snorkeling excursion in tortola


This is our second time in tortola we have done the baths and would like to do something different. We love to snorkel and would love to know which other excursion would be better.

Norman island?

If you are land based and go with a daysail more than likely they will take you to "the indians" near Norman which has excellent snorkelling & the Caves on Norman. Cistern Point at Cooper Island is also excellent. The Dogs further up the channel are very good also.

Good recommendations. We are particularly fond of the Dogs which has a healthy colorful reef. This a photo album of a day sail from Peter Island to Great Dog and the Baths:


The turtle swimming and then the colorful coral at the very end of this video were shot at the Dogs:


all the best, alashas

Or try something completely different... Try one of the hidden secrets of BVI like the Bat Cave, or Salt Island Graves. bvinewbie.com/bvi-guide/…

We sailed with Aristocat in December for a half-day trip to Norman Island.

Wished it was longer, but no choice from the cruise ship.

2 stops, the Indians, as mentioned, very good spot, lots of coral and loads of the usual reef fish seen. Gilbo and Emily were gracious hosts, providing lots of refreshments (soft and hard) and a very nice lunch.

You'll find them here on Trip Advisor, I'd recommend them without hesitation.
