Visitors staying on Great Exuma will be delighted to know that when they plan a snorkeling excursion here, they'll not only be able to visit sites surrounding this island, but several others in the Exumas Islands as well.  

Surrounding this chain are crystal clear waters that allow for excellent viewing of the mysterious world that lies beneath the surface of the sea. What can be more peaceful than seeing these sitess through the filtered lens of the stunning blue hues of waters that are known for visibility of upwards of 100 feet deep?  In this area of the Bahamas, there are some of the thickest, healthiest shallow reefs as well as shallow blue holes.  

It is easy to plan a trip, simply because many of the island's accommodations offer excursions as part of your stay with them.  And if your hotel doesn't offer this service, they will likely be able to direct you to a local operator who does.
