Anguilla Catamaran day trip

What is the most reliable company to use for a day trip to Anguilla. Would like to hang out on Shoal Bay Beach and soak up the sun. Also would be interested in Stand Up Paddling on Shoal Beach? Thx..3 weeks to go!!!!

We took the Aqua Mania catamaran trip out of the Simpson Bay resort. We had the choice of staying in Cove Bay or going to Shoal Bay. By time you take the bus/tour around the island and get to Shoal Bay, you really only have about 2 1/2 hours on the beach before you have to go back to Cove Bay where the boat docks. If we were to do it again we would just stay at Cove Bay. The beach seemed to be just as nice if not nicer than Shoal Bay and the cost is a little cheaper. You definitely get more beach time staying there than traveling to Shoal Bay.

There are three awesome trips to Anguilla, by catamaran or powerboat. You can read all about them here: sxmdeals.com/st-maarten-excursions-anguilla-…

We are thinking of doing the same, but many on TA have advised to just take the ferry from Marigot over, then getting a taxi to SBE. Try to work something out with the driver if you would like a few other beach stops. This would give you more time on the island. We're torn as to what to do as well.

We went with Bluebeard tours in December. You can book it online on their website and get a discount for doing so. You leave from Simpson bay on a catamaran. Lovely ride with an open bar. It was quite choppy when we went so we landed on the least choppy area and then took a bus to shoal bay, which only happened because of the weather.

The boat was clean and the staff were awesome. They included a lunch buffet which was delicious and one rum punch. There is a bar there to purchase any other drinks that you might want. The only issue that we had is that they should have offered water - we had brought some with us, but otherwise you had to buy it. Only drawback. The bar on the boat is included and they are great with the service.

Would not hesitate for a second to go with them again.
