Guadeloupe has replaced the damaged St Maarten in the 2017 Caribbean season, so it has got much busier. Many years ago we went to Guadeloupe to shoot a commercial for BP with an underwater diving team. We never went to the port so this was our chance. Your ship stops in the working port of Pointe-à-Pitre, which you may well be in and out of quite quickly as you will see from the film. It is a beautiful Island of Beaches which you can see from our ship taken Panoramic Tour, ideal for those with mobility problems but an ideal look at the island for anyone who wants to see more. It is often called the Emerald Island because of its flora. It can have 8 meters of rain in some areas during the rainy season, June to November. This film shows the the hot and busy Port. Take a look and then research the tours on offer, the ship will offer very similar with from and to ship returns.
