How Do You Get To St Barts?

luxury vacation st maarten st martin saba caribbean luxury yacht charter

"Dear SailAway – I love reading the blogs about the big yachts and all of the celebrities that hang out in St Barts during the holidays. I will be in St Martin for a hotel-based vacation, and while I can’t afford a luxury yacht charter, I would love to see St Barts. What’s the best way to get there?


Editor’s note: Thanks, Terry. You have several options:

There are daily flights from Princess Juliana International Airport (SXM) located in St Maarten (Netherlands, Antilles). It’s a short 10-12 minute flight to St Barth’s Gustave III Airport, located on the island’s north coast. The descent is a real nail biter for the faint-hearted, necessitating a pass through a narrow break in a hilltop and a landing on the 280 meter runway that ends on St Jean beach.
Call +590 590 276541 for flight info.

If you would rather avoid the short flight, several interisland high-speed ferry services operate regularly between St Maarten and St Bart’s. It’s a 45 minute ride.

Voyager Ferry (daily travel between St Martin, St Barts and Saba)
+590 590 275410

Master Ski Pilou (private water taxi transfer from St Barth’s to St Maarten Juliana Airport and Anguilla)
+590 590 279 179

As to not being able to afford a yacht charter, Terry, you might be surprised. The megayachts are certainly very expensive, but many travelers prefer smaller, more intimate crewed catamaran charters for their yachting vacations.

A family or group of 8 passengers can rent a crewed catamaran for under $15000/wk, all inclusive of meals, alcohol, crew, a LOTS of onboard watersports toys like bananas, wakeboards, snorkel gear, etc.
