Snorkeling Leinster

I love Waterlemon, but have only snorkeled from the beach to the right down and around the Cay, so when you snorkel Leinster Bay where do you go in?? At the beach or somewhere else?? Thanks!

We usually walk out the trail past the beach and get in from the rocky shore on the right side if only because it's a shorter swim to the cay (and, more important, a shorter swim back!), but there's nothing to stop you from shooting in right off the beach into the sandy/seagrass area and not even going out to the cay - turtles and rays often abundant. Boaters are often too crowded in there, so you might have to watch out. But perhaps I misunderstand your question. We have seen people in the water at various points while walking the trail to the beach, but have never actually ventured in at any of these spots. Sorry if this does not shed any useful additional light

You walk down the trail that starts at the parking lot and continues about a 1/4 mile with rocky beach on your left. Then when you get to an actual sand beach you can set up and go from there or continue on the trail that continues to the point adjacent to the Island. The latter is a shorter swim out to the Island.

Once at the Island most recommend that you circle counter clockwise.

There's great snorkeling all along the path out to Waterlemon, starting about 100 yards past the parking lot. You'll see coral surveys going on through that stretch, don't disturb the markers!

Cheers, RickG
