“"A screen saver" or "A Corona commercial"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

Prickly Pear is an uninhabited Carribean island, and is the classic vision of one. Take a boat here, snorkel up, go for a romantic walk. Great photo ops.

“Scooby Too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is a great excursion to take while in St. Martin. Just went this past Wednesday on a day trip to Prickly Pear for snorkling/beach/lunch. They pick you up right off the beach at the Grand Case Beach Club. This is the second time we went on a trip with Scooby Too and would do it again! Well worth the $120 each for the day.

“Pretty place, but coral is dying”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We had a lovely boat ride out to Prickly Pear with Bluebeard and had fun snorkeling, but it's obvious that tourism is killing what was likely a beautiful place. When we arrived out to the reef, there were already 2 boats there (from other operators) with about 70 people in the water. The island is still pretty and I enjoyed dreaming of being on a deserted island and never returning to work, but I've seen better snorkeling elsewhere in the Caribbean.
