Dolphins are among creatures that can be seen
Karine Roy-Camille has been witness to an acrobatic show provided by Mother Nature.
Roy-Camille, Canadian director for the Martinique Tourist Authority, recently led a fam trip to Martinique that included a catamaran cruise with local firm Calypso.
And the waterborne tour provided sightings of some of the energetic dolphins found in the waters off Martinique’s shores, with the ceataceans routinely breaching and submerging while passengers on the Calypso and other nearby catamarans looked on.
Calypso sailings provide a varied look at coastal Martinique, with passengers able to view the likes of a sea cave and visit the charming, seaside community of Les Anses d’Arlet.
Food and drinks will be served to passengers, who will also be entertained by different types of music.
Those passengers can either bask in sun or stay in a shaded area on the catamaran.
Those same passengers will have a chance to spot more marine life when they’re invited to swim or snorkel in an area frequented by sea turtles.
Sunset cruises are also available.
Meanwhile, those who were on the cruise with Roy-Camille and were delighted at spotting some dolphins might want to thank her for the sightings.
“I sent them a message to appear and they answered the message,” she later joked of the mammals’ appearance.

Air Canada now links Montreal and Martinique and will begin Toronto-Fort-de-France service in December.
