Where to find seahorses in Placencia?

Hola- I like the challenge of looking for seahorses when I snorkel. I have had some luck in Belize further north, but this is my first visit to Placencia, any recommendations?

Please note all I do is take a picture of them, not harming them in any way. I usually look for them in shallow water mangrove roots, and there seem to be a lot of mangroves in the area- but I think I need to be careful of crocs in some places?

The pilings for the public docks are usually a good spot, also under the dock/restaurant near the Vacation Paradise. The bet place to stay in Placencia is the Sea Spray (I have been taking groups to Belize for 22 years, and always stay at the Sea spray, when we're in Placencia).
