If you had one place, other than West Bay, for snorkeling...

Staying in West Bay, arrive on March 9 for a week. We have access to a rental car. If you had one recommendation, besides West Bay, for snorkeling or snorkeling tour, what would it be? What is a must do snorkel location/tour? Thanks!

You might consider Upachaya Snorkel tours. They do an excellent job. Check out their website. They're on TripAdvisor also.

Have fun

Unfortunately did not get to snorkel Sandy Bay last visit, wanted so bad to hit Spooky Channel, but found that the area surrounding Blue Channel off West End was very good. I wouldn't pass up a full-fledged snorkel tour, but rather visit as a diversion to the reef by West Bay.

For shore snorkeling, I 2nd Sandy Bay. Blue Channel off West End is good, but it's really about it on West End....West End is best for beach combing, swimming, etc.

I would also recommend a boat tour....you'll see some great stuff.
