Overview
Highlights
    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.

    We went on this excursion on January 15, 2020. My family has been on many catamaran excursions and this was the worst. We were assured safety was the first priority and the captain would not go through the channel to Anguilla if it was to windy. That being said we went
