    Excellent PMT dive site. Turtles, tarpon, barracuda, nurse shark or lemon are waiting for you. Watch out for the current for young children. On the site it is indicated different colors for the buoys, in reality they are all white. We were two out of 14 buoys available. The 2 or 3 charters leave at 4 p.m. Barbecue possible on the beach. Passing the bar is impressive, especially at the exit but is done without worries.

    Excellent site de plongée en PMT. Tortues, tarpon, barracuda, requin nourrice ou citron sont au rendez vous. Attention au courant pour les jeunes enfants. Sur le site il est indiqué des couleurs différentes pour les bouées, en réalité elles sont toutes blanches. Nous étions deux sur 14 bouées de disponible. Les 2 ou 3 charters repartent à 16h. Barbecue possible sur la plage. Passer la barre est impressionnant, surtout à la sortie mais se fait sans soucis.

    One of the best snorkeling experiences in the Lesser Antilles, in my honest opinion. We saw big Tarpons, various rays, turtles, small lemon sharks and lots of other big fish. The current can be strong. During the day from 9-4 it's packed with day tourists out of St François. If you grab any of the white mooring balls on the right hand side (coming in to the anchorage), you'll be chased away in the morning. It seems near every bouy is prebooked long time ahead by whatever floats to bring day trippers out here. Many of the white bouys one should think is for visiting boats are occupied by small ribs also bringing day tourists out here (on top of all the regular charters, having their own bouys). Make sure to walk the lighthouse round, it's very scenic with lots of iguanas. In the night your boat will be surrounded by big fish attracted to a flashlight, such as (small) lemon sharks. A wonderful place to spend the night. We visited three times with a keel boat of 1.9m draft. Only possible in a weather window of light winds and for us wave height no more than 1.6 meters on Windy, but make your own assesment. Any more waves and it starts to break all over the bar, but you'll experience big swells nonetheless, but we never saw less than 3m depth over the bar. Catamarans arrive surfing in on higher swells. Good idea to arrive/leave on high tide. The suggested GPS route/waypoints in the Doyle guidebook worked well for us in and out. In our two first visits, during the Christmas holiday there were no park rangers. On our third visit a park ranger welcomed boats in the morning and afternoon and directed to a bouy.

    20 euros a night isn't that a bit exaggerated ???

    20 euros la nuit n'est ce pas un peu exagéré ???
