A Message From Great Bay Express
Currently, the local French authorities are enforcing the above COVID criteria unfairly towards any non-French ferry operators. Even though we share an open and uncontrolled border on this small Caribbean island of St Maarten and St Martin.
This enforcement is to better give a competitive advantage to French operators by the use of COVID Mandates with the total disregard of any public safety.
Great Bay Express is locally owned and operated, employing local citizens both Dutch and French with high-paying jobs and opportunities.
Great Bay Express offers a far better ferry option than any French operator can and does in comparison to price, schedule, efficiency, and quality of service.
Great Bay Express travel time to St barth is less than 45 minutes at a lower price. Were in the French-Side ferry operator's travel time is 90 minutes and far more expensive and their schedule is unreliable.
Great Bay Express would like to Thank You for your continued support in these times that we find ourselves in.
