AlaskanGrown: St. Maarten is a docking port, you dock on the Dutch side, you need to take a land taxi to get to Orient Beach - its not very far, i think the taxi ride was maybe 10 minutes? I would do the beach/jetski excursion first and then do the shopping. You can shop on the French side after the beach or you can take a taxi back to the ship, drop off your beach stuff, grab a bite to eat, change clothes and then grab the water taxi(really cheap)which takes right into downtown on the Dutch side to shop.
