We enjoyed a day trip to Petite Terre with the great crew aboard Paradoxe Croisieres. The boat is spacious and comfortable and the crew couldn't have been nicer. They made sure non-French speakers felt welcome and translated information. The snorkeling was really good and lunch on the beach was really good. On the return sail rum punch and sliced fruit...

We chose Paradoxe cruises based on their reviews and we weren't disappointed. Enjoyed a very relaxing cruise to Petite Terre and a great day snorkeling, eating and drinking.

My group and I have sailed in the Caribbean before and we were looking forward to getting out on the water in Guadeloupe. This day trip to Marie Galante was just the thing. It was a rough sail over and the crew handled the boat really well. They were super friendly and spoke enough English to accommodate those of us... More

Great day sail on a huge catamaran over to the nature reserve of Petite Terre. Even though we were with a fairly large group, the captain and crew did a great job of keeping everyone informed and comfortable. The weather was great and so the snorkeling was also excellent when we arrived. Good food and drinks in a beautiful beach... More

This was a beautiful day trip on a catamaran to visit the pristine island of Petite Terre. The crew were knowledgeable, friendly, and made a special effort to translate for the few of us who do not speak French. They gave a tour of the island, and followed up with a spectacular lunch on the beach. They served fresh salad,... More

Perfect day to a fabulous destination. The catamaran is 25 m long and never felt crowed. Unlike some boat trips, we made it essentially fully under sail so a nice relaxing crossing to the islands of Petite Terre). Super and very friendly crew (thanks, Guillaume, Gary & Wolfie) who explained everything in English to us even though the rest of... More

I truly recommend people visiting guadeloupe to consider making this trip. For my family and I, it was the second time, and even though ten years has passed since the first time we visited petit terre I can gladly say that the second trip was as memorable as the first. Much thanks to Paradoxe. The time on the catamaran was... More

Amazing trip to Petite Terre, a protected nature reserve. You need to know that it is best to book in advance. The crew was great, very hard working and even though it is a predominately French speaking cruise they had translated the highlights that you need to know. The vessel is very spacious and even though the sea was rather... More

The crew on the catamaran were very friendly and skilled. It was a beautiful day for sailing, and they got everyone to shore (and later back to the boat) in a small inflatable motorized boat. The meal that the crew prepared for us on the island was very good. The bus tour around Marie Galante was enough to let us... More
