St Martin / St Maarten

The tiny French-Dutch island of Saint-Martin, covering just 88km², is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea and is renowned for its friendly welcome! The international airport is in the Dutch half of the island known as Sint Maarten. Ports like Marigot are on the French side to the North.

Much more than a beach lovers paradise, the island of St Martin with natural, cultural and amazingly friendly locals. Thanks to its climate and untouched natural heritage, the island offers unparrelleled year-round watersports and outdoor activity.

St Martin has its own unique identity, making it the perfect sunshine getaway to start or end a voyage. You will also find that the people of Saint Martin – fiercely proud of their “Friendly Island”, reputation – are very helpful.

Joining Blue Clipper in 2019 – the boat will plan to be anchored in Marigot Bay however its exact location will be open to change due to the port authorities.
