Enjoyed our day complete yatch tour where they stopped at Tintamarre while we swam, covered ourselves with the mud and then had Bar-B-Que & Salad on the beach prepared by the Yatch crew. Completed the tour with trip around island of St. Maarten/ St. Martin.

A very picturesque little island, a very beautiful but small beach. It's surrounded my crystal clear waters, great for snorkelling with a few dive sites dotted around the waters surrounding the island. The island can only be reached by private boat, private hire boat or...More

What a beautiful place to snorkel and see the turtles. We saw about 6 in 30 minutes, they were just hanging out. Walked on the island but a storm came up so we left. PLEASE help protect this area

We came by boat, on an excursion with Billy Bones Boarcharters and it was an awesome day. The highlight of the day, no the highlight of my vacation, was seeing the sea turtles through my snorkel glasses. Truly amazing

We went on a snorkel tour that included a visit to the island. It's very quiet and peaceful. Snorkeling gave us a peek at sea turtles not too far off shore. The naked boat tour anchored next to us was interesting to behold as well.

Great spot for snorkeling to see turtles and ray's by a lovely beach with fine sand. North west peak of the island also has a ship wreck for divers (30 feet down). On a calm sea day you can snorkel here, saw hundreds of fishes....More

My ride to Tintamare was not rough at all, but I was on a 51 ft catamaran. Typical ocean currents. The ride to Prickly Pear and Anguilla about the same. But if you go all the way around Anguilla the waters are a bit rough... More
