Jardin Botanical Gardens

A visit to the wonderful Botanical Gardens located at Deshaies is a nice shoreside attraction. Besides a large display of tropical flowers and trees, the park also features rivers and ponds, and hosts a collection of flamingos, parrots and tropical birds. Allow 60 to 90 minutes for a complete visit. The park has a panoramic restaurant (open for lunches only) and a gift shop. Opening hours are from 0930 to 1730hrs, 7 days a week.

Carib Waterplay

Carib Waterplay is THE place for any windsurfing need. Jean Michel runs his business, ideally located on the beautiful beach of St Jean (next to La Plage restaurant) since 1983. As an excellent windsurfer himself, he keeps updated on all the latest technology and always offers a choice of high tech and brand new equipment for all levels, from beginners boards with a lot of buoyancy… to ‘sinkers’ for advanced clients. St Jean is the perfect spot for all levels, with a protected lagoon and nice waves behind the reef. They offer lessons for any lever and rentals from one hour to long term.

7e Ciel Kiteschool

Last year saw us receiving an enthusiastic round of recommendations from numerous yacht crewmembers and guests alike for Enguerrand Espinassou and his kite surfing school. Enguerrand Espinassou is a certified instructor in St. Barth, with international and French diplomas, and one of the first and best French kitesurfers around. With now over 13 years of experience in teaching this exciting sport, he offers private classes for all levels, from 9 years old up, and packages of 3 to 5 sessions accompanying his students with a boat and VHF assistance.

Fun Caraibes

This kitesurfing school is ideally located on the beach of the Cap Est Lagoon resort - in a beautiful lagoon of Le Francois, on the windward coast - offering perfect conditions for kitesurfers of all levels. Fun Caraibes is run by the friendly and English speaking Lionel Sauvaget, who started his school in 1999 and was the first one in Martinique. They have all the latest equipment including brand new ‘bow kite’ - the new wing technology with better safety. They offer classes from first time beginners to advanced riders with 3 clients max per session.

Immersion Caraibes

Over the last years, Immersion Caraibes has been recommended by numerous Captains who used their services for themselves and the crew during a long break in Martinique; and also for visiting guests and owners. Located within a colourful wooden shack inside the Marina, this diving school run by the very friendly Christophe is open to any “a la carte” suggestion. Christophe speaks very good English and will personally take his clients to all the best spots in Martinique. As a true sea lover, he likes to share his passion with others.
