St. Maarten: Full-Day Catamaran Sail to Prickly Pear Cays

1. St. Maarten: Full-Day Catamaran Sail to Prickly Pear Cays

Enhance your St. Maarten holiday with a full-day sail to the gorgeous and unspoiled islands of sun and sand – Prickly Pear. The Lambada has a 17-year history of boat fun, family gatherings, and an outstanding crew. This is always a top-ranked excursion. Departing from Simpson Bay Resort, the Lambada sails down the coast of St. Maarten and across the Anguillan channel with a heading bound for Prickly Pear Cays. The 16-mile trip from St Maarten is about an hour and 45 minutes. After snorkeling the reefs at Prickly Pear, enjoy a tasty meal at Johnno's Prickly Pear. Choose the BBQ chicken, fish, or ribs, and then enjoy some free time beach combing, swimming, or relaxing in the sun. On the way back to St Maarten, anchor off Mead's Bay for a refreshing dip before pulling up the sails for the trip back to Simpson Bay. During the nice leisurely sail back you’ll be treated to foot-tapping Caribbean rhythms and a tasty rum punch.

What people are saying about Prickley Pear Island

The trip was a very enjoyable experience where new friends were made.

The only negative aspect was that we were told that we had to be there at 8:00 am sharp where we did not board the boat until 8:50. We stood in the hot sun watching the crew get the boat ready. They should have had the boat ready prior to our arrival. Other than that The Day of Sailing was wonderful the crew was great, The people on board were all about having fun and we did. All Day Long!

Awesome!!!

It was a great experience. The crew are friendly, pleasant, funny and helpful. There was plenty to drink, we had snacks on the boat, lunch was very tasty. With every stop you get enough time to enjoy and experience. The best thing was sailing back, then there was enough wind and the engine was switched off and we went sailing a lot. Super!!!

A beautiful day of sailing and more!

We loved the sail and the stop at Prickly Pear for snorkling and the stop at Anguilla for a wonderfully tasty lunch and a swim. The captain and staff were awesome. The bread - cheese - apple snack was perfect!

The crew was the absolute best they were very attentive and made for an awesome trip I highly recommend this trip
