Ready to reserve this excursion?

Enjoy a unique tour where the highlight is the beautiful carousel that you can take a ride on. A good option for families.

- Marvel at and ride on a beautiful carousel.
- Enjoy authentic gelato made daily.

Full Description:
Departing the pier, relax and enjoy a short narrated tour on a 20 minute drive to Cole Bay International Look Out Point for a brief photo stop before proceeding to Simpson Bay. Here you will discover the carousel, one of St. Martin's newest treasures, a living art form, whose sixteen sided architecture and cerulean tiles grace the water's edge like a dazzling oasis.

Upon arrival, you will be greeted by a knowledgeable guide, who will share the art of making authentic Italian gelato. You'll have a chance to savor the delectable gelato made daily with only the finest natural ingredients along with a beverage.  Outside, gardens of blooming hibiscus and gentle palms set the stage to stroll and view an intriguing photo gallery.

Adjoining the path, a beautiful circular room built out on the water holds the heart of the carousel's fancy, where a magical Venetian carousel with finely painted ponies and polished brass ornaments shimmer and prance to the music for all to ride.

This tour is good for families and young children as well as those with mobility challenges who can negotiate a few steps on and off the bus.

What to Bring:
- You should always take your Sea Pass card (provided onboard the ship) and photo identification when in port.
- Sun protection
- Camera

What to Wear:
