Swim with the turtles

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!

We pulled up on our chartered boat for our snack. It is beautiful with red rock cliffs, plenty of iguanas and e biggest hermit crabs we've ever seen! Beautiful, white sandy beaches with tranquil crystal clear waters!

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.

Visited the island on the Aqua Mania Santino Cruise with Captain Roy. We loved snorkeling here and walking on the beautiful unspoiled beach. It's definitely a place worth visiting if you love nature and beautiful beaches.

Took the Scoobi Too tour out here, (highly recommend them) and was not disappointed. We went snorkeling here and saw two sea turtles up close also a variety of fish. The ocean bottom was pretty clean, so not much else to see but it was worth it.. There is also a mud bath on the island but we ran out... More
