Weather sucked so I can't give a good review. I'm sure it is nice when it is not raining. We did see fish while snorkeling.

My husband and I went on a boat tour to the blue lagoon on March 9th 2013. To our dismay, the water was greenish and so sturred up from all the boats. Not at all like the pictures portray.

There is a full day tour with several stops, that is worth doing. Lagoa Azul for me was the highlight of it. I went in low season, June, so didn´t have the crowd problem, there were a couple of boats besides us, to see something snorkeling beside small fishes I had to swim a little bit away from the group...

Beautiful little paradise, where the water is deep and crystal clear and there are many types of fish you can hand feed.

Place is nice, but crowded. I believe in you can see more underwater life if the sun is really strong.

Loved snorkelling at the Blue Lagoon and would recommend getting a boat there to do so as we saw four turtles!

Really nice LAgune between the mainland and Ilha Grande. Many boat tourists. We stopped for about 40 minutes. Not too much to see during snorkeling
