Shore snorkeling?

Recommended Posts

Are there any good snorkel beaches where I could bring my own snorkel equipment and snorkel from shore?

Way best to take a catamaran excursion which includes snorkeling.  :classic_wink:

 

Consider the beach off Port Charles Marina.

Admission to the Boatyard and some of the other beach clubs on Carlilse Bay includes a boat trip out to snorkel over a ship wreck (lots of fish), and swim with the turtles.

You can snorkel from shore at Carlisle bay.  We did it.  We walked to the beach from the ship.  It took about 25 minutes.

At the beach, we walked beyond the Boatyard and rented 2 chairs and an umbrella from one of the many vendors.  We then just snorkeled from shore. but you have to go out quite a ways to see anything, and it is mostly just the turtles that you see.  We just swam out to where the boats were all anchored and joined right in with the turtles.  It looks relatively far, but takes 10-15 minutes to get out there.  The good news is - the ocean water makes you very buoyant,  so it is easy to stop and rest if you need to.  I would not hesitate to do it again.  Very low cost option for a day at the beach.
