Day Trip to the Island of Prickly Pear from St Maarten

56 Reviews

  • Location: Simpson Bay, St Maarten
  • Duration: 8 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3324PRPEAR
Any trip to St Maarten would not be complete without a day trip to the gorgeous and unspoiled island of sun and sand - 'Prickly Pear Cay', and a swim stop on a beach at her unparalleled sister - 'Anguilla'. Lambada's 10 year history of party boat fun, family gatherings and outstanding crew have made her a constant in the line up of #1 excursions.
Lambada 63' sail cat was the first new breed of day charter cats to arrive in St Maarten in 1996. The boats are very spacious areas with proper seating, a walk up bar and two toilets. There are two nets up front which guests prize as prime positions to sunbathe while sailing, and an angled ladder that is lowered in the front for effortless access and exit into the water when snorkeling.

Lambada provides the means to enjoy what both islands have to offer - food, drink, snorkeling and incredible white sandy beaches. This is the trip often asked for by boat name and not destination. The heady combination of sailing, rum punches and fun loving crew members, ensure a day committed to memory and the scrapbooks. We enjoy a tremendous amount of return guests who name the boat and crew as their number one vacation trip.

This little Cay is pure paradise, lying a short distance off the coast of Anguilla. Completely deserted excepting for the two little restaurants that provide lunch to visitors, nobody lives on Prickly Pear and restaurant staff travel over each day to be of service. This destination is all about relaxation as palm trees bask in the sun and sugar birds dart through the restaurant. Simply gorgeous, Prickly Pear is a great choice for families with kids as the boat anchors for the day in one spot with a nice long beach and shallow waters. Lunch is also a choice of BBQ chicken, fish or ribs and the day is spent languidly snorkeling, swimming or sunbathing.

Great day of snorkeling. The crew was great and friendly. Its a great trip and takes about 7 hours. Good snorkeling and see a lot of fish. Served a good noon meal and get to lay on a wonderful beach. Will go back again. this is about our 8th trip on Lambada. Would recommend highly.
