Anniversary - Advice getting to/from Anguilla and St Barths

Fist timers...from what I have gleaned from all three forums and other research, thinking about flying into SXM from US in the spring, but really just leveraging it for the airport. Leaving from there to go to Anguilla for at least two nights, then from Anguilla to St. Barths for 5 nights, then back to SXM to US direct flight. Thinking we would do hotel in Anguilla more for the beach time and explore island and villa in St Barths to have more privacy/view and avoid mosquitos. Hoping no need to stay overnight in St. Marteen to transfer between the two due to extra time and money.

Do we need to ferry over to St Marteen from Anguilla and then ferry again to St. Barths? Are they in the same harbor?

Is it better/cheaper to fly from Anguilla over to St. Barts?

Reading about these departure taxes so looking at net cost and saving sea sickness ride I read about for St. Barts, at least one way.

If you don't plan on spending anytime on St Maarten see if you can do it all without exiting the St Maarten airport.

Otherwise, I would think your best bet would be ferry from Anguilla to Marigot (daily every half hour, about 20 minutes depending on ferry, usually calm), then the Voyager ferry from Marigot to St Barts (only once or twice a day, not every day, schedule subject to change, about 45 minutes, can be rougher).

Or ferry Anguilla to Marigot, taxi to Grande Case and fly to St Barths from there.

If there is a direct flight from Anguilla to St Barths take it even if more expensive - it will be 1/4 of the time as your best transfer through St Maarten.

You should repost your question on the Anguilla and St Bart forums. You will get better answers there.

I have done this same itinerary. We ferried to Anguilla and stayed at The Cuisinart then ferried back to Marigot and taxied to Grand Case airport and flew on St. Barths Commuter. It's a short flight and the landing on St Barths is awesome. Others on these forums have reported that the ferry ride to St Barths can get pretty rough. Anguilla and St. Barths are both great but very different islands and we loved them both.
