Know More about this tour

Head to Simpson Bay's Kim Sha Beach to board your catamaran. Pick a comfortable shaded seat, enjoy the breeze on the sundeck or savor the cool mist on the trampoline area as you leave St Maarten behind and cruise gracefully out onto the clear-blue Caribbean Sea.
Grab a drink from the open bar, offering rum and fruit punch, beer and water all day, and enjoy a snack of French baguettes with ham, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and tuna salad en route to your first stop, Prickly Pear Island.
One of the Prickly Pear Cays a small pair of uninhabited islands off the west coast of St Maarten Prickly Pear Island has a superb beach and shallow waters that are great for snorkeling. Strap on your mask, slip into your fins and leap into the water for your first snorkeling session of the day. Swim around in search of grouper, snapper, butterflyfish and other marine life commonly sighted in these warm tropical waters.

After burning off those morning calories, enjoy a BBQ lunch at a typical Caribbean restaurant on the beach. Re-board your catamaran and cruise to Meads Bay or Cove Bay on the nearby island of Anguilla for some afternoon swimming or snorkeling. On board, take in great views of the shoreline from your vantage point on the waves.

    All in all very nice . All staff was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful places we visited. But multiple pickup locations made it a very long process to get going. From the time we were told to meet to the time we left was 2 hours

    Every single one of the crew members was accommodating and professional! The waters were the clearest ocean I personally have ever seen which made the snorkeling that much more amazing. The food and drinks that were provided were delicious and shout out to Tamera for never letting our drinks go empty!! To top it all off, they provided a champagne toast at the end of our trip as the sun was beginning to set. It was a beautiful day, we seriously could not recommend them enough! This will absolutely be the first excursion we book when we come back!

    Well..we got to the island..the service was horrible,the food was..ok I guess..paid so much money and felt like we were forced off the island when they was ready to leave.. the island was an excellent experience but they need better customer service

    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

    First off I have to say Captain Mario and his crew treated everyone on our tour like family. After the safety instruction were out of the way, the crew was open to requests for beverages, adult or not. A morning snack was served along with beverages, mean while up beat music played all day long. Swim and snorkel at Prickly Pear and head for the west coast of Anguilla for a pre-catered cold lunch and beverages, and a swim. Depart for the south west coast of St. Maarten for another swim, the ocean is so warm. As we head back to port, we are greeted with a glass of champagne for the last leg of our journey. A bus service is provided, ask if your hotel is on the pickup/drop off list. I highly recommend this tour. Captain Mario and his crew where stellar and great fun bunch of guys to be around. Two thumbs up to the “TOO RHUM PUNCH”

    We had a wonderful time on the catamaran to prickly Pear and Anguilla. The hospitality on the boat was wonderful! The beaches we went to were breath taking. The food was great! Unlimited drinks! I would highly recommend.

    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.

    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.

    Our hosts Kyle, Prince, Dean and Tamra were absolutely amazing!! They really made sure everyone had a great time and we did!!! The catamaran was super clean and spacious. This was one of the best catamaran trips we've taken. The atmosphere was relaxed and fun! Wonderful experience!

  • 03-Mar-2020

    We had an amazing time on the trip! The sights were gorgeous. Capt.D, Prince, Kyle and Tamara were great hosts! The swells and current were a bit rough that day, but we still had a great time. We will do again.
