Travel between St. Lucia and St. Martin

Does anyone know of cheap flights or boats that travel between St. Lucia and St. Martin?
My fiance are looking to honeymoon on both islands this summer and need advise on travelling between islands.
Thanks in advance.

There aren't any boats catering to tourists (much less honeymooners!)
While there are no direct flights you can connect via Antigua on Caribbean Star or Liat. This will be relatively cheap, in the overall scheme of things, but will eat up the better part of a day. There are many islands that combine more easily into one vacation than St Lucia and St Martin do. But if this is what you really want to do, I hope it works well and you have a great time.

Which islands would you suggest that do combine easily? I have also been thinking along these lines for my honeymoon. Sorry for hijacking your thread Etien!

Islands that would combine to make a great 2-island vacation include:
Antigua (great beaches) + St Lucia (lush scenery)

Saba (friendly people, great diving) + St Barth (great beaches, French atmosphere)

St Martin (great food and beaches) + Nevis (quiet, laid back atmosphere).

And there are many others. The key is choosing islands that are easy to get to from one other (And so look first at Antigua and St Martin, which are hubs for local airlines) and that offer some degree of contrast (French vs. English, beach vs. rainforest, etc.) so that you will really feel as if you're someplace different.

Some other combinations are:

St. Martin/Anguilla
St. Martin/St. Barth's
St. Maarten/Saba
St. Kitts/Nevis

Just to name a few.

Statia hit on all the islands around St. Maarten
St. Lucia you could go to Martinique very easily or maybe even Barbados.
