The Carbet des Sciences (Science Hut) is Martinique's center of culture, science, engineering and industry. Its mission is to spread scientific knowledge to as many people as possible. At the end of 2013, the Science Hut developed the first underwater trail in Martinique, from the foot of Thierry Islet to Franois Islet. This area, marked by 16 yellow buoys, is dedicated to underwater exploration using flippers and snorkeling equipment. Sailing and motor-boating is strictly forbidden, as is mooring one's boat to the buoys. The path is marked with 6 white educational buoys. It is accessible to anyone who knows how to swim (Length: 800 meters, time: 1 hr., 30 minutes). Self-guided visit is free. Guided tours for groups available on request, for a fee.
