Snorkeling Around Nevis

Snorkeling Sites

If you're ready to see what's below the surface you might want to visit Booby Shoals. Though it is a popular dive site, the snorkeling here is primo as well. The reefs shape into a semi-circle and are home to such sea life as hawksbill turtles, stingrays, horse-eyed jacks, and even nurse sharks. This snorkeling site is situated in northern Nevis.

Pinney's Beach is another place you might enjoy. A shallow reef protects this beach, offering some great snorkeling in a calm area. Just a few feet bellow the surface is a world of black coral, wire coral, stingrays, barracuda, parrot fish, grunts, tangs, damselfish, lobsters, arrow crabs, and more.
