Creole Rock Tours

Creole Rock
One of the Caribbean’s great snorkeling destinations, Creole Rock is a small rocky outcropping just off St. Martin’s northern coast. Teaming with the life above and under the sea, the reef is part of a protected marine reserve. It’s also an important bird rookery where pelicans and brown boobies come to lay their eggs.

The Basics
All manner of wildlife thrives at Creole Rock: schools of sergeant majors and yellow snappers, sea turtles, and birds such as pelicans and brown boobies. Travelers may explore Creole Rock via boat, canoe, or kayak, or as part of a tour by way of boat or sailboat. Leaving from Philipsburg, Simpson Bay, or Grand Case, tours typically include visits to St. Martin’s top spots including Tintamarre Island, Sunset Beach, and Baie Rouge.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The area’s coral and abundant fish and birds attract those interested in native wildlife.
  • Tours may include use of snorkeling equipment, lunch, and guides. Check tours for specific details.
  • Remember to bring sun protection, swimwear, and towels.

How to Get There
Creole Rock is a popular stop for diving and snorkeling boats from all points on the island. The fastest way to reach Creole Rock is from Grand Case Bay, where you can join a small boat trip or rent a kayak and paddle across.

When to Get There
Visit St. Martin in spring or fall for well-priced deals and less chance of rain. Weather here is pleasant year-round, with temperatures peaking in summer. Humpback whales can be seen from February to June.

Combine Snorkeling with Fine Dining
Take advantage of Grand Case’s gourmet restaurant scene while on the French side of St. Martin. The charming town on the Anguilla Channel is known for its long sandy beach and for having several of the island’s top splurge-worthy restaurants, such as Bistrot Caraibes, La Villa, Hidden Garden, and L'Auberge Gourmande.
