Reserves Ensure Great Diving in St. Martin

Saint Martin has dedicated marine reserves that cover much of the sea surrounding the main island and smaller adjacent islands. The protected areas cover Creole Rock, Ilet Pinel/Green Caye, Tintamarre and other nearby areas. Protected marine reserves are crucial to the diversity and health of the reefs in Saint Martin.

While not all the dive sites we visit are part of protected marine reserves, we treat all dive sites as if they are. We never anchor on reefs, touch or take sea life, dump trash in the water or allow dangling dive gear to damage our precious reefs. We see ourselves and our guests as part of a community working together to ensure that the marine environment is healthy now and healthy in the future.
