snorkeling along the coast from Daytona on down the coast

can anyone recommend any good snorkeling spots along the coast from Daytona on down the coast. Preferably only a few hours from Daytona but will go down a little further.

1. Re: snorkeling along the coast from Daytona on down the coast

You have posted on a forum that is about 2 hours south of Daytona. Jupiter and further south is actually your better snorkeling areas with the Florida Keys being the best. Daytona does not really have any reef system close to shore. Further south around Melbourne Beach, Sebastian and Wabasso Beach there are some rock formations close to shore but you can only see things when the water is clear and calm. July is usually the best time for that. Most of the time the water is too rough and too murky for snorkeling in Daytona & Cocoa Beach areas. It's more of a surfing and fishing area.

The Florida Keys have really nice reefs with corals, tropical fish, etc. and is worth a visit if you have time to spend a few days there. Too far for a day trip just to snorkel.
