    Walt G. has created these prepayments link for cruise ship visitors to reserve seats on their day's group tour. Prepayment links are at bottom.

    Important Cruise Ship Details: As cruise ship arrivals are a once-a-year (or less) event on Saipan, we typically arrange tours way in advance. Right now, we are already being contacted by folks who wish to experience my "Saipan in a Day" island tour (culture/scenery/history) that begins the moment we pick you up at the dock, until we drop you off from half-hour to an hour before the ship leaves. (We've been doing this for years, so you can rest assured, you won't miss the cruise ship's departure). That standard option puts you in vans of 12-15 passengers, each van has its own driver/guide, and we tour the island as a convoy. I participate and oversee so that all goes smoothly. That option is $149/person

    But wait! There's more!

    I strive to invite and involve "special guest" guides, local luminaries, cultural experts and other cool people to make your tour experience one-of-a-kind and the envy of the other cruise ship passengers who were not fortunate enough to stumble upon my site before their arrival! Here are a few:
    A previous year's crew feature Chamorro cultural expert, John Castro (2nd from left) and Carolinian community elder and master navigator, Lino Olopai (orange shirt)

    During another year's tour, long-time Saipan resident since 1979, former Acting Attorney General, and private practice attorney Joe Hill shared his knowledge of CNMI history. Attorney Joe Hill (floral shirt) educates the crowd

    We request full pre-payment (change the quantity for the number of people you are paying for once the pre-payment link is visible.) The payment is 100% REFUNDABLE should you cancel or if the ship does not dock for any reason. (We actually had such a situation a few years ago. Here's what one customer wrote (unsolicited) on Tripadvisor.com about her experience getting her refund.

    Please email me at walt@discoversaipan with the names of folks in your group to be added to the list for the next cruise ship arrival on Saipan! (Please indicate date of arrival!)
