Snorkeling as good as they say?

We are trying to decide on our next vacation....after Costa Rica. Belize sounds pretty good right now because it's similar to Costa Rica and it has snorkeling to offer...

How good is the snorkeling in the Grand Cayman? Can we go by ourselves? Is there enough shore snorkeling for those who are not expert swimmers?

I assume the Grand Cayman is $$$? We are budgeting $2500 for the entire one week trip in the summer....

I have been to Ambergris Caye Belize and there is very limited off shore snorkeling. The boat traffic between the reefs and the docks require that you stay close to the dock or paddle all the way out to the reef in a Kayak. No way would you want to be in-between due to all the boats..

If you follow Testudo's guide exactly you will see a large variety of fish and beautiful coral. Make a copy of his snorkel guide and take it with you, we loved having it with us. Our favorite places were the Coral gardens at Rum Point, Barrier Reef at Rum Point and Connelly's Cove and there were many other's on the list that are also wonderful. Have fun!

Snorkel-Mart - I see you are new to trip advisor so just to let you know self-promotion is not allowed.
