Tour description provided by Viator

Enjoy a sailing, snorkeling and sightseeing adventure to the Caribbean islands of Prickly Pear and Anguilla on this 8-hour tour from St Maarten. Starting at Simpson Bay, cruise by catamaran to the Prickly Pear Cays and Anguilla to swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear Caribbean waters. Enjoy snacks and unlimited drinks on board, and savor an island-style BBQ lunch on board. Sip Champagne and take in beautiful sunset views on your cruise back to St Maarten.
Head to Simpson Bay's Police Dock to board your catamaran. Pick a comfortable shaded seat, enjoy the breeze on the sundeck or savor the cool mist on the trampoline area as you leave St Maarten behind and cruise gracefully out onto the clear-blue Caribbean Sea. Grab a drink from the open bar, offering rum and fruit punch, beer and water all day, and enjoy a snack of French baguettes with ham, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and tuna salad en route to your first stop, Prickly Pear Island. One of the Prickly Pear Cays — a small pair of uninhabited islands off the west coast of St Maarten — Prickly Pear Island has a superb beach and shallow waters that are great for snorkeling. Strap on your mask, slip into your fins and leap into the water for your first snorkeling session of the day. Swim around in search of grouper, snapper, butterfly fish and other marine life commonly sighted in these warm tropical waters. After burning off those morning calories, enjoy a BBQ lunch at a typical Caribbean restaurant on the beach or onboard  in Meads Bay or Cove Bay on the nearby island of Anguilla for some afternoon swimming or snorkeling. On board, take in great views of the shoreline from your vantage point on the waves. As the sun begins its descent on the horizon, sip Champagne and enjoy a light snack of banana cake and grapes on your way back to Simpson Bay on St Maarten, where your full-day cruise comes to an end.
