All snorkel gear is included and you can go explore the colorful sea life of Martinique. Once you've soaked up the sun you will be on your way to a viewpoint overlooking Diamond Rock.

This Memorial consists of 15 busts arranged triangularly, to represent the slave trade triangle between The Americas, Europe, and Africa.
