“bring underwater camera”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We kayaked out and snorkeled for hours. Awesome fish, sea turtle, sting ray, coral, sea cucumber and more. The tour guide was great. The water is so crystal clear that you just cant get used to it. Very warm water.

“Awesome Snorkeling”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

You need to hire a boat to visit this snorkeling haven as it's a 1-mile swim to reach it from the beach (and 1-mile to return). The water shimmers with clarity so you can view all sorts of coral and tropical fish. Go at mid tide and head to the eastern end of the little island near the beach area. At low tide the rocks emerge from the water and you don't have enough water to keep you above the coral.

“Jet Ski destination Peterson Cay”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

My daughter and I did the jet ski tour to Peterson Cay. We didn't stay long on the Cay, but it was such an amazing little ecosystem of coral, fish, and shells. We got to snorkel there for about 15 minutes. A definite highlight of our trip.

“Gorgeous Reef to snorkel around at high tide....”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

This island and Reef were wonderful but we went on a choppy windy (15 - 20 knots) day and as the tide was going out. The only thing that kept the experience from being excellent was the effort to Kayak over there and the difficulty snorkeling around the reef at low tide with waves and chop.
