Activities

St. Maarten isn't as famed for its dive sites as nearby Saba and Anguilla, but the Dutch side's new national marine park (designated in late 2010) may change that. It's centred on the Proselyte Reef, named for the coral-encrusted 1801 wreck HMS Proselyte. The marine park is home to whales, sharks, dolphins, sea turtles and stingrays. On your dive, you might spot schools of parrotfish, French grunts, angelfish and other tropical species.
