Welcome to the Best Snorkeling in the Caribbean
Summary: Caribbean contains some of the best spots for snorkeling in the whole world, particularly in the British Virgin Islands
When you say Caribbean, you say snorkeling. Caribbean contains some of the best spots for snorkeling in the whole world. Particularly the Virgin Islands which boasts some of the most impressive wrecks, lagoons and reefs in the entire ocean.
The British Virgin Islands was full of activity since the age of pirates and seafarers. Not only men and ships frequented the area, a whole host of sea life also found the waters of this haven accommodating. Warn and clear a throughout the year, with enough sun to feed any every aquatic vegetation to culmination, this is the perfect underwater habitat. And any perfect underwater habitat makes a perfect snorkeling spot.
The islands of St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas are among the best snorkeling in the Caribbean because of the historic shipwrecks and corals that dot along its shores.
The Cane Bay wall in St. Croix is a deep underwater cliff that drops dramatically off into a foreboding depth. On a good day, you can swim out about 450 feet to see its ledge teeming with the most colorful underwater flora and fauna.
This island is considered an offshoot to its larger neighbor the St. Croix Island. Buck Island and the surrounding shore is considered a national monument with its waters home to a recorded 250 diverse marine species. Sponges, corals, crustaceans and a host of multicolored fishes greet every snorkeler.
Leinster Bay is very accessible since it directly leads to the northern shore of St. John. This calm and often uncrowded area is carpeted with sea life. For those with families or large group, Leinster Bay is the best snorkeling in the Caribbean.
While Leinster Bay caters snorkelers with a bustling marine ecosystem, Haulover Bay treats its guest with awesome underwater terrain, often deserted. The best part of this area is gazing at the beauty of stationary elements, as if this silent place was formed by some underwater artist. Ledges, walls, rocks, nooks and sand complement each other to form a peaceful sight.
Trunk Bay has a self guided 675 foot long snorkeling trail. With large underwater signs to identify coral species and aquatic life, Trunk Bay is the best snorkeling in the Caribbean for starter swimmers.
Coki Point Beach
Another standard snorkeling spot, Coki Point Beach is also among the best snorkeling in the Caribbean. Located on the north shore of St. Thomas, it entices snorkelers with its fantastically formed coral ledges near the Coral World’s underwater tower.
