We had fun snorkeling here. The water is very clear and it is easy to see the stingrays and sharks. It is a bit overcrowded with tourists from the Cruise lines.

This was a highlight of our 6 snorkeling trips. There were plenty of ray and sharks and the snorkeling was not too vigorous. I definitely would add it to your list if you're in the area.

Anyone with a boat could take you there, but probably easier just to go on a trip. People who own boats are probably tour operators anyway... Some of the operators feed the sharks too so they are more likely to come to the... More

You’re in deep water but the guide we had, had a life ring that you could hold onto. It allowed you to snorkel a little but have the security of the life ring near you.
