Divi Little Bay Beach Resort on St. Maarten recently opened a new pier on the property in tandem with Aqua Mania Adventures, one of St. Maarten’s largest water adventure companies.

Beginning this month, a wide range of water sports and adventure tours led by Aqua Mania will start at the 100-foot-long pier, made of steel and concrete and finished with wood for a pleasing look.

Conveniently located on the grounds of Divi Little Bay near the Aqua Mania Adventures kiosk, the pier will serve as the launching point for round-the-island trips, champagne brunch sails, sunset sails and adventure tours.

See below for the weekly schedule of departures from Divi Little Bay, subject to change. For the most current schedule, contact Aqua Mania Adventures.

Debby Lind-Steyn, Manager of Aqua Mania Adventures, looks forward to launching trips from Little Bay. “We’re excited about the new pier at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort,” she says. “Sailing from the Little Bay peninsula is just so beautiful. Our clients will have lots of photo opportunities the moment we cast off.”

Celine Van Meer, General Manager of Divi Little Bay Beach Resort, believes the pier will greatly add to the resort’s guest experience. “Being able to offer our guests fabulous island trips just steps from their hotel room is very exciting,” she says. “We already have our top-notch water sports center that offers scuba diving and a wide array of rental options such as wave runners, paddleboards, hobie cats and pedal boats. This new pier means our guests can enjoy even more fun activities right from our bay.”
