http://www.loteriefarm.com/ The Fly Zone was much more strenuous than I expected. I am 41 year old and fairly physically fit. I'm 5'7" and it was tough on some parts to reach the next step. DH and I both thought it would be more "zipping" and less climbing. I probably wouldn't do it again, but it was a fun once in a lifetime thing. The whole course took about 1 1/2 hours.Price is $40 per person. Be sure and visit the Hidden Forest Cafe while here for delicious meal. still craving the tempura banana! Lunch served noon to 3; dinner 6 to 9pm Tuesday through Saturday, Sunday noon to 6pm; Sail on a tall ship and be a pirate for a day: We found it very much overhyped; I wouldn’t call it a pirate ship. It was a quiet afternoon, but far from exciting. The staff were very pleasant, but there wasnt a lot of conversation or excitement from Captain Rob. The food was good....it took the better part of the day so we were disappointed we didnt have time to do anything else afterwards. Towards the end of the sailing, we were anxious to get off the boat. www.lordsheffield.com We did Lord Sheffield Adventure-- it was GREAT! They take you out on a 2 mast brigadoon (?) drive around the island and stop near a beach so you can jump out an swim/snorkel. They have noodles and rafts as well as snorkeling equipment. They let you climb up the mast and jump off into the water -- my husband did that, he said it was difficult to climb up but fun! They have open bar from the minute you leave, serve nice bread and cheese then BBQ ribs and chicken then a nice fruit plate. It was $60 per adult and $48 per child. I would highly recommend it. You can walk to it from the pier and then can walk to the shops either before or after. The captain and the crew were awesome! I would do it again in a minute!! Sail with : http://www.sailstmaarten.com/ or http://www.randomwind.com/ Sail the lagoon in your own boat with : http://www.lagoonsailboatrental.com/ Take the Golden Eagle tour and sail on a champagne filled million dollar catamaran or a rum punch pontoon party boat with: http://www.sailingsxm.com/ Sail with Captain Morgan on a 65 foot schooner. The Captain Morgan sailboat is an exceptional experience and a great way to explore the island from the pristine waters around St. Maarten and St. Martin. Captain Serge takes private parties (up to 16 guests) and individual bookers on some scheduled days on a luxurious sailing & sightseeing tour along the beautiful coastlines of Dutch & French St Maarten / St Martin. You even can snorkel and explore the magnificent sea life beneath the crystal clear waters. White sandy beaches invite for a swim in the warm waters of the Caribbean. This fun cruises with Captain Morgan include a fabulous service, tasty snacks, and a delicious lunch & dessert. The complimentary bar is open throughout the cruise. http://www.captainmorgan-daycharters.com/index.html We joined Capt Morgan’s on the day sail in June '05. They meet their guests at the same location as Random Wind --near Simpson Bay --and travel the same route. Sail from Simpson Bay around to Creole Rock by Grand Case on the French side, stop for snorkeling awhile at Creole Rock, then about a 30 minute stop at the secluded Happy Bay beach. For return trip, you go back the way youu came. (not an full sail around the island as you would not enjoy coming around the island onto the rougher Atlantic side)
You will meet them early morning and return about 5pm. Oddly enough, I most fretted about what kind of shoes to wear for sailing as I had not been on a sailboat before --- when they pick you up, they place everyone's shoes in a plastic tub and return them to you back at the dock --- no shoes worn onboard. Light snacks, then lunch, drinks of varying variety all provided. We did have a beautiful day for sailing -- light breeze and slightly overcast. There is an area that is shaded if the sun gets to be too much. No more than 16 - 18 people which did not seem like too many on a ship of this size.
The Random Wind should be similar from all I have heard. It is the more recognized name as they were "there first". Their site: http://www.randomwind.com/ High speed ferry tours of St Barth’s and Saba: http://www.voyager-st-barths.com/us/index.php
