Is there anywhere near Atlantis to snorkel on our own.

Hi there, I was thinking about bringing our own snorkel gear and just going on our own. Is that possible? Where should we go? With a family of 5 I am trying to economise. Thanks

They will rent snorkel equip. at Atlantis, but it's pricey. Packing a mask and snorkel and vest is pretty easy, but packing the fins, a nightmare.

Snorkelling off the beach isn't that great. You really have to snorkel a reef (from a boat) to see anything decent. However, some people have reported doing some 'satisfactory' snorkelling off Paradise Beach (just west) and a few have snorkeled in the lagoon, but claim that it is murky. The best snorkel spot on the entire Paradise Island beachfront is at the eastern end of cabbage beach, just before the golf course, where there is a small outcropping. It is the better part of a mile walk down the beach, but a nice walk.

Stuart Cove offers an excellent 1/2 day snorkel adventure for around $55 bucks. They are very child friendly, safe, and they pick up and drop off, and have all the equipment.
