Sky Explorer & 360 View

Marigot, Saint-Martin, Saint Martin Island (French)

About this activity


Each adventure at Rainforest Adventures Park begins in this restored plantation house originally built in the 1700s. The Museum tells the powerful story of Trace Wilson, who was born into slavery on the property in 1818 and her direct descendant Emilio Wilson. You will see depictions of what life was like on a plantation and learn about the customs, traditions, lifestyle, and stories that earned St. Maarten the nickname ‘The Friendly Island.’ 

Embark on the Soualiga Sky Explorer for the approximately 25-minute ride to the top of Sentry Hill, one of St. Maarten’s highest elevations at 1,125 feet. The experience encompasses two chairlifts and a series of platforms encircle the mountaintop, showcasing 360-degree views of the island including vistas of neighboring islands Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Barts and Anguilla. When you are ready to descend, simply aboard the Soualiga Sky Explorer and enjoy the scenic trip down the mountain.

After this fun-filled adventure, souvenirs and your photos taken in the attractions are available for purchase in the gift shop or, if you prefer, Emilio’s Restaurant, nestled among authentic antique colonial walls, offers a menu of classic favorites with a new twist.
