We visited Hell's Gate with the Eco Tour boat trip, from St Johns.
The crew were very friendly and knowledgeable.
They provided reef shoes, excellent snorkel kit and even gave snorkelling lessons for those that wanted it.

Hell's Gate is an interesting rock feature, carved by the sea and the crew help you across from the boat to get there. You definitely need their reef shoes or something of your own with a sole. Strap on waterproof sandals would be OK too.

We were guided up one side of Hell's Gate, over the top and back down the other side.
It's not something I'd do without experienced guides who know the area - but everyone on the trip had great fun.

The Eco Tour included many of the North Sound islands, a walk to a good view spot, a good lunch on board and some snorkelling stops.
A good trip with a nice crew and a bit different.

Hell's Gate is very pretty with a cave and and tunnel to walk through on your ravel across the top of the actual rock formation called Hell's Gate. The water is crystal clear like most of the water in the Caribbean, but I was hoping for better snorkeling. The water was too rough to do any good snorkeling

One more off the bucket list! Take the eco tour to get to Hell's Gate. Amazing area. Be careful. Invest in quality footwear, keen makes a great water shoe. You can't see things like this just anywhere. Do it, it's worth the effort.
