Leeward Islands Explorer: Top 3 Snorkeling Spots

Incredible tropical fish, colorful coral reefs, and year-round warm waters make the Caribbean one of the most desirable places to snorkel in the world. When SeaDream II drops anchor in Caribbean hideaways, we invite you to enjoy snorkeling directly from the yacht’s Marina. Should you choose to tender ashore, you’ll find no shortage of incredible beaches, coves, and lagoons. 




Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands 

The Virgin Gorda boasts enough dramatic shallow-water snorkeling spots to keep avid adventurers active for days. Located on the southwest coast of Virgin Gorda sits the Baths where underwater reefs, rock life, and tropical fish abound. The Dogs, a small group of uninhabited islands just of the West Shore of the Virgin Gorda is another top pick—as are the many bays, such as Savannah Bay, that the island has also set up as self-guided snorkeling trails. On our specially curated Yachting Land Adventure, open-air safari wagons will take you and your fellow SeaDreamers on a short twenty-minute ride through the village of Spanish Town to snorkel at The Baths. 


Norman Island, British Virgin Islands

Simply put, Norman Island is vintage Caribbean paradise It is small, secluded, privately owned, uninhabited except for wild goats, and accessible only by yacht or helicopter. On Norman's north shore is the sheltered bay known as the Bight, one of the greatest natural anchorages in region, and our top spot in the British Virgin Islands for snorkeling. Discover the legendary Caves here, steeped in pirate history and immortalized in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, on our enchanting Yachting Land Adventure


St. Barths, French West Indies 

With its abundant secluded shores, St. Barths provides the idyllic snorkeling. Thanks to its four shipwrecks and protected marina of underwater reefs and canyons, there is much to explore and a variety of underwater life to encounter here, most notably angelfish, parrotfish, and stingrays. On our snorkeling Yachting Land Adventure: keep an eye out for green sea turtles, an endangered but relatively abundant species in these waters.
