The Best Snorkelling Locations in the Caribbean

By HarryFriday 06th December 2013

snorkling Snorkelling is easy to do and doesn’t require training, making it a great activity for your whole family. The clear waters and summer sun of the Caribbean Sea make it one of the best places to go snorkelling; an enchanting underwater world of wonder waiting to be explored by you. So, take some time away from the busy commotion of life on land and enjoy the calm of the waves, as you float amongst the exotic fish, vivid coral and the glimmering blue ocean.

Grand Cayman

Grand Cayman is the largest of the three Cayman Islands, renowned for its beautiful coral reefs, underwater sea walls and undisturbed shipwrecks. With so much to explore underwater, it’s no surprise that it’s a popular snorkelling destination. Grand Cayman is also home to Stingray City, an area of shallow waters in the North Sound where many stingrays collectively gather. You can swim with these remarkable fish and even stroke them as you watch them interact underwater.

St. Kitts

The Caribbean island of St. Kitts is full of great snorkelling spots; from just under the surface of the sea you’ll be able to see up to 60-100 feet down. As you float on the shallow water, you will see the fluttering angelfish, snappers and damsels whiz by. In the sea surrounding St Kitts you’ll also be able swim amid sea turtles, watching them glide along the seabed.

Mosquito Island

Mosquito Island, also known as Moskito Island, is located in the North Sound of the US Virgin Islands, just off the coast of Virgin Gorda. The 120 acre island is surrounded by the translucent Caribbean Sea, and is a favourite amongst sailors, divers and snorkelers. You can find up to 400 different types of fish in the shallow waters of Mosquito Island, making it a perfect place for exploring the Caribbean’s multi-coloured marine life – so don’t forget your underwater camera!

Dominican Republic

Dominican Republic has 1000 miles of unspoiled beaches on offer, which are perfect for sunbathing and resting after a day of snorkeling. It is a snorkeling and diving paradise, offering a beautiful coral reef, mysterious caves, shipwrecks, and shoals of exotic shimmering fish. For many visitors, Saona Island is a favourite snorkelling location in Dominican Republic. A government protected nature reserve; Saona Island is a place of beautiful wildlife both in water and on land. You can spend your morning snorkelling over the shoals of colourful fish, and explore the masses of orange starfish native to Saona.
