We saw sea turtles along Columia which was really cool! Great snorkeling here would highly recommend snorkeling this reef if giving the opportunity.

This is my favorite place I have snorkeled yet. The coral formations are spectacular. You see such a huge variety of sea life! Turtles, eagle rays, nurse sharks, reef fish, puffers, angels, barracuda... the list just goes on! It was amazing and deep, but still good visibility. I really enjoyed this reef experience. I am a big chicken, seen too many Jaws movies, but the abundance of sea life here kept me mesmerized. Well worth the money... I went 2 days in a row!

Every spot we went to was spectacular. Lots of swim throughs and colourful fish. Dive with Martin was affordable and good.

Many sea turtles, star fish... The drop off is close by so you get the abyss experience and the guides do a great job of taking photos while you snorkel.

This was last spot we went to snorkeling and I felt it was too deep to see much if snorkeling and was very wavy and kept getting knocked into other snorkelers.
