Fantastic day trip to prickly pear with Bruce, Ingrid, and Martin. The beach was wonderful, the service was Martin caught 2 fish on the return trip. Very good over all.

Had an awesome time today on the Bluebeard! Everyone should experience a day on a Catamaran, and the experience on the Bluebeard was incredible. Great job by all the crew, lunch on Anguilla was great, and our tour bus driver kept us interesting by pointing out the sights and keeping us smiling. Loved, loved, loved the Bluebeard. I will be back on my next visit to SXM!!

My wife and I did a Anguilla trip with Blue Beard last week and we had soooooo much fun. The captain and crew was awesome and made sure that everyone was having fun. We would go to Anguilla every day the beaches were that nice, the sand was like a white powder carpet and the water was so blue and clear. Not much to do besides lay on the beach or float in the water but DAMN it was Beautiful there. They had lunch for us on the beach at a restaurant, it was really good food and lots of it, if you went home hungry it was your own fault.
If you come to St. Martin take the Blue Beard trip to Anguilla you wont regret it, bring a camera it's BEAUTIFUL !!!!

Thanks captain and crew for LOTS of fun.....

Before booking this catamaran trip I did A LOT of research on trip advisor. I really didn't want to book a boat ride that I would be disappointed with and I can say 100% that it was worth every penny! We took a day cruise on Bluebeard's catamaran to Pinel Island this week, and from start to finish we had an amazing time!

We started at the Buccaneer bar by Simpson Bay, where signing in was painless and easy then we got out onto the water quickly. The crew was incredibly friendly and they made us all feel at home on the ship. They were really knowledgable and were willing to answer all sorts of questions about the island and the boat as well. The ride over was absolutely beautiful. The weather forecast had said that there might be rain, so we had a relatively small group, a plus for us as we were able to get around the ship easily and could move around freely. While on board we had light snacks and the drinks were free flowing, as the bar was open and the crew members were there taking care of us the whole time.

When we got to the island we snorkeled using Bluebeard's equipment which was in great shape, and while we snorkeled, our stuff was taken up to the shore. The water was beautiful and we did see some really pretty fish, but the snorkeling wasn't the best we've ever done. The island itself is basically a deserted island which we loved. After we snorkeled and swam for a few hours we were served a lunch of our choice between BBQ chicken, ribs, or Mahi-Mahi along with rice and and potatoes. We thought the food was really good and the portions were really generous. At that point we swam around a little more and then got back on the ship and headed home.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that our ride on the Bluebeard was as great as the reviews we read. I've always wondered if the reviews we read are real, but after taking other traveler's words for it, I can say for myself that this is a catamaran trip that we would most definitely do again!

We returned to Bluebeard Charters for a second trip to Prickly Pear Cay. We were considering going to Anguilla to see something new, but enjoyed the sail so much that we wanted to stick with the longer boat ride. We were not disappointed! There's nothing like relaxing on the trampoline and watching the views. The crew was as hospitable as we remembered, and the snorkeling at Prickly Pear was even better than it was last time. It is some of the best snorkeling we have done around the island, with a good section of healthy reef and more fish than we've seen anywhere. We had a great lunch and some time to relax under a rented umbrella with a frozen drink from the bar on the island before heading back.
