Normally I am not much of an adventurer, but my husband and I did a catamaran tour that took us to Tintamarre. It was so beautiful and we actually got to see turtles while snorkeling! What a great experience!

It was great to see this island. There is nothing on it but that is what is great about it. We took a Catamaran out of Marigot to see the island and it took us there, creole rock, included lunch, and then over by some ritzy hotel. Amazing time!

We came here on a day trip on the Scoobi Too (highly recommend!) and stayed for 1-2 hours snorkeling. We could have stayed longer, but it was a perfect quick trip. We saw at least three sea turtles & plenty of fish. If you have time, it's worth the trip over.

We stopped here to snorkel and have a snack as part of a tour with Captain Alan. We enjoyed the snorkeling and getting to see a few turtles in the clear water. The water is quite deep where the turtles eat the sea grass, so you are decently far away from them unless you dive down or wait for them... More

This island is excellent to visit by a day trip. It was really calm when I visited this lovely paradise and the area is fantastic to swim and snorkel; also swimming with many turtles was a great experience!

Have been to St Martin a dozen times and always take the Tiko Tiko day trip from Club Orient. Great snorkeling and swimming. Explore the north end of the island to see old WW!! gun bunkers built to shoot Nazi subs if they tried to set up a base there. Best part of all is,if you take the Tiko Tiko... More
