Beyond its many resorts, duty-free shopping spots, and beach bars, Philipsburg also provides the perfect jumping-off point for a slew of outdoor adventures. From snorkeling excursions and Jet Ski sessions to all-terrain-vehicle tours, these activities offer the perfect slice of Caribbean paradise. Here’s what to do on your next trip to Philipsburg.

Snorkeling and Scuba Trips
See what life is like below the waves on a snorkeling tour of the turquoise seas that surround Sint Maarten. Snorkeling tours whisk you away to uninhabited islands, where you can spot tropical fish, sea turtles, and other marine life. For both beginner and certified divers, scuba tours offer an even more immersive way to discover the underwater scenery.

Boat Tours
Whatever your speed, Philipsburg has a range of boat tours designed to acquaint you with the region’s impeccable scenery. Travel aboard a sailboat at sunset—complete with Champagne—for a relaxing time on the waves, or book a private charter to customize your own itinerary. You can also hop aboard a speedboat to visit day-trip destinations like unspoiled Anguilla, or even take a spin behind the wheel on a self-driving-boat tour.

Kayaking Excursions
Combine your sightseeing with a gentle workout when you sign up for a kayaking tour from Philipsburg. Get a new perspective on sites like Pelican Rocks, Kim Shaw Beach, and Simpson Bay when you paddle by, and pause for a dip to cool off.

Water Sports

If adrenaline-pumping adventure is your preferred form of outdoor activity, then Philipsburg offers plenty of lively excursions to get your pulse racing. In addition to diving tours, hoverboard outings let you fly above the waves, while Jet Ski trips make it easy to speed along the water.

Jeep and ATV Tours

Not all of Philipsburg’s outdoor activities take place on the water. Discover another side of Sint Maarten on a self-led Jeep tour of the island; with a map in hand, you’ll discover hidden corners well off the tourist trail. ATV tours, meanwhile, let you go everywhere from mountain trails to beaches.
