Great trip, great food and drinks. One in our group forgot to take motion sickness pills and lost her lunch.
It was an ok day trip. Prickly Pear beach was pretty and quiet. Lunch was provided by a few residents of Anguilla and was quite good. I had the chicken. While I did snorkel, I did not see anything but seaweed which was what a number of other guests stated also. Some said they saw a few fish but nothing to really talk about. Not sure if this was because it had just stopped raining right before we arrived. The crew was good and included the guests in hoisting up the sail. Men on the way out and women on the way back.
The crew onboard was excellent in rough waters. My complaint is with the ground transportation to and from hotels. It was very disorganized. we were directed to the wrong bus and when the error was detected we were put on public transportation to get back to the hotel. We did not feel safe.
From where we left, Simpson Bay, the boat ride was much too long in relation to how much time we had at PP....seems like we just got there had lunch and had to come back. Now if you don't mind a very nice catamaran ride to a destination you won't care. On the plus side, there was some time lost going because we came upon a school of dolphin and the captain stopped the boat so we could enjoy our new found friends.
All day trip for 1 hour tops of snorkeling. Average views underwater. Ran out of food at lunch, had to settle for chicken instead of requested ribs. Lot of for what you got.
