Snorkeling Around Green Turtle Cay

An off-the-beaten path locale, Green Turtle Cay has a great many attributes that draw visitors in each year.  One of them is the excellent snorkeling which can be done both right from shore, and even better, if you have access to a boat. 

To snorkel the waters of Green Turtle Cay, simple find a beach and swim out a bit.  Chances are, you'll encounter a shallow coral bed with brightly colored fish swimming about.  The east coast, heading north is where you'll have the best luck.  These coral systems are some of the healthiest to be found in the region thanks to the fact that they are largely unexplored.  What an amazing opportunity to potentially be the first to see an amazing section of reef in the Bahamas!
