The Baths_3 

The Baths

This world-famous geological wonder of huge boulders and caverns provides amazing exploring, snorkeling, and breathtaking scenery. Whether you land at Devil's Bay Beach and find your way through the cave maze to get to the Top of The Baths or vice versa, exploring the natural caves and grottoes formed by the jumbled stacking of these monolithic rocks is great fun. You'll also find terrific snorkeling among the grottoes on the seaside of The Baths and in the crystal-clear pools.

Lunch is served aboard the excursion boat.

Anagada_1 

Anegada

Anegada is a flat coral and limestone atoll ringed by beautiful white sand beaches and great snorkeling just off Horseshoe Reef. More than 300 boats have wrecked along the island's coast and now provide the perfect foundation for coral growth and fish hideouts. Lunch is served at a quaint fisherman's restaurant on the island.

Norman Island_2 

Norman Island

Enjoy fantastic reef and cave snorkeling on the island that provided the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island. Treasure may have been hidden in these caves long ago, but today the colorful jewels you'll find are the schools of fish that gather in the deep water outside the caves and the coral growths along the rock walls. Lunch is served aboard the excursion boat. The trip is not complete without a stop at the world famous Willy T!

Great Dog Island_2

Snorkeling Excursion: The Coral Gardens at Great Dog Island

Recognized as a national park and bird sanctuary, the Coral Gardens off Great Dog Island offer coral in amazing formations, some up to eight feet tall. The area also attracts a variety of fish, including pufferfish. Lunch is served on board the excursion boat.
