We decided to do this tour for this island. it was very remote and included our lunch. The lunch was very good and they gave us a free 1 ltr bottle of water on top of our drinks.

You must take the Lambada to get there-it is awesome. When you arrive the catamaran anchors very close to the reef. The reef is loaded with all kinds of fish. Once you are done snorkeling lunch is served on the island and it delicious. Also Allen who rents chairs and runs the bar on the beach is a super nice... More

We took a catamaran trip to Prickly Pear last week. So peaceful and relaxing! The staff was so nice and the lunch was delicious! We got to feed the little sugar glider birds sugar from our hands. So cute!

We took a catamaran from St Martin there which was an 8 hour excursion. It was about 2.5 hours to get there as we sailed. Fun time though once we got there. good snorkeling, great beach, loved the sand. It is a tiny island so you do need to take a boat there.

This island is completely isolated, which means the beach and water are both pristine. Definitely a must see!

This is a MUST DO! Take the Bluebeard 3 to Prickly Pear and get your dive on! Scuba and snorkeling are amazing here and the food and drinks are a big plus!!

This was one of our stops on a snorkel trip. Always good snorkeling here. Too bad they hauled away the shipwreck and the old telephone booth. Our lunch was great there though, and the guy on the beach pours a good drink!
