We hit it right this time and had amazing luck with the wildlife - saw something like 10 turtles (in groups of 1, 2, or 3), plus some rays and, of course, tons of fish. Great beginner spot.

The # 1 place to snorkel. We saw lots of turtles, an Emerald Ray, Barracuda and of course lots of the "pretty" fish. Lots of corals to see as well.

We did a half day snorkel cruise which was really nice, but wanted to do some shoreline snorkeling. We debated between Smith's Reef and The Bight. Some reviews seemed to indicate Smith's was better so we went there. Unfortunately, at a slow time of year,...More
