Definitely worth the all-day excursion. Take the captain at his word that you will get much more sun than you think. On the race back to St. Maarten we hit 19 knots. Beautiful... read more

Captain Rodney and Denny, his 1st Mate were absolutely the best hosts and made this excursion a highlight of our trip to St. Maarten! The sailing was fun and yes, you will get wet, but that's why you take this adventure in the 1st place... Swim and snorkel at a beautiful destination - we went to Meads Bay,Anguilla and it... More

Did the Prickly Pear/ Anguilla day trip. Started out with good weather which progessively got worse. Ended the day in pouring rain which left us with a full expirience of what can happen on the water. Can not say enough about the Crew. Captain David, Firstmate Denny, Deckhand Lena.

Wouldn't mind doing this trip multiple times during a vacation! The crew has some of the best personalities and customer service I have ever experienced. The prickly pear trip is gorgeous. The open bar and lunch was wonderful. We were lucky enough to only have 6 people on our charter so it was very personal and fun. Captain let me... More

We invited all of our wedding guests to join us on the private charter for the day and absolutely loved it! We had 26 people, the price was great and Alain was fantastic to work with. The staff on the boat was friendly and made the day amazing. We did have a few guests that got seasick on the trip... More

Check in is a breeze and once on board the crew is always so nice and accommodating. They make a great rum punch which helps to get... More

The four of us decided to rent a boat for a day charter while our friends were in town. We looked at many ads but decided to go with Arawak of Bluebeard Charters because I know the boat and the captain. We could not be happier. The trip was fast, furious and adventurous. We even got to steer the cat!... More

We sailed on the Arawak and it was one of those adventures you will never forget! The crew was amazing and you could tell they loved their jobs. I would highly recommend anyone to do this all day sailing adventure with the 2 person crew. This was defiantly the highlight of our trip to St Martin and will do it... More

I don't often place reviews but thought I would share ,my experience with this excursion. I had requested a transfer from my hotel and was picked up promptly by a lovely person Nowal , who was the operators wife.

We did the day sail on Arawak (part of Bluebeard) on April 26. The weather cooperated and provided us with the perfect day form sailing. We were on Arawak two years ago when they were breaking it in so it was a short trip just doing speed runs. The current trip is an all day trip. We have tried many... More
