My wife and I booked with Twin Island Excursions as transportation not as an actual tour. We had a cruise on the RCCL “Allure of the Seas” arriving in St. Maarten on January 24, 2013. We arranged for transportation from the ship to the Boardwalk/Beach area. This is a 5 minute ride. We stayed their two hours then went to the Princess Juliana Airport at the Sunset Beach Bar. This is a special airport where the planes fly over a small stretch of beach, a small two lane road and then the airport fence and runway. The planes fly right over you when they land. When they take off and you can get next to the fence or on the beach and feel the jet blast. See you tube for more about the airport.
We shopped and had fun for two hours at the Boardwalk area. Oliver then picked us up at the same meeting place and then we went to the airport and arrived in about 30 minutes. Oliver was a great driver and explained about the Island while going to and from the airport. After spending three hours at the airport beach area, Oliver then took us back to the ship in about 30 minutes, all at a reasonable price. They did an excellent job with the van transportation. They advised us when traffic may be bad on the Island and how much time to allow to get back to the ship on time. Whatever custom island adventure you have in mind, I am sure that they can make it happen. Email or call them, they were very helpful in advance of our trip. Twin Island did an exceptional job from start to finish. I can’t recommend these guys enough!
Keep in mind when booking with Twin Island that they go by local time. This is one hour ahead of ship or Eastern Standard Time (I think most ships stay on Eastern Time). So booking a 9:30am time for departure from the port means 8:30am ship time! Check with them to make sure about booking times.
