The Basics

Board a luxury catamaran at Simpson Bay for the 12-mile (19-kilometer) sail across the channel to the flower-filled island of Anguilla. Along the way, make a snorkel stop at Prickly Pear to swim among butterfly fish, snapper, and grouper feeding off the tropical coral. Then enjoy a barbecue lunch and head out to picturesque Anguilla beaches such as Cove Bay and Meads Bay for more swimming and relaxing.

Great trip on “Quality Time”

We had a great day! The weather was rough but they gave us the option to cancel but we went ahead! We personally loved the ride even getting wet by the waves. They said normally it was like our ride back which was very smooth. It was to rough to snorkel. The food was good and the crew was great! Over all a great day to be on the water. I would recommend this tour!

My TOO RHUM PUNCH Experience

Ultimate Prickly Pear and Anguilla Experience
First off I have to say Captain Mario and his crew treated everyone on our tour like family. After the safety instruction were out of the way, the crew was open to requests for beverages, adult or not. A morning snack was served along with beverages, mean while up beat music played all day long. Swim and snorkel at Prickly Pear and head for the west coast of Anguilla for a pre-catered cold lunch and beverages, and a swim. Depart for the south west coast of St. Maarten for another swim, the ocean is so warm. As we head back to port, we are greeted with a glass of champagne for the last leg of our journey. A bus service is provided, ask if your hotel is on the pickup/drop off list. I highly recommend this tour. Captain Mario and his crew where stellar and great fun bunch of guys to be around. Two thumbs up to the “TOO RHUM PUNCH”

Quality Time on "Qaulity Time"

My husband and I have been to St. Martin a number of times now, and I can honestly say that this catamaran trip is the best thing we've done in all our times on the island!! We plan to do some type of excursion with Eagle Tours every time we're in St. Martin! The crew was amazing...very personable, fun to joke around with, extremely attentive, etc. etc. The group of people we were with that day was fabulous, and we really enjoyed meeting folks from places all around the world!! The catamaran is appropriately named "Quality Time," as that is exactly what we had!! Strongly recommend!!!

Anguilla’s Path to Independence

Many centuries after the Amerindians made the island home, English colonists arrived in 1650, establishing corn and tobacco plantations. Some 100 years later, the French took over, followed again by the English. In the 1950s, Anguilla joined neighboring St. Kitts and Nevis to become the Federation of the West Indies, only to leave the union and declare itself a separate Dependent Territory of the United Kingdom in 1980.
