Best diving/snorkelling?

Am planning a trip to the out islands, but am not sure which to choose. I love to snorkel, but do not dive. My husband and 16 year old are newly certified divers. We'd like an island that accomodates both. Any recommendations? Thanks!

We wnet to Abaco Beach resort. The reefs come up the surface with 20ft walls. We rented a boat for the week and went as we pleased after a day with a guide for orientation. The islands off the east coast of Avbaco create a protected bay 50miles long and 5-10 miles wide. Nice place to boat. The seaward side of the islands have reefs that offer many choices to go. We saw "tame" baracuda. WOW

Thanks waverunner. I was leaning toward the abacos, but had not ruled out the exumas.I think we'll do the Abacos, since they also seem to offer a bit more in the way of restaurants and sightseeing.
