We went to this island through Lambada at Aqua Mania. It's a long way, about 2 hours on a boat ride. The snorkeling is superb. There is plenty of reefs and all kinds of fish.

Took day trip to Prickly Pear and Anguilla and had a great time. Saw flying fish, Dolphins on the way. Snorkeling was a little rough the day we went to Prickly Pear. Anguilla portion was really good beach and food beach side.

It was a full day of fun, the crew took great care of... More
