Fantastic day sail aboard the fast catamaran 'Arawak'. We're sailors at home and were looking for a real sailing experience in the Caribbean. We couldn't have found a more perfect day trip. Captain Rodney takes great (and well justified) pride in keeping 'Arawak' in top shape for going fast!! Even though the winds weren't that great, we managed to fly... More

We like to sail. We had a fantastic day on the arawak sail boat. This is a racing catamaran, if you want a thrill that is the boat to take. From 9:15 to 4:30 pm, we went from island to island on unspoiled beaches. The expert crew made us feel very secure even if we were almost flying. Sailing does... More

Being on multiple catamaran trips throughout different countries, this one was the most mediocre. First off, how does a catamaran play elevator music. We had one of the guests plug in his phone so we could actually listen to regular music. The drinks on board were very nice and the staff was accommodating. HOWEVER the lunch on Anguilla was practically... More

We wanted to sail and this boat did just that. Originally booked for a Monday sail the wind was not cooperative so we rescheduled for Friday. It was worth the wait! Plan for a full day of sailing as it does not return to dock in time to get guests back to cruise ships. Plan to get drenched as you... More

We had a great day with Bluebeard travelling to Anguilla. The ride to Anguilla is very rough as you are going against the waves but, as we don't get seasick, this made the trip more fun for us sitting up front and getting splashed by the waves! The bar is open for the entirety of your trip there and back.... More

I'm Alain the owner of BLUEBEARD Charters I'm really sorry to hear what happened to you !!! My assistant was a good reaction refund. The behavior of the taxi driver is totally unacceptable and I stopped working with her. This is extortion of tourists. Thank you for giving us back information. Indeed we had an agreement with her at $15... More

Hubby & I went on a day trip to Prickly Pear on board their Heineken catamaran. The crew was amazing. Ingrid made sure we had enough drinks and snacks during our trip. Truly one unforgettable trip - already making plans to go back to St. Maarten and go sailing with this crew again!

We sailed on a large catamaran (Arahawk) to Anguilla and a neighbouring island for a snorkelling and beach trip. The guides, Rodney and Bruce, were great; highly knowledgeable, and their presence made the trip extra special. They took really good care of the guests and were just the right level of friendly. The sail itself was really special due to... More

We have been on Bluebeard, the Heineken boat, and had a very nice day in the fall of 2014, but Arawak is a completely different experience. This is adrenaline packed full on sailing at a speed we have never experienced. Bruce and Rodney were excellent hosts and very interesting to talk to. Saw a large school of Tarpon in Little... More

Our day spent the Bluebeard was a highlight of our vacation! We went to Anguilla and had a delightful lunch and couple of hours on the beach. The boat ride was so pleasant. They were constantly offering us food and drink and the ride was very smooth. I don't think anyone got sick, which was a nice surprise after taking... More
