We will be in Martinique in a few weeks, and there is nothing from our cruiseline for tours. We have searched the internet, and shoretrips was all i could find in regards to tours. We want to go to St Pierre etc... All private tours I think I find on the net are all in french. I guess I should have took french in high school! I will let you know what we come up with when we get back.

We just got back from RCCL Vision of the Sea for the Jan 18th to Jan 25th sailing, we didn't get to go to Guadeloupe because the Island was on strike so we went to St Barts instead we didn't do much just walked around and people watched the weather was fine after a morning shower. In Martinique we went into town by taxi ($12 for 4 people)
when you get out of the taxi looked to the water side of the road and you can see the ferry docks, the boats go to different beaches the one we went on was roundtrip $9 per person. Barbados is pretty much what you are looking to do go to beaches, rum factory tours or Island tour or just walk around Bridgetown.
Hope you have a wonderful trip
