  • Location: Simpson Bay, St Maarten
  • Duration: 8 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3324ANGUILLA
Discover the paradise beaches of Anguilla on this full-day trip from St Maarten. Sail aboard a catamaran and stop at Prickly Pear Island, one of Anguilla’s offshore cays, where you’ll snorkel in clear turquoise waters and swim with colorful fish teeming around a coral reef. Or laze around in the warm shallow waters along the shoreline. Enjoy a satisfying lunch at Roy's Bayside Grill on rollicking Road Bay Beach and explore its palapa-covered beachside bars before sailing back. Round-trip transport from select St Maarten hotels is included.
At Pelican Marina in Simpson Bay, climb aboard the spacious catamaran Lambada. (Pickup and drop-off are available from certain St Maarten hotels; see Important Info for details.)

Sail up the western coast of St Maarten to Plum Point and then cross the channel to Anguilla. During the journey, sip on rum punch purchased from the onboard walk-up bar and enjoy attentive service from your fun-loving crew.

Arrive at Prickly Pear Island, a tiny uninhabited island devoid of touristic bustle. At this rare retreat, you’ll find only blue sky, pristine white sand beaches and palm trees. Feel yourself relax instantly in this postcard-perfect scenery, and experience a Pavlovian salt taste in your mouth when you hear seagulls and pelicans squawking above.

Don the provided snorkeling gear and jump into the transparent blue waters of the Caribbean. As you float along this aquatic paradise, you’re rewarded with views of coral reef rife with brightly colored fish and other marine life. The smaller children in your group can splash in the shallow waters along the shoreline, or dip their toes in the island lagoon.

Depending on the weather and sea conditions, your expert crew may instead take you to snorkel at reefs around Prickly Pear.

After snorkeling, climb back aboard Lambada and relax as your captain navigates the catamaran to Road Bay. Calm your rumbling stomach with a scrumptious lunch (provided) at Roy's Bayside Grill, typically offering a buffet of BBQ chicken, fish and ribs.

Spend the afternoon combing through Road Bay Beach’s charming little bars and lounging on the soft sand. Take a final swim in the breathtaking blue waters before sailing back to St Maarten.

Great ride to Prickly Pear, but unfortunately didn't get to see Anguilla. Crew was great but we were told that the resorts were closed for 2 months so we didn't go ashore.
