You have to swim out to snorkel unescorted. They just point the way! My granddaughter had never snorkeled before so she buddied up with another lady. Didn't see much because she was afraid to go around the large rocks into the deeper water.

Great snorkeling! Tons of fish. Bring Dog food to feed the Yellow tails. They will take it right out of your hands.

Treasure Reef was named for treasure that was found there in the 1960s. I have found my own treasure there in the form of the warm crystal waters, beautiful coral, and colorful fish. The shallow depths make it a good place for snorkeling or for the inexperienced diver. I have been diving there on two vacations, and both were great.... More

Our snorkeling tour that was booked through the marina was great. Lots of fun and the guides were very helpful. The reef that they take you to is gorgeous.

It is hard to find living coral at shallow depth in the US any more. At this reef even a snorkeler can see many colorful fish, corals and sponges.

Not that great for snorkeling, mostly sand and your typical fish. Areas got very shallow and a member in my party got scraped by coral. Appears to still need more recovery time from hurricanes.

You can snorkel from 11:00-4:00 unlimited for $35.00. Small boat ferries you to catamaran for snorkeling and you can go back to shore for lunch and return and snorkel some more.
