Cruising on Millie June 21st. I wanted to see if anyone had some suggestions for a tour of this island. I have looked through the messages but still havent come up with an answer.
There are two tours offered that my husband and I are interested in. Either the Golden Eagle Catamaran, or the Explorer Cruise/Grand Sightseeing tour. The latter is a combination land and sea tour I imagine.
I have read that the Golden Eagle is very nice ...now i need some suggestions over the tow choices. We are in our 30s.....and want something that will give us a flavor of the island though nothing too strenuous.
We took a cab to Orient Beach (about $25) and saw the interior of the island (not pretty, quite poverty stricken) on the trip. Orient Beach is beautiful with plenty of water sports and bar/restaurants to get the flavor of the island. We just enjoy sitting at a Tiki Hut having drinks and munchies. The Tiki Huts are right on the sand, it was very enjoyable. Orient Beach is a clothing optional beach next to a gated nudist camp which spills (sorry for the choice of words) over onto Orient. I wish I had the option to clothe some of the people I saw!
