Activity details

The îlet Caret is an uninhabited islet located in the Grand Cul de Sac marin and is about 250 meters long and about 20 meters wide on average. It was created by underwater movements due partly to earthquakes and to the wind and the sea. Every year, the islet changes shape, and certain sandbanks disappear and new ones take their place.

The excursion starts from the moment the boat leaves the harbor with a trip along the coast. You will see the Ste-Anne cliffs, the Petit Havre beach, the Rocher du Diamant (Diamond Rock) of Mare Gaillard, Gosier, and the Fort Fleur d’épées big bay, among other things.

You will get in the Petit Cul-de-Sac marin through the Rivière Salée, where you will discover the mangrove.

You will go through the Pointe à Pitre market on La Darse if the group asks to stop there (except on Sundays and holidays), and then go through the Grand Cul de Sac Marin.

You will go along the coral reef to get to îlet Fajou, where you will be able to go snorkeling, with fins, masks, and snorkels provided.

You will have a break to have your meal with your feet in the water at îlet de la Biche. This 5-star meal includes:

  • Starters: ceviche (fresh fish tartar marinated in limes) and salad;
  • Main course: fresh fish fillet (without bones) marinated in olive oil and cooked on the spot with a side dish of sauce chien (dog sauce) and creole rice or tabbouleh;
  • Dessert: flambéed bananas in rum.

Swim at Îlet Caret in the afternoon with a return planned for 17:00.


  • Snorkeling gear (fins, mask, and snorkel)
  • Raincoat
  • Drinks and meal including fresh, home-made marinated fish
