Snorkeling the waters of St. John, Virgin Islands is for
me and I expect for most others, one of the most rewarding
and fun things to do on St. John. The water is warm and
tranquil. It's normally easy to get in and out of the water.
You move effortlessly, unencumbered by gravity, and experience
the wonderful and colorful world of the coral reefs, sea
grass beds and mangrove lagoons that surround St. John in
the magnificent Virgin Islands.
Having knowledge about this undersea environment and being
able to identify and have an understanding of what you see
in this strange new world will greatly enhance your enjoyment
of the sport, as well as alerting you any possible safety
or environmental concerns.
For this reason, that in addition to your
mask fins and snorkel you bring with you a knowledge of
what you will be looking at when you enter the beautiful
underwater world of the Virgin Islands.
