Fan coral, nurse sharks, fish of all shapes, sizes and colors. this is a Grand Turk must-see. I went with Papa J's Tours and highly recommend them as guides.

We were on our way to Gibbs Cay with Grand Turk Divers and stopped here to snorkle the wall. Great fish! We even saw a turtle.

First of all, we were stupid and swam all the way to the reef. That's a long swim, especially when the current was rough. By the time we made it to the reef, we were totally exhausted. I had read that this was the best place to see fish and turtles, but we barely saw anything. The fish that we... More

snorkelling here is good, you see a fair amount of fish, but perhaps not as good as some other places around the island. What is amazing is the huge drop off. I don't dive but I think that it would be an amazing place to dive

This dive, like most the wall dives on Grand Turk is quite good. Our perspective on the diving in Grand Turk is based on multiple trips to Bonaire and Cozumel, as well as Statia and St. Croix. We did a total of 10 dives while on Grand Turk and enjoyed them, but.... We would say the diving is good-to-very-good. That... More

My wife an I came here to snorkel as part of an excursion on a Carnival Cruise. We rode a catamaran out to the spot and got some basic training on how to snorkel (first timers). You float about 15 feet above the coral and it's beautiful. There were lots of fish when we were there and the tour guides... More

Over the holidays, I traveled to Grand Turk and had the opportunity to snorkel at Library Reef. As with any snorkeling adventure, the experiences will vary each time, but when I visited, I was able to see a barracuda, eel, lobster, and even a turtle. The reef seemed more barren than other places I've snorkeled, as far as parrot fish... More
