Best Snorkeling

Where is the best place to snorkel? I have noticed that different excursions take you to different locations (Cades Reef, Pillars of Hercules, etc) and I was curious of what peoples opinions were for the best location to see a variety of fish, corals, etc. Thank you in advance for any replies!!

We did 2 trips - the round island Excellence Catamaran which stops at Green Island - only ok snorkelling, few small fish but we did see a turtle when sailing away! 2nd trips was the Eco kayak tour which visited Bird Island which was superb - loads of live fan & tube coral although lots of small jellyfish but no one got stung, saw a barracuda, parrotfish, angel fish and shoals of surgeon fish (I think).

We stayed at GPB and the snorkelling off the beach was ok too.

We found the snorkeling at Cades Reef to be just OK - nothing to write home about.
