History of the Ship

Geology of the Southern Windward Islands

  • I am a retired marine biologist, and studied marine geology. I was curious about the geology of the islands I love. If you have ever wondered why some islands have volcanoes and earthquakes, this will help you understand. It is a little technical, but it has good pictures..

  • Tintamarre Island — This is a small flat island off the coast of St Maarten. It is often a  beach stop by Windjammers. I was interested in the stories I heard about the island,. Rumours of German submarines and an airstrip. I took a walk inland and found aircraft parts and wreckage. Thus a look for the history.
