St. Barts day trip - Any boat rental ideas?

Jump to last reply

So, about 22 years ago, my husband and I stopped at St. Bart's on a Norwegian Cruise. It was our absolute highlight (and a break from the smoke-filled ship!) We rented a little motor boat and went around the island. It didn't cost much. We could throw off the little anchor and swim 100 yards off shore, avoiding the naked zoo. It was perfect, except, of course, for the 3 minutes when the engine wouldn't start on the north side and we were being blown into the rocks and had no life vests, water or radio and thought, for the first time in my life, I could really die.

A couple of decades later, we are older and wiser and our NCL days are over and we are going to St. Martin with our 3 kids for a couple weeks this July. We plan to take a day trip to St. Barts. Something tells me the little marina guy won't be there with a little boat with the little anchor for $100. Any suggestions? I love that island but my prude American children will freak at the nudity.

Thanks in advance!
