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.

It was an organised tours on a boat, we sailed from the Port of St Francois to Petite Terre for the day. please be aware that you will need some (lots) of sunscreen and bring some water bottle! we arrived mid morning, and the sun was already blazing, then we had a little drop by the beach and they proposed us a guided tour of the Island, and because it is around noon and there is no shades, bring sunscreen, sunglasses, hat and T shirt to protect yourself. the visit was very interesting with the lighthouse, the different herbs we can find on the Isle, and the beautiful landscape on the other side, and last but not least the Iguanas, lots of them.
then we came back on the beach where a tent was dressed to eat and drink. the Captain and his team were friendly and nice, however if one little remark should be made is that there is a lot of alcohol (Rum) but not so much of soft drinks and water. the food was traditional and good, and sufficient. the afternoon was spent scuba diving in between the 2 Island where there is lots of fish, turtle and sharks. I would definitely recomend this for a day out!

We took a boat out here for the day with the kids. Overall, we found the trip worth it. The island itself was full of things to keep the kids occupied. Easy snorkeling off the beach. Hermit crabs on the beach. Iguanas up near the light house. Easy beaches to explore. Fresh, well prepared lunches. However the main point of going out here is to see the reef. On this point, we were disappointed. It was probably spectacular 20-30 years ago. But probably due to abuse, the coral has been seriously degraded over time and much of it is now dead. We saw some large fish and a small shark. No turtles. From this perspective, we found Basse Terre much better.
