As of July 16, the Anguilla – St. Maarten Ferry Terminal reopened for operation, according to the Anguilla Tourist Board (ATB). The facility had been closed since both Anguilla and St. Maarten were hit by last year’s devastating hurricane season.

The port of entry is housed on St. Maarten and is located in close proximity to the Princess Juliana International Airport. Passengers traveling through this facility are reminded of the US$5.00 Passenger Levy that is charged to every guest who departs from the Blowing Point Ferry Terminal destined for the Anguilla St. Maarten Ferry Terminal, the ATB said.

The ATB wishes to thank the Ministry of Tourism, Charter Boat Owners, the Government of St. Maarten and other Dutch authorities for the diligence, cooperation, time and energy dedicated to getting the facility ready for operation. They also express their appreciation to all private sector partners for their patience and understanding as both the Dutch and Anguillian authorities worked to re-open the Anguilla St. Maarten Ferry Terminal.
