Tintamarre, or as the English called it "Flat Island", lies to the north-east of Sint Maarten. It is part of the French side of Saint Martin.
There is a beautiful white sand beach and anchorage in the protected lee of the Island. There's good snorkeling for beginners in the shallow calm waters and without a doubt the cool tropical breezes make this an ideal stop. The Island is part of a marine reserve and therefore a strict principle of “Take only photographs and leave only footprints” is applied.
We get on board at Boca Marina at 8:30am, which is the old Uncle Harry's Restaurant, opposite the airport runway on the lagoon side. Neil will have breakfast on board for you. Breakfast consists Baguette, Cheese, Cream Cheese, Yogurt and a platter of fresh fruit, Juice or Coffee.
Celine Charters sail through the 9:00am bridge on the French side, and have a 2 1/2 hour sail up the Anguilla channel to the island of Tintamarre. We arive there around 11:15 am.
At Tintamarre everybody relaxes. You can go for a swim or snorkel and the mud baths are a lot of fun. There is a place on the beach for clothing optional sunning and swimming for those so inclined.

In the afternoon, after we have finished lunch, we can have a last swim at Tintamarre and then sail to Creole rock.
While at Creole Rock, we engage in spectacular snorkeling. Your snorkel gear is provided on board.
After snorkeling we then head off to the nearby happy bay to do the mud baths. Happy bay is secluded and rarely has anyone there. We also do the mud baths at the back of the boat to accommodate non swimmers.
Once back on board a platter of Pineapple, Strawberries and a selection of chocolates is served.
We leave Happy Bay at 4:45pm in order to be back at the French bridge for the 5:30pm opening. Once through the bridge we do a little "frozen drink surprise". We will be back at the Boca Marina around 6:00pm.
