Grand Case Crab Pier

Five months into our stay on St. Martin, we snorkeled the Grand Case pier for the first time. Today, I went back and discovered that the pier is almost entirely made of decorator crabs! Although that’s not literally true, the number of crabs hidden amongst the sponges, algae and tunicates on the pier astounded me. So I went back to get my camera and below are some shots of the many decorator crabs and other crabs I saw there this afternoon. You may find it a bit of a challenge to find the crabs in a few of the photos below.

Another favorite snorkeling spot for sure!
