Rumor has it that the Rapid Explorer will start again as of Feb 11, 2008 from Chesterfield Marina in Philipsburg to Gustavia. Someone from Premium IV, a destination management company in St Barth, checked with the Port Authority and they confirmed. The Rapid Explorer is a high-speed catamaran with airline-type seats and air-conditioning. The trip from St Maarten to Gustavia takes about 45 minutes. The Rapid Explorer stopped operations about a year or a year and a half ago do to engine problems. Having them in service again will be a welcome relief to the only other ferry, The Voyager, which takes 90 minutes from Marigot, St Martin and is infamous for its rough journey.
