Any good snorkeling an hour or 2 drive from Davenport?

Hubby and I are staying in Davenport for 6 days the end of February. We both love to snorkel,

We already plan on going to Cocoa Beach for a beach day, and also Clearwater. Is there any snorkeling close to either of those? Anywhere else we should go? Budget is tight , so I can't do any excursions, has to be close to shore.

Thanks in advance!

No.

For the best snorkeling you need a reef system, and palm beach county and the keys are where you find this.

In your case, being west of the Orlando attraction area, you might look into the limited snorkeling at Point of Rocks in Siesta key, and I think there may be a boat wreck mid coast on AMI but can remember where it might be. These are just over 2 hours drive.

Well there are some snorkel trips out of Clearwater, but you would need to pay - boats go miles off shore - there are a few operators.

You could also look at snorkelling in freshwater, springs, such as Crystal River, Weeki Wachee or places like Devils Den. All about 2 hours drive. Admission fees or boat trips involved.

Blue Spring State Park and Wekiwa Springs State Park both have snorkeling available.
