Getting to St Barths 

 

Unless you are chartering a yacht or a plane (and if that’s the case we would very much like an invitation), there are 3 ways to get to the island, and we have ranked them in order of our preference.

ONE TIP: You can now search and book NYC -> SBH (or whatever origin you’re flying from) on Google Flights, Kayak, and other booking websites all in one reservation. This will make your trip more convenient and simplifies the baggage transfer process. Just note that any changes to the itinerary must be done through your travel agency or airline (Tradewind cannot make changes to their flights when booked this way).
 

OPTION 1:

  • Book a flight to San Juan. Then book a separate 1-hour flight to St Barths on Tradewind Aviation.
    • We prefer this route because it’s the most efficient. It doesn’t require clearing customs (since San Juan is a US territory). Plus, the Tradewind Aviation planes are nice, and the San Juan airport is more comfortable than Saint Martin. Also: Tradewind has a “lounge” (We use the term loosely) for guests to sit and wait during their layovers before boarding. It has Wifi & a fridge stocked with cold wine and beer. No frills, but what more could you ask for?
    • To browse flight times, you can contact us to book your trip 
    • Flights are expensive. At the LEAST, you should expect to pay $600 round-trip, if not more.


      OPTION 2:

 

  • Book a flight to Saint Martin (Princess Juliana Airport). Then book the 10-minute puddle jumper flight to St Barths on either: St Barths Commuter or WinAir.
    •  It’s still a fine option, and if the flight prices are significantly cheaper (which they often are) we would go this route. Be aware that the planes are SMALL, and some people find the landing to be….a little scary. Personally we don’t mind it—the entire flight is legit 10 minutes! In fact, we think the landing is among the most beautiful we’ve experienced (except for the Maldives.)
    • In our experience, there’s no major difference between St. Barths Commuter and WinAir, which are the two airlines that fly to St Barths from Saint Martin —
       

OPTION 3:

  • Book a flight to Saint Martin. Then take a 30-45 minute ferry from Saint Martin to St. Barths. 
    • This is what we would like to describe as our “last resort” option. You should choose the ferry if:
      • A) You’re deathly terrified of small planes (and we don’t mean ‘slightly scared.’ we mean…you physically can’t bring yourself to get on a small plane without having a panic attack.)
      • B) You’re trying to do St Barths on the “cheap” (good luck)
      • C) You booked last minute and all the flights are full.
    • There are two ferry companies—Voyager and Great Bay Express—  there’s no major difference between them.
