Princess Cay-Snorkeling

Recommended Posts

What is the snorkeling like at Princess Cay?  On your own, HMC does not have much to see,  Coco Cay as OK, but I notice beaches on the map for Princess that are marked snorkeling- how good are they?  We will be there early December.

When you get off of the tender go to the left.   There are some rocks in the water, and a covered pier like structure with a red roof that goes out into the water.  Around this area there is OK snorkeling, but it is usually crowded.   People up on the pier feed the fish.   If you keep swimming along the shore, it gets less crowded, and you will still have some marine life.  The snorkeling at Princess Cays is better than HMC in my opinion, but it is not great.  I have also done the snorkeling excursion through Princess, don't waste your money.  We saw more of a variety of fish snorkeling from shore on our own.

We used to snorkel off the shore at Princess Cay.  It was OK but not great, and now things have changed and not as good IMO.    This is probably frowned upon, but sometimes we would take a box of cereal from the buffet, put it in a ziplock bag, and attract fish by releasing a little at a time.  They nibbled at your fingers and it was fun.
