Is there any point in going to Marco Island for snorkeling. I'm also looking for uncrowded beaches. Thanks!
I have done and seen fish, but it's bland.
There's a dive shop on Marco, but they go a long way out into relatively deep water
I've not been in the ocean that far north I'm afraid.
Most of my snorkelling in FL has been in the Keys, which are hard to beat. I've been SCUBA certified for a few years now so now tend to dive rather than snorkel - the only reason I snorkelled at Marco was because the dive boat trip got cancelled owing to the weather and since I had my gear with me I decided to snorkel.
A quick search on Google suggests there is snorkelling at Gasparilla - further searches should show details. There's a great dive shop in Naples (link below) those guys may be able to help if you're passing by them.
