We used Bernard's Tours, which was fabulous. For us, it was a great way to see both sides of the island and get some beach time.

Maho beach. Time it right and wide body jets land on you it seems.

We did Bernard's as well. We did the shopping trip as opposed to the beach trip. That gave us two hours in Marigot. We ate lunch at Sarafina's. The pastries were delicious.

We also liked Sunset Grill. Since that was the last stop, the tour guide said we could stay how ever long it took for a big plane to come in. It was neat.

How far in advance do you have to make a reservation with Benard's?

For those who have done Bernard's, would it be interesting enough for four kids (ages 7-12)? It seems like you make a lot of stops, so I'm assuming they wouldn't get bored....

Random Wind

We went on the Random Wind (look them up on tripadvisor) back in July. We had a great sail. There were about 15 people on the boat. We stopped twice and enjoyed both. The trip is geared toward snorkeling and swimming, which we enjoyed. The food and drink was good and plentiful. We would not hesitate to book again.
