Marine Mammals Charter of Martinique

With 21 species identified, the coasts of Martinique are a privileged habitat for the feeding, reproduction, and migration of marine mammals. The populations residing or passing by represent a headcount and diversity that guarantees a strong probability of sightings and an attraction rich in emotions for spectators.

However, the continuous ever-growing approach of vessels and the wrong treatment of animals represent a real threat to the population of local cetaceans. A charter that specifies the best practices for approaching and sighting of cetaceans in Martinique was thus drafted with the following objectives

  • Ensuring protection for cetaceans and reducing their disturbance
  • Planning to offer quality ecotourism that can be both responsible and spectacular
  • Organising sightings of cetaceans for sea users in a framework of mutual respect

Super découverte des dauphins et tortues Sortie après-midi dauphins et tortues super intense et sympa. Pas mal de distance à grande vitesse (rigolo) pour aller au nord voir les dauphins. Puis retour au sud en passant à la grotte aux chauve souris, pour un snorkelling à grande Anse à la découverte des magnifiques tortues broutant le fond marin. Merci à l'équipe de nous avoir attendu malgré un regard (notre activité du matin avait fini avec beaucoup de retard, nous empêchant d'arriver à l'heure).

A faire absolument ! Nous avons fait la sortie hier matin en famille, Yannick a été au top! Gentil, pro, pédagogue et en plus très sympathique, la sortie était parfaite et dans le respect de la nature. Nous avons eu la chance de voir des globicephales et des dauphins tachetés par dizaines. Les enfants ont noté l’expérience à 10/10 et 20/20, que demander de plus.

Super Yannick Journée inoubliable avec Yannick skipper planète dauphin qui commence par la chasse aux dauphins à toute vitesse où tout le monde participe petits et grands, et qu'elle merveille quand le bateau s'arrête derrière un groupe de Dauphins en train de chasser, qui frôlent le bateau " comme dans les films", ensuite en 2ième partie baignade et chasse aux tortues qui effectivement sont bien là, passent tout à côté de vous en remontant respirer à la surface puis replongent pour manger, des images magiques... On ne remerciera jamais assez Yannick pour ces moments, sa compétence et sa gentillesse, pour nous de très loin la meilleures excursion en mer qu'on ai jamais, et la seule qui ai tenue toutes ses promesses
