We walked in the ship's area with numerous stores. Then, we took a cab (numerous available) to go to Marigot on the French side. There, we visited the flea market and walked around, sat for drinks in a restaurant, watching people passing by.
Same excursion with Stingray swim. Clear water, many fishes and clear coral.
Stingray Swim Rating:
What an experience. You are about 30 minutes by boat from mainland and here you are in shallow sandy water up to your armpits at the most. We were about 30 people on our boat and there was some 7 or 8 other boats. All in circle around an area smaller than a half of a football field.
The guides carry some pieces of squid. And here come the rays, swimming between your legs. The guide takes one of them, lift it (app. 3 ft wide) on top of water and you hold it yourself. Fantastic feeling.
