Flying into St. Maarten:
Fly into Princess Juliana International Airport on the Dutch side of the island. Our yacht is located at Porto Cupecoy Marina, just a few moments away from the airport. Taxi service is available from the airport to our home base. You will check-in at the boat which is indicated by the Festiva Sailing Vacations flags and markings.
For our guest choosing to come in early or stay later for a few days, we can recommend staying at The Atrium Beach Resort and Spa. By booking through Festiva Sailing vacations you will receive a preferred rate. The Resort is only a 10-minute taxi ride from our base at Porto Cupecoy Marina.
Our Base Location:
Porto Cupecoy Marina is where our base is located on the Dutch side of St. Maarten which is approximately fifteen minutes from the airport. The meeting time to board the yacht is at 5 pm on Saturday. You will have dinner aboard the yacht at the base that evening and the yacht will depart on Sunday morning. Because of crew time needed for provisioning and yacht preparation, no one will be able to board prior to 5 pm on Saturday.
U.S. citizens must have a valid passport. Other citizens should check entry requirements with their home country's consulate. A $20 tax is imposed upon departure from the Princess Juliana Airport.
All guests must bring proof of "onward accommodations" (flight or hotel confirmation for their plans directly after the cruise is over). This information will be required if the yacht gets stopped by immigration.
