SerenaSea charter boat out of Coral Bay takes to places to snorkel that most boats on St. John do not. The mangroves in hurricane hole is the most spectacular place to snorkel and there is never a crowd.

What a wonderful experience this was! Marie is a breath of fresh air! We took our mom, 82, and niece with us - a boatload of women - and a tremendous experience for all. An amazing day for us all. Highly recommend Marie!
