Is this the best place for snorkeling out of our ports (Grenada, St Lucia, Antigua, St Thomas) I heard Buck Island is nice but....
with a family of 5, the snorkel and transportation will run almost $600.00! Looking for the best experience our money can buy.

Buck Island is absolutely beautiful! I would say one of the best in your list above. For that kind of money, you can rent your own sailboat in St. Croix. We did it for much less than that for 2 families with 1 kid each! Plus it included lunch, soft drinks and even adult beverages!

You have to do your homework though. Start here:

Good luck!
