Caneel Bay snorkeling - fun and relax for you and your family
Caneel Bay offers some of the most extraordinary snorkeling found in the Caribbean from the launch point of its seven pristine, powder-white beaches. Guests are invited to explore on their own or with a private snorkeling session led by the resident "Snorkologist." Guests are sure to be amazed by the vast array of fish found off of Caneel Bay's coast including: doctor fish, parrot fish, porcupine fish, angel fish, yellowtail snapper and trigger fish. They might even be fortunate enough to spot a school of squid or an octopus. For the more adventurous types, there is a nearby underwater snorkeling trail at renowned Trunk Bay, a short drive from the resort. Aside from the 11 tennis courts, built into a terraced hillside, a compact fitness center, and a small pool near the courts, most action takes place on the coral formations a hundred yards from the waterline. Use of snorkel gear-plus a generous selection of sailboards, kayaks, and small sailboats-is complimentary. Snorkeling requires no special training, only the ability to swim and to breathe through the snorkel. However, it is considered advisable that one get some instruction from a tour guide, dive shop, or equipment rental shop, any of which often can be found around popular snorkeling locations. Instruction generally covers equipment usage, basic safety, what to look for, and what to look out for, including how not to damage fragile organisms such as coral. As with scuba diving, it is always recommended that one not snorkel alone, but rather with a "buddy," a guide, or a tour group. The mask and snorkel are similar to those used in scuba diving, but since they are not subjected to the pressures of deep water, they can be more lightweight and comfortable. Swimfins used in snorkeling are usually longer than those used in diving. Experienced snorkelers often start to investigate amateur free-diving, which should be preceded by at least some training from a dive instructor or experienced free-diver. A diversity of marine life can be found in the waters surrounding the resort. Parrotfish, angelfish, and damselfish can be seen swimming around coral, bright sea fans, or spiny sea urchins. Viewers may also spot a barracuda, sea turtle, or reef squid.
