Ferry St Martin to St Barts?

We are going to St Martin in 3 weeks and we are planning to take a day trip to St Barts. I am wondering whether or not to fly or take a ferry. Has anyone done either? Any comments?

The ferry ride over can be rough. If you are at all sensitive to sea sickness take something before you leave. The ride back is much smoother.

Look into the large Catamarans. We did this a few years back and had a blast. These are large boats holding about 30 people or so, all outdoors, with an open bar the whole way to and from. In St. Barts they will offer you snorkel gear to use at the beaches as well. Agree with the previous posting though, about seasickness. Have fun!

I agree with the big cat poster. I was there a while ago and we took one over to St Barts. I get violently seasick regularly - but did not have any problems on the big cat. I admit the seas weren't particularly rough that day - but I wouldn't go on a boat trip on really rough seas anyway. The trip was as nice as the island.....

Fly. Time is short so maximize it. Rent a jeep and tour the island. Go to La Saline beach. Have a beer and "Cheeseberger in Paradise" at Le Select in Gustavia.

Take a catamaran. It's lots of fun to spend time on the water. Plus St. Barts isn't that large -- it won't take you that long to tour around the island.

I'd pass on "Le Select". Even as a Jimmy Buffett fan, I wasn't impressed with the food. Nice location, though.
