Snorkeling

Staying at IB Grand in July. Want to do some snorkeling. Where is the best reefs to snorkel and does the dive shop at the hotel have good excursions to book? If so does anyone know the rates for snorkeling excursions? How is the snorkeling off the beach at the Grand?

Dive shop does have excursions. Cheaper if you book before your visit but you can book onsite as well. It think its around $50/pp, and they leave 2x per day and its a short boat ride. We unfortunatly did not get to do this due to the weater during our visit. But I heard pretty good thinks about it, and its nice that it is a short trip. Your snorkle for about 1 hour.

You can also use snorkle gear for 1 hour a day from the resort for free. We saw many people using it. Not great snorkling but there are rocks your can snorkle around. Due to the rain during our visit I did not find the water very clear.
