Crystal clear water

Beautiful beach! It is tiny, but the water is so clear w visible reefs below. We visited here on a jet ski tour. Our visit was short, but long enough for how small this cay is.

Semi-challenging kayak trip with my wife (anyone can do it) to this small cay over the most pristine water you will ever see. Then we donned our snorkel gear and swam the reef that encircles the entire island. Tell your guide to take you out to the big reef to see bigger fish and some friendly sharks (if your lucky,...

I have visited Peterson Cay twice and it is always a great day. You can swim and snorkel out to the reef, have lunch and drinks. A great day, not to be missed!!!

It od course depends on what you're looking for - but Peterson Cay is a wonderful small island with a small beach that is very pretty to visit. There were interesting shells aplenty, nesting birds (we may have been there at an opportunistic time of course), and a small pretty beach. If you drop anchor more than 10 yards from... More

I really like snorkeling to see coral and sea life. There really wasn't that much to see. It was fun just swimming off the Kat and testing how far I could swim so early in the seaon.

From all the reviews we read before hand this was the best place for snorkeling so it was a must on our to do list. We hired a boat to take us there as this was our 2nd snorkeling event for this trip. I don't know if we didn't time it right or what but fish were far and few... More

We visited this beautiful island by kayak, and we were amazed by its beauty instantly! With warm, crystal clear water, you can actually see plenty of fish and vegetation in the water without even donning a mask. However, the true magic of this place is really in the snorkeling adventures that it affords. It is easy to snorkel around the... More
