The crew on the boat damaged my SPG. So overall, I would highly discourage diving with this shop if you are bringing your own scuba gear. If you are renting from them, it would be fine and average service. However, if you are someone that...More

The snorkeling was not great due to the environment. A good intro to snorkeling since the water is shallow, the current is not strong. The crew, the boat ride, the hospitality make it worth it and it was a nice afternoon on the water.

American Diving doesn't run regularly scheduled snorkeling trips until middle of May. You can rent gear from them and go in the bay. Water temps can range from 60 -70 around the time you are looking to come down.
