We never ended up on the Island of Guadeloupe…although we overnight on her side…but Pigeon Island was a great stop over for a snorkel. That is just something you have to do if the name Jacques Cousteau rings a bell….(the Cousteau Marine Park was one of his creations in the area) .
Pigeon Island – is where Cousteau filmed part of the movie “Le Monde du Silence”….something everyone in France must have seen at some stage!?(I haven’t yet…)…judging by how many French are visiting the island!
I will remember the day for a few different reasons…the snorkeling, the dinner on board of Orchid and that we came so close ..but never had enough reason or good enough weather to go ashore Guadeloupe!
