Snorkeling, Kayak, Fishing & Boat Excursions

St. John offers some of the best snorkeling in the entire caribbean, if not the world. Clear waters, beautiful fish, many locations and relatively unspoiled – St John offers snorkeling opportunities that other islands can only hope for. Visitors to St. John can find many locations to snorkel directly from the beach – including an underwater trail in Trunk Bay (complete with marked signs) but some prefer to rent a private charter or go on a group tour to visit more exotic locals.
