Humpback whales return to Saint Martin!


Mr. Bernard Mérian had the privilege of witnessing the presence of two humpback whales, Sunday afternoon, at 16:10 pm sharp between Anguilla and St-Martin, 2 nautical miles from the coast.

The yachtsman did not fail to take many pictures of this exceptional moment.

Each winter, the humpback whales come to reproduce in our waters, more precisely in the plateau formed by the islands of Saint-Martin, Anguilla and Saint-Barthélemy. The Caribbean Sea is a privileged habitat for feeding, reproduction and migration of large marine mammals, protected since October 15, 2010 by the establishment of a sanctuary.

In the French West Indies, the Agoa sanctuary, dedicated to the protection and conservation of marine mammals, covers the entire exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of the French West Indies (Martinique, Guadeloupe, St-Martin and Saint-Barthélemy). _AF
