We took a bus to Paradise Cove from our resort in Freeport. I was a bit concerned at first when I saw how far the rocks/reef are from shore, I'm pretty fit but the distance appeared daunting. However, the water is very shallow almost all the way out. On my way to the rocks, I saw a huge stingray, and... More

This was my third time there and I was instantly welcomed. The staff is friendly and very knowledge about the reef. The safety brief is like a tour itself. The food is great and reasonably priced. Dwayne is a big supporter of reef restoration and making some artificial reef structures, the fish love it and I was instantly welcomed by... More

My husband and I rented scooters and drove an hour to Paradise Cove to snorkel. We took our own equipment and it was $7/person to snorkel. We had to rent a locker which was $6. The reef had lots of fish and coral. We were rushed because we rented the scooters for only 4 hours. Make a day out of... More

This was a great spot to visit. We rented a car and drove here, so we were able to hang out for as long as we liked. It's a great set-up because there is food, drinks and lockers for your stuff while you are snorkeling. They also have rest stations around the reef which is good for novice swimmers who... More

Good place to snorkel. The people there take care of their environment and have built some infrastructure to enhance the quality of fish. We saw rays, turtles and many others. Not the great barrier reef but better than some Mexican areas. The coral is suffering greatly and the owners are trying to protect it. A nominal entrance fee, equipment is... More

Great snorkelling experience for the family. This was my son and daughters first time snorkelling and I had only snorkelled once before. We enjoyed the beautiful reef and the numerous tropical fish. My husband rented a glass bottom kayak to view the reef. Equipment can be rented for a reasonable price. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We visited... More

Amazing reef! I didn't do any snorkeling on this trip but I had an amazing time on this beautiful reed! You can rent kayaks, snorkel gear & order food there also. They also have alcoholic drinks.

Great snorkelling right off the beach, clean facilities and good food at a reasonable price. Excellent shallows for young and inexperienced, up to 30ft deep on outer side of reef. Lots of fish and rays to see. They will provide snorkelling gear if you don't have your own. Paddleboards and kayaks also available for rent. You can arrange for transportation... More

We called them directly instead of having the hotel book for us and saved $100. The hotel wanted to charge us $75 per person for a day of snorkeling. We called them directly and the nicest man picked us up for $5.00 he was a local and gave us a great tour of the island on the way to the... More
