Hi, we are planning on going to Brewers Bay beach on a cruise ship stop next month.
1) Are there beach chairs or umbrellas that you can rent or use?
2) How is the food/drinks at Nicoles bar, is it walk up service or do they have beach service?
3) How is the snorkeling?

There are chairs and umbrellas to rent.
Food and drink is good and reasonable. Walk up service only.
Didn't snorkle there. Can't help you there.

We just got back from Brewers Bay.
This is a spectacularly beautiful bay with awesome snorkeling to the left of the bay. We saw a number our variety of fish including Tarpon (about 4 feet in length), box fish, trigger fish, loads of colorful parrot fish, thousands of interesting little reef dwellers and various coral formations. It was impressive to see large schools of fish descend across the reef devouring whatever morsels they enjoy and moving on to the next like locusts in a field. If you aren't into snorkeling, lay back and watch the dozen or so pelicans plunge into the ocean for fish all day long. They would dive within a couple feet of a snorkeler --- neither bothering the other.
Lounge chairs can be rented for $5 and there is plenty of shade to the left of the beach (snorkling side). We didn't see any umbrellas on the beach or for rent.
Nicole's Bar offers mixed drinks and a collection of $3 bottled beer as well as a grill ($6 for a cheeseburger or $8 for shrimp and fries). Nicoles is "walk up" service. No beach service.
