Watch: Incredible Footage of Humpback Whales in the Waters Off Saint Martin

If you haven’t been back to Saint Martin because you’re waiting for them to “rebuild”, I have some news for you. First, much of the island has undergone a rebirth — due to the hurricane, of course —Β  and the result is something that has to be seen to really be felt, understood, and appreciated. Second, the nature of and around this tiny island has bloomed and it’s never been more strikingly beautiful.

As further proof of the latter statement, a local owner of Captainjo Boat Charter, Johann Pidoux, posted some incredible footage on Facebook of a few humpback whales swimming in the waters just off Saint Martin over the weekend. Words don’t do this footage justice, so just watch for yourself, relax, enjoy, repeat.

I am a U.S. citizen living in Phoenix, Arizona, with my wife and two sons, ages 4 and 6 (and yes, they LOVE SXM as much as we do!). My family considers the island a second home and we’ve been there countless times. We love the culture, the people, the community and the beauty of this island. The people have always made us feel at home and welcome. This is a small way for me and my family to support an island and it’s people that we hold so dear.
