There is a great little tiki bar at the Marina and you can also buy gas there if you have a rental vehicle. Nice clean bathrooms and also showers you can use. Everyone was very friendly.

We could only go snorkeling because my husband isn't PADI certified yet (although you can get certified while you're down there) but it was still beautiful. We floated around with little effort because of the current and saw so many amazing creatures. No wet suit necessary, the water is perfect all yearlong. If you're trying to decide between diving and... More

The kayaks were not comfortable and not cleaned...ever! There were no amenities...they couldn't make change.. I felt like I was intruding on someone's home. Not very professional at all. The river was beautiful though!

We dove there 3 times and saw everything you would love to see on a reef - sharks, eels, rays, turtles and amazing tropical fish.

Some of the most colorful coral I have ever seen. Glovers is great for both diving and snorkeling. An hour and a half trip from Hopkins.

From Nurse Sharks, Loggerhead Turtles, Caribbean Sting Rays, Morray eels, Eagle Rays, Grouper, Black tip reef sharks, plenty of lobster, Lion fish, Bat fish, Angel Fish,... More

My wide and I did a 3-tank dive at Glover's with Hopkins Underwater Adventure. The dives were one of the highlights of our vacation with 100+ feet visibility. As total freshmen, we saw nurse sharks, eagle rays, sting rays, loggerhead turtles barracudas and marvelous corals. The trip to the reef was a bit long and choppy, in particular for children....

We dove Glover’s Reef Atoll area while staying with a resort out of Hopkins. It was a pleasant 1.5 hour boat ride over pretty smooth water (thanks to the reef); which was nothing for the 100-200ft visibility (I have boated 3+ hours for a lot less!). There are a bunch of little islands dotted about that you can stop at... More

Snorkeling here was the highlight of our trip. It was like swimming thru the best aquarium. Breathtakingly beautiful.
