This is a historical site and certainly worth a visit. Part of the US National Parks so take your cards to get in. Closed toe shoes are better than sandles.

Perfect for beginning snorkelers. Small children can enter shallow water with no surf. Great place for teaching how to use snorkel gear. Clear water. Paid parking g nearby, but only $5 for two hours. Great place.

I taught my 5 year old, and 10 year old children to snorkel here. There is an abundance of fish and the water is really calm. This ancient site makes for a great background. Had a great time.
