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.
What a fun day! Anguilla is gorgeous. We had ample time on the beach to relax and enjoy the view of white sand and clear turquoise water. The crew was fun and the rum punch flowed endlessly. The day was a perfect mix of relaxation and fun!
Simply put, this was an amazing day! You can't go past white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, a friendly crew and rum punch! I would do this again in a heartbeat!
We had a blast on this day. The catamaran over was exciting and a perfect sunny day. it was fun to sit on the rope part and see the water pass you underneath. Anguilla is gorgeous. A quiet tiny island, with amazing blue waters. We parked the boat in the water and jumped off and swam to shore. You can take the little boat over but the water was refreshing. We drove to Shoal Bay were we were in awe of the blue water. We had a great lunch on the beach at a restaurant. You are left to do as you wish as Shoal Bay. The crew has snorkels with them to use. I however was under the impression we all stopped somewhere, that would be my only complaint. We sailed back to St Maarten and the captain got some fish, and we all drank and danced and had snacks. IT was a great day!
