Snorkeling in St. Thomas

Snorkeling in St. Thomas

 
The best snorkeling in St. Thomas can be found at Coki Beach. Snorkeling is a fun and safe activity that can be done during the day or at night. Guests of the Ritz Carlton Club St. Thomas have many snorkeling options close by, like Coki Beach, Secret Harbour, and Sapphire Beach. Snorkeling conditions are great on the island thanks to the calm waters, great visibility, and constant warm temperatures of 79 to 83 degrees. Coki Beach is one St. Thomas beach that has snorkeling comparable to St. John's National Park. Snorkelers can stand chest deep and play with lots of fish. There are also deeper reefs farther off shore for more experienced snorkelers and divers.
 
Coki Beach Dive Club was voted the Best Dive Shop in the Virgin Islands by Virgin Island Daily News readers. They are a PADI 5 Star Resort Facility that provides convenient and safe water activities. They offer snorkeling as well as scuba diving for all levels of experience. Some other fun activities you can do with your loved ones are night diving or Bubble Maker, an activity that introduces kids to breathing underwater. Coki Beach Dive Club is located at the entrance to Coral World adjacent to Coki Beach.
 
Another beach to check out is Secret Harbour, which many say is the best snorkeling on the East End. It is more secluded than Coki Beach, less crowded, and without vendors. Tourists have reported seeing a variety of marine life, such as 300 pound sea turtles, porcupine puffers, parrot and lion fish and a multitude of other colorful fish, spotted and manta rays. There is an on site dive shop where you can rent snorkeling equipment.
 
Sapphire Beach, also on the East End, is another popular snorkeling destination spot. The deep blue waters and reef very close to the beach make excellent snorkeling conditions. You can find sting rays, conch shells with slugs still in them, colorful fish and turtles.
