Either the tour company will pick you up at your hotel in St Maarten (see Important Info for included hotels) or you'll make your way to Simpson Bay's Pelican Marina to board your boat.
Find a spot in the sun or shade on the decks of the luxurious catamaran, the 'Lambada,' and enjoy the scenery as the boat sails up the western coast of the island to Plum Point, then across the channel to the neighboring island of Anguilla. Get to know your friendly crew and drink a few rum punches open bar on the way to your first stop, Prickly Pear Island.
The boat will moor at Prickly Pear, a small uninhabited cay off of Anguilla, so you can enjoy the quiet and solitude among the white sand and palm trees. Slip on some of the provided snorkel equipment and dive in, or simply swim up to the beach to lounge in the bathwater-warm shallows. Snorkelers will float among the vibrant coral and groups of darting tropical fish. The crew may instead steer the boat towards the reefs off Prickly Pear Cay, depending on the weather and conditions.
After your visit to Prickly Pear Cay and its surrounding reefs, climb back aboard the boat and dry out in the sun as the captain steers towards Road Bay, a lively stretch of beach on Anguilla proper.
Upon landing on Anguilla, enjoy the provided barbecue buffet at Roy's Basyide Grill that includes ribs, fish and chicken. Hang out at Road Bay Beach for the afternoon. Relax, stroll the stretch of sand or hit up one of the many beachside bars.
Your 8-hour adventure in Anguilla ends with a sail back to St Maarten, and drop-off at select hotels.
