snorkeling trip

We will be staying in Punta Barco/Coronado area. We would like to have one day snorkeling trip. What would be the best place to go? How to get there?

Unfortunately there's no great places for snorkeling off that part of the coast.

Three options would be:

Take the ferry to Taboga - there's a few places off the island for okay snorkeling - not what I would class as great.

Head to Portobel/Isla Grande - with the new highway it would take you about 2-1/2 hours from Coronado so it would mean a long day. There are small boats available there that can take you out to some decent reef areas.

Fly to Contadora for the day - bit expensive but decent snorkeling off Contadora Island - would need to check flight schedules to see if this is feasible or not as not all days will the flights work out.
