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!

I thoroughly enjoyed my swim and snorkel experience at tintamere island. The water was so warm,clear, and inviting. Watching the Geen Turtles was so much fun. The coral was so beautiful and the fish were very colorful.

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

If you have the time, take a boat trip that makes a stop at Tintamarre island and swim with the turtles. The water is crystal clear, the beach is pristine.

Came here with a tour by 'Captain Alan'. Shallow Waters, clear like a pool. Saw turtles and stingrays. Very peaceful place away from the other more touristy beaches, we enjoyed it!

This is an expansive swimming area that us loaded with sting rays and turtles. I followed a turtle for an hour as he ate the eel grass and came up for air every couple of minutes. I was able to swim closely to him so that I could touch his shell. We swam side by side three feet apart a... More

The ride was bumpy, but the Captain and his crew were great. They were attentive to everyone's needs and safety appeared to be a priority. Tintamarre Island, Creole Rock, and Grand Case were all worthwhile. I used Viator to schedule the trip and they also did an excellent job of taking care of the logistics.
