St. John Snorkels: Seagrass Creatures

Snorkeling the St. John Seagrass

Although most snorkelers head immediately out to the reef, there’s really a lot of cool stuff to be seen right off the beach in a sand and seagrass environment.

St. John Snorkeling: Leinster Bay Snorkel

The beach at Leinster Bay can only be reached by hiking from Annaberg or by boat. Although most snorkelers make their way to the colorful reef surrounding Waterlemon Cay, there are things to see right off the beach. The sea floor is mainly seagrass and sand. The following photos show were taken just off the beach in the late afternoon yesterday.

St. John Snorkeling Images: Caribbean Reef Squid

My friend, Paul, and I were snorkeling, looking for some conch over a turtle grass bed, when I noticed several schools of squid in the area. I was able to capture a fairly good photo, but I think that I approached them too aggressively and they would move away rapidly. Next time, I’ll try to be really slow and non threatening and see if I can get a good steady close up shot.

By the way, my squid research tells me that the Caribbean reef squid pictured above are the squid commonly encountered over Caribbean reefs.
