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 —  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 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.
