CHAPEL HILL, NC (July 25, 2016) — Divi Little Bay Beach Resort on St. Maarten recently announced the opening of a new pier. This 100-foot-long pier, which took 8 weeks to build, is made of steel and concrete for durability and finished with wood planks to add visual appeal.
Starting this month, the new pier will become the launching point for a wide range of water sports and adventure tours arranged in concert with Aqua Mania Adventures, one of St. Maarten’s largest water adventure companies and Divi Little Bay’s water sports provider.
The pier, conveniently located on the grounds of Divi Little Bay Beach Resort near the Aqua Mania Adventures kiosk, will offer a wide variety of round-the-island trips, champagne brunch sails, sunset sails and adventure tours.
Debby Lind-Steyn, Manager of Aqua Mania Adventures, looks forward to launching trips from Little Bay. “We’re excited about the new pier at Divi Little Bay Beach Resort,” she says. “It both enhances the amenities at the Resort and expands our service from another key St. Maarten location. Sailing from the Little Bay peninsula is just so beautiful. Our clients will have lots of photo opportunities the moment we cast off.”
Aqua Mania’s current daily schedule of departures from the new Little Bay pier is as follows:
