikes in general, this is the tour for you. The E-Bikes were well worth the small investment vs. standard bikes. There are some decent hills that a good biker could conquer, but it’s vacation! Get the E-Bike! Plus the sooner you get the the halfway stop, the more time to relax at the beach. Just know you will ride with traffic occasionally (on the right like in the US). So you will want to be comfortable riding with vehicles at times. Our tour guide, Benson was fantastic and very knowledgeable! Tour took about 3hrs for us. Great day overall.

Had an excellent combo kayak/snorkel trip yesterday that left from Kim Sha beach in Simpson Bay Area of Sint Maarten.
Tour had 6 people total on three 2-person kayaks and had the feel of a private excursion.
Our excellent guide Joe gave a brief tutorial on use of the kayaks and snorkel equipment and we were off for a 30 minute paddle that included a turtle sighting to another beach where we snorkeled from.
The snorkeling was amazing with great visibility where we viewed many types of coral and different fish observed with bonus of a quick swim by from a pair of rays. Also saw some cool ship wreckage both recent and far older including an huge anchor and a ships wheel.
Joe was an excellent guide during the snorkel pointing out and explaining the many cool things we were seeing. With probably over an hour of snorkel time we had plenty of time in the water.
Paddle back was a leisurely 45 minutes going by some of the mega yachts anchored in the bay with trip ending on 2nd floor of beach bar for a complementary drink.
We have been to Sint Maarten many times over the years and this tour was one of the best we have been on.

Keyani and Kasey were excellent guides. Very knowledgeable and personable. We had a lot of fun. This wasn't our first choice for a shore excursion. Our original choice was cancelled through the cruise line. BUT we sure are glad that it was cancelled and we had the opportunity to do this. Don't be afraid to give this a try. We always shied away from doing this because it is labeled as "strenuous." My husband and I kayak about twice a year and we are 60 years of age. Our group consisted of beginners to experienced and it worked out very well. I would definitely do this again. I took off one star only because I wish we had more time to spend at the beach and/or bar as part of excursion through the cruise line.

Pablo is a great tour guide, very knowledgeable about the history, geography and ecology of the island. It was really amazing, paddling through the bay on the way to the lagoon, seeing the huge yachts and learning something about them and their impact on the economy of the island. Pablo knows a lot about the marine ecology of the area, and as we paddled through the lagoon, he told us about the different types of mangroves and their function in a healthy ecosystem, and showed us some native jellies, a sea cucumber and other mangrove wildlife. He is actively involved in projects to protect St. Maarten's environment and to educate young people in ecological awareness.

This kayaking adventure was rocky at first being that I had 0 experience, but it was definitely worth it. I rented a duo kayak from Carlos. We were able to venture off on our own all the way into the lagoon and the around back to the Kim Sha Beach. The waters here are shallow and calm, barely any waves. It was a cool to see all the boats up front and enjoy the scenery. Be prepared to wear your sunscreen.
