Whether you’re planning an island getaway or have already arrived in St. Thomas or St. John, booking a snorkeling adventure is a must while you’re in the Caribbean! The memories you’ll make are sure to last a lifetime. For example, one of our recent guests had the opportunity to swim alongside a spotted eagle ray. As the guest twirled while swimming through the water, the ray circled around the swimmer. They were playing together in a magical, unforgettable moment!
This is just a glimpse into the type of experience you could encounter when you book one of Ocean Surfari – Reef Snorkel Excursions’ snorkeling tours. And if that’s not enough, here’s a few more reasons why you should make your reservation:
- The Caribbean’s turquoise blue water is warm and clear. There’s great weather and stunning visibility in the summer!
- Our vessel, the Reef Surfari catamaran, is a spacious boat with room for up to 49 people to board. Passengers can safely spread out during boat tours and while enjoying a snorkeling excursion.
- Covid-19 safety measures are always in practice as per standard procedures. We always sanitize snorkel gear with a bleach water solution to ensure safety. For added peace of mind, new mouth pieces, goggles and masks are for sale at our Ocean Surfari retail shop.
If you would like to use your own instead of our rental gear, that is perfectly okay, as well.
Here are just a few of the places we are currently exploring during snorkeling tours:
- Majo Bay – This is a popular national park near St. John – It is one of the best spots to consistently find sea turtles, rays, starfish, cushion stars, and remora (sucker fish). It is known for clear, calm waters. Its shallow waters make for a great beginner’s snorkeling spot in the Caribbean.
- Waterlemon Cay – This is located in Leinster Bay, St. John. It is a beautiful reef that offers colorful tropical fish and coral. Visitors can often see yellow tail snappers, jacks, groupers, barracudas, mackerel, tarpon, and spotted eagle rays. A lucky few may spot an octopus and/or eel. There are also Caribbean spiny lobsters and nurse sharks.
- Lovango Cay – Situated just off St. John, the calm waters around this private, eco-friendly island are home to a variety of tropical fish and nurse sharks.
- Mingo Cay – A short boat ride from Cruz Bay, this tiny island features a well developed coral canyon just off its western side.
