Normally you’d think there’s not much to see snorkeling around a seagrass bed and algal plain in the middle of a St. John bay. But if you linger around for a while, you might be surprised. Yesterday in the course of less than a half hour I encountered two big turtles, one with a remora on its back, a fairly large barracuda, conchs, starfish, sea urchins, and a variety of little fish.
