We went with DC Explorers, they dropped us off way south of the Lighthouse and we snorkeled along on edge to the lighthouse. Lots of fish and loved snorkeling the distance rather than in a circle around a reef. Had a perfect day for it,...More

You basically float with the current and get to see all kinds of fish. I paid about $25 which wasn't too bad. Make sure you know what kind of tour you're getting yourself into. I took just enough cash to pay for the trip and...More

This is worth your time! We went twice while staying on the island. We saw hundreds of fish, many in large schools hidden in the beautiful and healthy coral. There were huge angelfish, parrotfish, barracuda, and colorful damselfish, pufferfish, and Sargent majors....just to name a...More

This is a drift snorkel. They drop you off at one end of the rocks and reef area. The boat floats along nearby. We went early in the morning while it was calm and not crowded. The water is 8-12 feet deep. We saw a...More
