I'm torn between taking Public Ferry or Flying via "Anguilla Air Service." Everyone have their own reasons why they'd prefer flying than taking a boat ride and vice versa. For me, it's about getting to Anguilla as soon as possible. So given the following variables, which one do you think would make the most sense.
Arrival to SXM - 1:02pm
Anguilla Air - departure 2:30 (1:45 is the earlier one but was told by AAS that I need to reserve an hour minimum)
GB Express- departure 2:30
Public Ferry - depending on how soon I can get to Marigot.
I don't find it a hassle to take the public ferry but I've never been on a small plane and really thought it would be a great experience. I am an Anguilla Card (via Nory) holder and with AAS no longer being one of the participants, I'm now considering just taking the ferry.
I guess ultimately, my question is, how much time am I really saving being that the departure time for both GB and AAS are the same for that day? Can anyone give me a rough estimate being I do not have experience with arriving at AXA. (Last time when I arrived at Blowing Point it was a breeze, didn't take long to get through. Not that I remembered, to be honest.)
Any light you can shed would be greatly appreciated! Have a wonderful weekend!
