What You Can Expect

Anguilla Day Trip from St Maarten: Catamaran Sail with Snorkeling at Shoal Bay

Enjoy the beautiful beaches at Shoal Bay!

Departing from Simpson Bay Resort aboard the 63-foot (19-meter) catamaran Tango, you'll cruise to the unspoiled island of Anguilla – one of St Maarten’s closest neighbors. The competent crew will ensure you have a fun and safe sail over the clear Caribbean as you relax and enjoy drinks from the open bar, along with a snack -- a French baguette with Gouda cheese and apples!

Upon reaching Cove Bay, the brilliant white stretch of sand may just take your breath away. Disembark and meet your driver, who will take you on a scenic driving tour up the length of Anguilla’s pristine coast to laze the hours away at beautiful Shoal Bay. You’ll have great views of tropical beaches and the St Maarten hills from this little piece of paradise.

At Shoal Bay, rated one of the 10 best beaches in the world, sink into a beach lounger under an umbrella for the rest of the day. Take in the sight of endless white sand against turquoise water as you relax on this world-renowned beach with a drink in hand. Enjoy wine, beer, rum punch or simply a soft drink from the Sunset Beach Bar (own expense). When you feel hungry, choose from barbecued chicken or ribs for lunch.

After you've soaked up the sun, your driver deliver you back to Cove Bay for a lively return sail to St Maarten.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Pick up from hotel on time, organized registration by local operator Aqua Mania. The crew was absolutely dedicated, cater to everybody's need and beyond, onboard as well as on shore. All staff was extremely pleasant and knowledgable, lunch was yummy, free drinks were flowing aboard the catamaran. Onto Anguilla, comfy air conditionned bus with sympatic driver, the island tour was fun with plenty of informations about local coutumes. Shoal Bay has pristine, fine sand, lots of sun chairs and almost 3 hours to snorkel...which was amazing. Equipment is included and snorkeling is right at the beach, really close, and beautiful.I would not only recommend this tour but I will do this tour again!
Viator was great to deal with; I had a glitch in regard of St Barth tour which had to be cancelled, and Viator refunded with no hassles in a quick manner. I will book with Viator again.

Took this Day Trip on March 18, 2014. Got picked-up from our Hotel at 7:45am to head over to Simpson Bay. At arrival, staff checked us in. Bring your passport. After a short wait, we took the “Tango” Catamaran and sailed to Anguilla. The ride over was great. It was smooth sailing on a perfect sunny day. You can sit on the back or in the front “rope” area. The “Tango” crew were friendly. They serve you with Rum Punch or beer and a snack (cheese and baguette). We arrived and docked in Cole Bay. You have the option to jump and swim over to shore or take a small motor boat to shore. We were driven across the island to Shoal Bay. White Sand and Clear Turquoise Water = AMAZING. It’s your free time so you do whatever you want. You can opt to just chill or snorkel (staff will provide the gear). Then we had lunch over at the small restaurant by the beach (included). Options were burger, chicken BBQ or ribs. Alcohol is at your own expense. Mid-afternoon, we headed back to Cole Bay to start sailing back to St. Maarten. Had a great time! Anguilla’s Shoal Bay is a must see beauty. Thanks to the "Tango" crew.
