Just got back from a week in Simpson Bay and took the Lambada to Anguilla on Wednesday. We had a great time and the crew was awesome. The trip was to Prickly Pear / Anguilla.

Unfortunately the snorkeling just isn't that great in this part of the Caribbean but the reef had enough fish and coral to see as it is recovering from the past hurricanes / tropical storms. Lunch on Anguilla was also very good and the beach was beautiful.

If you want a day trip try sailing with these guys to Anguilla!

This was the worst part of our entire trip. I understand that the crossing from St. Maarten to Saba is rough but this doesn't warrant being rude and terrible to your passengers. We took the ferry from Saba back to St. Maarten and were greeted with a rude crew who seemed to care less about the passengers. One example in particular was about half-way through our trip. Another passenger got up to walk to the back of the boat for fresh air. He looked very ill and proceeded to get sick on the boat. The crew sitting up front looked back at him and pointed and laughed at him. Then, they shoved plastic bags in his face and said "that's what these are for". There was absolutely no concern for his well-being. The windows on the ferry also leaked tremendously and all of our luggage was soaked when we got off the boat. I was furious when I got off the ferry...TERRIBLE experience.

We took the Dawn Ferry from St. Maarten to Saba and although, we still had rough waters, they were very pleasant and had much better places to sit and store your luggage.

We booked reservations on the Dawn II Ferry long before our trip to Saba. My wife doesn't like small planes, so Winair was out. We own a boat, and she works on a boat, so the ferry was a natural choice. Shortly before our scheduled date, the Dawn II cancelled our reservation "for reasons beyond our control". It turned out that the reason beyond their control was that they accepted a private charter. They didn't lift a finger to help us find an alternate means of getting to Saba. We wound up booking passage over on the the Edge ferry, and, because of scheduling problems, returned on the Dawn II. So we had to pay the full one-way fare, rather than get the round trip discount. Dawn II refused to make any adjustment.
The passage over on the Edge was not bad. Seas were a bit rough. Not a problem for us, but three of the fifty people on board became seasick. The return trip on the Dawn II was worse. Heavy seas all the way. At least half of the people on board became seasick. Not the company's fault. This is a very nice trip if the weather is good. The Dawn II has an interior cabin and open seating on the after deck. Take the cabin. Everyone on the open deck was soaked.
I found the crews on both boats to be friendly and helpful. The crew on Dawn II was especially good.

My wife and I did the Lambadasunset cruise combined with a dinner at the Stone Restaurant with Aqua Mania. We had a great time. The crew was professional but also a lot of fun. The only surprise was that everyone had to take their shoes/sandals off at the dock before boarding the boat. This was not a problem and we got our shoes back but some people were complaining that they wished they had known ahead of time.
We motored out of the harbor and then the Captain asked for volunteers to help raise the sail. Once raised we sailed west along the southern coast of St. Martin. Rum punch and drinks were served and snacks consisted of chips and salsa, crackers and cheese and some veggies with dip and grapes. It was a fun trip with people dancing including my wife and I. The sunset was beautiful.

We had a very nice meal at the Stone Restaurant after the cruise.

I would definitely recommend this cruise.

I have been diving for 5 year in St. Maarten and 4 of the past five have been with Sandra and everyone at Aqua mania. Last year my 10 year old daughter decided she wanted to get Scuba Certified and the process went great. This year we advanced onto the more difficult Open Water. She had some struggles and Sandra and Anna took the time with her until she mastered the skills needed to complete the test. There are not many dive shops that would have taken the time and worked 1-1 with someone to get it right. Cannot say thanks enough to a girl who is now planning our next dive vacation.

I would dive and have continued to dive with Aqua Mania on our next trips because they are a first class operation. Vinny runs the place like a clock. We are treated like family from everyone to the dive masters Sandra and Anna, to Swani who makes sure we get there and home safe. There are many operations where safety is not the first priority but not here. When diving with my kids, that is a priority and small boat with people who truly do care is so important. If you ever wanted to dive yourself or start a new family activity try it here.
