Birding / Birdwatching Tour St.Maarten – St.Martin

See Our Birds

Whichever month we’re in, there will always be birds to see and interesting phenomena taking place on St Maarten and St Martin: in summer we’ll have our resident birds breeding and during the rest of the year we see birds from the Northern Americas coming to our island to escape the cold. We’ll also see a variety of land birds, many of which are endemic to the Lesser Antilles and the Caribbean. During this 4 hour ( and possibly plus) tour we’ll visit at least one salt pond, one fresh pond, a bushy area and sandy shore.

Birdwatching is best done during the early hours of the day. It’s a bit cooler then and the sun casts a softer light over our avifauna which is especially nice when you are also into photographing the birds and other wildlife we’ll come across.

All our Birding Tours have a maximum of 3 guests. For a Private Group, Large Group or Customized Tours check out our Private Group Tour section or send us a message.

Our vehicles are air conditioned.
