St Maarten (St Martin)
IMPORTANT- TAKE SEA SICKNESS MEDICATION AND BRING EXTRA SUNSCREEN!! LOOK FOR VIATOR COUPONS ONLINE TOO; I SAVED 10%!
We had a blast on this trip, but it would have been pretty awful had we not taken sea sickness meds. Even with them, I got nauseous for about 30 minutes as the seas were kind of rough. There were a bunch of people in the back of the boat who were puking. We all sat up front where you are much less prone to sea sickness and were you have a great view. If we had brought extra sea sickness meds on the boat with us, we would have made a lot of new friends that day!
Now, with that advice out of the way, the trip was great! You ride a catamaran for about 2 hours to get to Anguilla. The crew is wonderful and make sure that you always have a drink in your hand. They served apples, bread, and cheese after 90 minutes or so, and it hit the spot. Very close to Anguilla, they stop for "snorkeling" which was really pretty awful snorkeling... there is better snorkeling off of some of the beaches on St Maarten. Then you head over to Anguilla which is a short trip. There, you swim to the shore (or take a little dinghy) and get lunch. There are a bunch of different sauces on the tables in old soda bottles- TRY THEM! There was this one fruit-based BBQ sauce that was amazing on the ribs.
I really can't explain it; on paper, it sounds like this trip should be ok, but in reality our group of 7 had a blast. You wont regret doing this trip!
