Day Trip to the Island of Prickly Pear from St Maarten

Day Trip to Prickly Pear from St Martin

Lambada 63' sail cat was the first new breed of day charter cats to arrive in St Maarten in 1996. The boats are very spacious areas with proper seating, a walk up bar and two toilets. There are two nets up front which guests prize as prime positions to sunbathe while sailing, and an angled ladder that is lowered in the front for effortless access and exit into the water when snorkeling.

Lambada provides the means to enjoy what both islands have to offer - food, drink, snorkeling and incredible white sandy beaches. This is the trip often asked for by boat name and not destination. The heady combination of sailing, rum punches and fun loving crew members, ensure a day committed to memory and the scrapbooks. We enjoy a tremendous amount of return guests who name the boat and crew as their number one vacation trip.

This little Cay is pure paradise, lying a short distance off the coast of Anguilla. Completely deserted excepting for the two little restaurants that provide lunch to visitors, nobody lives on Prickly Pear and restaurant staff travel over each day to be of service. This destination is all about relaxation as palm trees bask in the sun and sugar birds dart through the restaurant. Simply gorgeous, Prickly Pear is a great choice for families with kids as the boat anchors for the day in one spot with a nice long beach and shallow waters. Lunch is also a choice of BBQ chicken, fish or ribs and the day is spent languidly snorkeling, swimming or sunbathing.

Great day of snorkeling. The crew was great and friendly. Its a great trip and takes about 7 hours. Good snorkeling and see a lot of fish. Served a good noon meal and get to lay on a wonderful beach. Will go back again. this is about our 8th trip on Lambada. Would recommend highly.

This was an amazing day trip. The catamaran ride to Prickly Pear was an exciting part of the day's experience. The captain and his staff made it easy for everyone to have a great time by making all aboard feel relaxed and safe while serving snacks and drinks throughout the trip. Once at Prickly Pear, we enjoyed seeing a variety of underwater creatures while snorkeling using the provided equipment. We explored a bit of the beautiful beach, had a chance to swim in the crystal clear water, and sat under an umbrella taking in the beauty of the island. The included lunch at the restaurant was delicious and filling. We highly recommend taking this trip with Aquamania!

We had a GREAT time on this tour and, would recommend this for singles or families. The weather was nice the entire time. Our meal was excellent (the chicken and ribs combo). I enjoyed the snorkeling part of the trip. The crew was the best we've had. They worked real hard to make sure everyone had a great time. If we ever make it back we'll always do this tour.
