St Martin for US travelers
Once you arrive to st Martin you may go to the French part by taxi (restrictions for clearance are very blurry, even though France implemented restrictions nobody is checking tourists at the moment, so bars and restaurants are full and people moving from one part of the island to the other). The base manager will do check-in procedure and you’ll be able to sail only French part (Grand Case, Friars Bay, Tintamarre, Pinel), up to Fourchu.
Regarding St Barth, it is advised not to go to Gustavia as now they request clearance out of Saint Martin to stay in Gustavia. Also you can not sail to the Dutch side, because you won’t be able to clear back to the French side. For one week charter is is better to stay and cruise on the French side (the base manager will give you detailed instructions and sample itinerary, so each day you’ll have a different place to stay).
Whether you have to quarantine or not is determined by Antigua quarantine authority. Unfortunately the whole procedure and how they make decision to quarantine or not is not quite clear. It is honestly a gamble. To enter the country it is necessary to have negative covid19 RT-PCR test done within 7 days of the arrival, or better within 72 hrs. But good thing that even if you required to quarantine you can quarantine on boat and allowed to sail. However, you will not be able to go to restaurants or bars etc, to mix and mingle. This is what you should expect only if you are asked to quarantine.
