SXM Deals Adds More Excursions in St. Maarten to Keep Up With Demand
SXM Deals, a major tour operator on St. Maarten with more than 43 activities and tours plans to extend its inventory of excursions to keep up with the upcoming busy tourism season.
St. Maarten is well known for its beautiful beaches, famous airport and busy nightlife but what has made it a top ten Caribbean destination is its ever growing list of activities and excursions that SXM Deals adds each year.
On any given day in St. Maarten, there can be more than 8 cruise ships and over 20 inbound international flights bringing more than 30 000 tourists in one day on an island of only 33 square miles. The demand for activities is growing more and more every year and so it remains vital that local businesses keep up with the growth in tourism to satisfy island visitors.
Since 2011, SXM Deals has added an average of 15 St. Maarten excursions per year to keep up with demand and provide a variety of tours.
Over the last year, the demand for activities has been so high that visitors that wished to book excursions at the last minute or that did not pre-book their excursion at least 2 weeks in advance were unable to make reservations and join a tour during their vacation in St. Maarten.
To overcome this issue, SXM Deals has doubled efforts and added 10 excursions in St. Maarten over the last two months with another 5 excursions planned to appear in the coming 6 weeks.
In light of the increased travel to St. Maarten, this season promises to be busier than first time island-goers, residents, and avid travelers have seen in the recent past. Princess Juliana International Airport has seen an increase in total flights booked in the first half of 2013 already, and CEO and owner of SXM Deals, Michael Rouveure, expects to be ready for the increase in excursion and activities demand for 2014.
“It is important that we meet our tourists’ needs for St. Maarten to remain a top destination in the Caribbean, especially when it comes to activities and excursions as they are what leave a lasting impression of our beautiful island.”
Some of the very exciting tours offered by SXM Deals are the Grand St. Maarten Beach and Snorkeling Tour that takes tourists to three different islands around St. Maarten and includes snorkeling at Creole Rock and lounging at Grand Case.
Another fun filled excursion is the Powerboat Adventure. Aboard a 33-foot speed boat, guests will enjoy scenic parts of St. Maarten from touring Pinel Island to Maho Bay-Sunset Beach. This new tour also boasts white sandy beaches and snorkeling stops among tropical fish and rays.
For the more adventurous, there is the Pirate Beach and Snorkeling Tour which takes travelers to beautiful waters on both the French and Dutch sides of the island. Between breathtaking views and sights of estate homes and celebrity yachts, travelers can also explore Tintamarre Island and discover its legacy of hidden treasure on this newly added tour.
