If you've got some extra time, we suggest adding an additional night or two at this beachfront hotel to fully chill out before the group adventure begins.
Hotel: Simpson Bay Resort, Marina & Spa, Sint Maarten
We'll take the morning to explore the Simpson Bay beach area, check out the iconic spot where airplanes land barely above the heads of beachgoers, sip some local rum, then we'll jump on board our home for the coming week - the impressive 156-foot sailing vessel that'll take us to some of the most gorgeous corners of the Caribbean.
We'll set sail with capitan, crew, and our fun-loving band of pirates, ready for our own Pirates of the Caribbean adventure.
Days 3 to 7
For 7 days we'll cruise into some of the most beautiful coves, ports, and beaches that the Caribbean has to offer. The exact itinerary will depend on current sea conditions, the captain's advice, and of course our own desires as the ship is ours for the full week.
We'll share jokes and stories on the expansive deck under the stars, jump overboard into the impossibly-blue waters, check out beach bars and unique ports, and soak up the heat and sunshine of these beautiful February days.
Expect to spend the week barefoot in the sunshine, packing just your swimsuits, some comfortable shoes for exploring, and maybe a nice outfit if you're feeling like having a land-based dinner at some point.
Onboard our ship, we've got a large social deck and indoor dining saloon on the upper deck, then a lower deck full of cabins - each above the water with a porthole and private bathroom.
On our 8th and final day we'll sail back into Sint Maarten as we wind down the fun and say our goodbyes to our crew and fellow Detours gay sailors.
Feel free to add on additional nights in Sint Maarten, or book your flight out of SXM airport with a departure time any time after 1:00pm this day.
You'll be returning home full of stories after 8 days of fun in the sun of the Caribbean.
Simpson Bay Resort, Marina & Spa
Located directly on a beautiful white-sand beach, with the waves at our doorstep, our adventure begins in paradise in Simpson Bay, just minutes from the SXM airport.
Tropical gardens, extensive pool areas, and of course the white sand awaits us at the Simpson Bay resort for one night before we set sail on board our ship for the coming week.
The Simpson Bay Resort, Marina & Spa is set in the shores of Simpson Bay Beach. It offers 6 outdoor swimming pools, sun terrace, spa, casino and the on-site water sport facility Aqua Mania Adventures.
Her name means "sail". Once aboard our 156-foot home at sea, we’ll be taken back to a time when tall ships ruled the waves. Everything about her will light your imagination and inspire a sense of wanderlust.
Newly refitted, the ship's snug cabins all feature portholes and private bathrooms. Her teak decks are spacious and inviting with plenty of room to spread out.
It's the kind of adventure that fulfills your pirate soul in 21st-century comfort!
