What to expect
After pickup from your St Maarten hotel, you'll transfer to Kim Sha Beach in Simpson Bay to meet your departing catamaran. Climb on board to meet your experienced captain and friendly crew, then pick an ideal spot on the deck to relax. Soak up some sun, seek out shade or find a place on the trampoline area to catch some sea spray. Sidle up to the open bar or grab a snack of French baguettes. Watch the St Maarten shoreline recede into the distance as the boat heads toward the neighboring islands. At Prickly Pear island, don your provided snorkeling gear and jump off the boat. The shallow waters and soft sand beach make this island a great spot for seeing the native marine life like butterfly fish, snapper and grouper. After all this activity, refuel with lunch at a beachside restaurant. Dig in to a traditional Caribbean barbecue meal while enjoying the seaside breeze, then climb back on your boat to cruise to the next stop. Sail for Cove Bay or Meads Bay on the neighboring island of Anguilla. Spend the afternoon enjoying more of the Caribbean's undersea life while swimming and snorkeling. Get great views of the island from your marine vantage point. On the way back to St Maarten, watch the sun sink toward the horizon with a glass of Champagne in hand. Munch on grapes and banana cake before returning to the dock, where your full-day cruise ends. Enjoy drop-off back at your St Maarten hotel.

Piece of Paradise
Mar 2020
WOW, WOW, WOW! I can't say much more than that. From the check- in experience at the Simpson Bay Police department from boarding the Catamaran and embarking on a trip of a lifetime sailing to Prickly Pear, Anguilla and La Semana my best friend and I were all smiles! From the minute we boarded, we were welcomed by the crew and captain. Prince, Kyle and Kiva were amazing from the get- go making us all feel at peace and like family.
We disembarked for Prickly Pear first. We sailed across the ocean where we went through a spot of fish eating, Prince dropped a line in the water hoping to catch something but wasn't quite lucky enough. I became quick friends with Kiva as she took care of me and so did Kyle when I became a little sea sick after going below deck. They gave me something to smell and rub behind my ears as well as got me in the open wind and laid an ice pack on my neck. They surely knew how to take care of me and NO sickness happened!
We spent the day on the nets tanning and feeling the splashes of the water come up to cool us. We enjoyed finger sandwiches before lunch in Anguilla served and made fresh by Kiva.
Snorkling in Prickly Pear was paradise as well as enjoying the crystal blue waters in Anguilla. The BBQ lunch was amazing and they had plenty.
By the time lunch came around we all were laughing and were a big ole family dancing to music, sharing stories and much more.
Our last stop consisted of La Semana back on the French side of St. Maarten! BEAUTIFUL it was the best stop yet ( and I thought nothing could top Anguilla) to a wonderful end of the day and we all jumped off the boat and enjoyed a floating bar. The views, the people, the experience was 10000000% worth it and I can still picture Prince feeling the Afrobeats he played and was dancing to as the wind brushed his braided locks and we sailed off into the horizon.

The BEST Sailing Crew and the BEST EXPERIENCE! Well worth it all and so much was included for such a low price!
Thank you, thank you, thank you again for such a lifelong and memorable experience!
BLESS

My Ultimate Prickly Pear And Anguilla Experience
Mar 2020
Our day started early with the bus picking us up at our Villa at about 8AM. This gives enough time to pay your $20/head tax, and have your passport number recorded at the dock office. Our trip left port around 9:30, the bus was full. As soon as we leave the dock we were given our safety instruction in case of an emergency. Once that was out of the way, the beverages began to flow freely, and a morning snack was served. Time slipped by real fast while we cut the ocean swells with a sleek catamaran to Prickly Pear Island. This is where anyone who wishes to snorkel is set up with mask, snorkel, and fins, or one can chose to go ashore. We sailed to Anguilla's west coast and were served a cold lunch which was good eats. Mean time there was an open bar always open. Mario and his crew took good care of all passengers and treated us like family. We made one last stop on a beach on the south west coast of St. Maarten for one last swim. Then it was off again with champagne in hand headed back to the dock to end our tour where the bus was waiting to take us back to our hotels, and villas. This was a trip that took the better part of the day, but I had a ton of fun and laughs and would highly recommend this one. The "TOO RHUM PUNCH" has my two thumbs up.

Excellent Catamaran Tour
Mar 2020
Totally enjoyed this tour last week with friends. All the staff with whom we interacted were friendly and helpful. They put our safety and enjoyment first, explaining professionally why we could not go to Prickly Pear but finding other things and stops for us. Particularly enjoyed Kyle and Prince who served us graciously and answered our questions along the way. The BBQ lunch was delicious and the drinks always plentiful with high quality rum in the punch. Impressed that the rest rooms were constantly cleaned and cleared. The beach stop in Anguilla was just beautiful with clear and warm water, the option to swim into it or ride the tender. This is a not to miss experience for St. Martin visitors.
