“Bluebeard to Prickly pear is the way to go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2011

Had a great trip to prickly pear on the Bluebeard cat. The day was outstanding, with a great time on and in the water. Second trip on the BB. Went to Anguilla last time and it was great as well. The crew makes you feel like you are on your own private boat and they are the crew. Terrific service and trip. The snorkelling was good, lunch was also very good on the island and the beach is deserted except for the odd boat tour and is gorgeous. We will be back on the BB next trip to ST Maarten.

“Bluebeard is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2011

We went to Prickly Pear with Bluebeard (the Heinekin catameran), and had a terrific time. The crew is attentive and did all they could do to ensure everyone has a good time.

“Great Snorkeling!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2011

Took a party boat out for the day and Prickly Pear was one of the stops. Snorkeling here was so beautiful. We saw a variety of fish and the reef was breathtaking.

“One of the greatest beaches in the world”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2011

Booked a Thursday trip on the Lambada. Start at 9 AM returns at 5. Great day, absolutely fantastic. The trip out brought you excellent views of St Martin and Anquilla. The reef protected beach is gorgous. 20 ft of crystal clear water. great snorkelling, delicious grilled lunch was served. Only bad thing was you only had about 3 1/2 hours at Prickly Pear. Free beer, wine, soda and water on board in and out along with some cheese, bread and sliced apples. Crew was great keeping everyone loose. Snorkeling equipment on board but bring your own if you have it.

Great day!!! Highly recommended

“Great day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2010

We took a catamaran to prickley pear for some snorkling. The boat was great and the island was beautiful. Above average snorkling and a fun experience on the island. The deserted island had a nice little bar and restaurant on it. Definitely one of the better days on our trip.
