St. Croix Snorkeling Sites

Here are a couple of the best snorkeling sites on St. Croix. There are just way too many for us to list them all! Go out an explore and ask the locals...they won't bite!

Cane Bay: One of the island's best diving and snorkeling sites is off this beautiful north-shore beach. On most days, you can swim out a few hundred feet to see the Cane Bay Wall, which drops off dramatically from 40 feet of water to over 3000 feet deep! Multicolored fish, sea turtles and other sea life including Elkhorn, brain coral, and sea fans flourish here.

Buck Island: This little island, whose land and offshore waters are designated as a national monument, lies 1.5 miles off the north coast of St. Croix. More than 250 recorded species of fish swim through its reef system. A variety of sponges, corals, and crustaceans also inhabit the area. Click here for more Buck Island Information

Jack's & Isaac's Bays - On the southeast tip of St. Croix, these two bays are remote but well worth the hike it takes to get there. Part of the St. Croix East End Marine Park, these two pristine bays have fabulous beaches and some of the best snorkeling on the island.

West End Beaches - There are numerous spots along the western coast of the island, on either side of Frederiksted, that offer calm waters and good snorkeling.
