snorkeling?

we are considering staying at Galley Bay but wonder whether there is any snorkeling off the beach or do we have to go somewhere else in a boat or taxi??

I went in antigua 6/22/214. We were on boat and they took us somewhere beautiful place to snorkel. The boat comes to your hotel beach area to take you for snorkeling. Also they give you drinks and some good a$$ banana bread on boat after u snorkel then there is a place it's called dark wood beach they will stop there to feed you and they have one game you can play with them on beach after you eat lunch. I had great time. Enjoy it get your money change when you get to air port. It's in side the air port bc they are tricky with money exchanging. $1 it's 2.80 ec in airport but out of airport it's 2.60 so Everytime you spend 100 dollar u will lose 10 dollar lol so also take black papper if u r planing to cook there in your hotel room. We bought our black papper for 10 dollar but it's a 1 dollar some here in America. I though that was crazy :)

There's no real snorkelling directly off the beach at Galley Bay, but, depending on the time of year, there can be some quite nice spots just next door at Hawksbill.

Otherwise, you need to either take a boat trip - all the day cruises include snorkelling stops, take a dedicated snorkelling boat, or perhaps WCT for a self-drive option that's lots of fun, or head for one of the beaches with some off-beach options. These are few and far between, but Long Bay and Galleon are perhaps the best of them.
