Snorkeling St. John

Snorkeling the waters of St. John, Virgin Islands is for me--and for many others--one of the most rewarding and fun things to do on St. John. The water is warm and tranquil. It's normally easy to get in and out of the water. You move effortlessly, unencumbered by gravity, and experience the wonderful and colorful world of the coral reefs, sea grass beds and mangrove lagoons that surround St. John in the magnificent Virgin Islands.

Knowing correct snorkeling techniques, understanding the St John's undersea environment and being able to identify and know about what you will see in this strange new world will greatly enhance your enjoyment of the sport, as well as alerting you any possible safety or environmental concerns.

For this reason, that in addition to your mask fins and snorkel you bring with you a knowledge of what you will be looking at when you enter the beautiful underwater world of the Virgin Islands.
