That's a real tough order. We've been trying to find something, but haven't been successful. RCI offers the following excursion, but not for our specific cruise for some reason:

Hidden Forest Adventure Tour With Lunch

Approximate Duration: 3 Hours 30 Minutes
Adult: 74.00 (USD) | Child: 64.00 (USD)

You will be escorted to the seldom visited center of St. Maarten to Loterie Farm, a nature's collection of vegetation on an old Plantation settlement. Upon arrival you will be introduced to your guide and issued a bottle of water before setting off into the forest.
The hike takes approximately one hour along a trail through rainforest canopy climbing out of the hidden canyon into the heights of Pic Paradis. Your guide will point out and explain features en route, including a fresh water stream and secret spring, ancient mango trees, the famous Guavaberry trees, a historic look-out point, and the origin and use of hundreds of species of tropical plants and trees.

Upon return you will have complimentary drinks of Rum or Fruit Punch at the Hidden Forest Cafe. The Hidden Forest Cafe is well known on the island for its cuisine, and you will be able see for yourself while you have a tasty lunch before going back to the ship.
Note: Sensible walking/hiking shoes are required, and guests should be prepared for moderate exercise. A stop can be made in town before the ship, but the guest will be responsible for making there own way back (which is approximately $3.00/person).

To fully participate may require extended periods of physical exertion, extensive walking, climbing, or biking. There may be numerous steps, inclines, cobblestones, and other rough terrain throughout the excursion. These excursions are the most active and have been designed for participants in excellent health and very good physical condition.
