Snorkling Recommendations?

This is our second trip to St. Kitts and we will be arriving on the Emerald Princess on April 2. We have snorkeled at Cockeshell Bay and would like to try another spot. Any recommendations?

Best snorkeling in the area is at Shitten Bay but it's only accessible by boat - book a "day sail" with Leeward Islands Charters or Blue Water Safaris to get there or through your cruise ship.

I noted from your reply to another thread that on your last visit to St. kitts you seem impressed with the snorkeling at Cockleshell - describing it as "fairly good". That surprises me as snorkeling around St. Kitts & Nevis is below average at best when compared to other islands like the USVI's, BVI's and Bonaire. Honestly, no one goes to St. kitts or Nevis for the snorkeling.

You'll find some basic snorkeling at Frigate Bay and South Friars Bay but those spots are not as good as Cockleshell and IMO Cockleshell has just so-so snorkeling.
