Cleared customs and had coffee and short walk around Deshaies in Guadeloupe , then set sail to Pigeon Island about 8 miles to the S along the coast . Tied up to mooring buoys there (very close to the rocks) and went snorkelling before switching to a mooring on the mainland . We had dinner there before setting off for overnight sail back to Antigua .

Swimming (snorkelling) 45:00 [3] 0.9 km (50:00 / km)

snorkelling at Ilet Pigeon (Pigeon Island- actually 2 small islands) .on W coast of Guadeloupe

1 fin dropped off the back of the boat so had to free dive down to about 12 meters depth (long way down) to retrive it. Came up with bloody nose and took a minute for my ears to clear !

Lori and I swam /snorkelled all way around the island (clockwise) with strong current between the 2 islands on the S side (wind change ? - saw a large eddy area on NE side later)- tiny (1 foot tides only here)

Very nice wall (maybe 5- 10 meters ) on N side of island and shallower shelf on S with lots of marine life and some nice corals .
