We definitely recommend Tarzan agency and the excursion to Petite Terre with La Roma Crew (ask for that!). The agency Tarzan was very kind and find a tour to the petite terre suitable also for our little kids (2 and 5 YO). In particular the boat La Roma is simply perfect for a family with little kids: fast boat but stable in the sea, compared to a speed boat. Mathias and Pauline, the La Roma Crew and tour guide, were awesome: super agreeable and helpful in explaining us and have us on the boat. Great food prepared by them too! Definitely suggested to use this agency and the La Roma Crew

We booked the excursion “Petit Terre & barbecue with our family. What an unbelievable experience. Even the boattrip was amazing. Such a lovely couple from Tarzan Excursions. They were passionated about Guadeloupe. We got a rich history about Petit Terre and the other islands. We walked on the Island between iguanas. They were so friendly and kind. We even enjoyed a lovely lunch/barbecue on the boat. Great food and drinks 🤩🍹Our underwater experience…swimming between seaturtels, lemonsharks, barracuda’s and tropical fish…unforgetable!!
We can only recommend this trip.

Many thanks for taking us to this paradise, Magalie, Dries, Filip & Leen Van Camfort

My husband and I took a boat trip with Uhaina Croisieres to visit Petite Terre for the day. The water is crystal clear and aqua blue. While we did see a lot of cool fish (huge sea turtle, 3 sting rays, puffer fish), it was pretty depressing when we saw that ~99% of the corals have died from bleaching and have been covered with sad brown seaweeds.

We did not want to get to the reserve by power boat and chose uhaina as their catamarans were smaller than the competition. A little rough on the way out with fantastic snorkeling around the reserve with turtles, lemon sharks, sting rays lobster and a myriad of tropical fish. Great lunch supplied and wine, punch and soft drinks supplied. We had a great time there. Coming back was nice and quiet with no engine noise to suffer. Loved it

Petite Terre is just incredible. I always reserve via Uhaina and have never had a bad experience, but will review them separately. Petite Terre is a magical place and the catamaran ride there is all part of the fun. When you arrive, you feel like you're in the Maldives - turquoise waters, white sand and palm trees greet you as you come in to dock, and you can sometimes make out the silhouettes of stingrays in the shallows. Climbing ashore, you feel like an explorer as your feet touch the ground coral sand. Colourful hammocks are dotted between the palm trees which provide a meeting point and a welcome break from the baking heat, and this is here you leave your belongings and head off to explore. You'll be amazed to see giant conchs, rays, sharks (friendly ones!) and turtles just feet from the shore, plus enormous hermit crabs and dozens of iguanas if you venture inland. Don't be afraid to venture out to the reef... although the seabed is less colourful than Malendure or Leroux, Petite Terre offers a chance to get close to animals you'd normally only see in an aquarium. A barbecue lunch, endless Ti Punch's and a siesta beneath the palms complete this day in paradise.

We booked a catamaran using Uhaina cruise (which I highly recommend and ask for the boat with Tibo and Jeff) leaving from the marina at Saint-Francois. The island is beautiful and the main beach area and water were beautiful. The beach continues around most of the island and if you walk a little you can have the beach all to yourself which allowed us to take our bathing suits off for some nude swimming and sunbathing.
The snorkeling was just ok (you wont be impressed) and we saw a small sea turtle and some fish. The reef was dead and there was really not much to see but was still fun.
