WATCH: Breathtaking Video of Incredible Underwater World in Waters of Saint Martin

The island of Saint Martin is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. Its stunning beaches, lush jungles, vibrant towns, friendly people, and diverse history combine into one of the most unique experiences in the world. Of course, those are all things that are on full display the moment you step foot on the island.

One thing we don’t all get to see as often is that which lines beneath the glimmering blue-green waters of the seas that surround Saint Martin.

In the video below, posted on Facebook by the Saint-Martin (French side) Tourist Bureau, we get an incredible look into the gorgeous scene under the waters surrounding the island of Saint Martin. Uber talented photographer and videographer Agnès Etchegoyen, shot some really amazing footage of the seabed from various locations around the island.

Etchegoyen grew up in Saint-Martin and started diving when she was 12-years-old. “It’s cetacean season right now,” states Etchegoyen. “There are many, many whales. Every time I go out, I see about eight in a day.”

The scenes shot here are almost surreal, with a vast array of underwater flora and fauna on display. I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did. Be sure to follow Saint-Martin Tourism and  Agnès Etchegoyen Photographe on Facebook.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
