the reef itself is not very colorful, most likely due to climate change and environmental pressures. there were many pretty fish which was encouraging to see. i was glad to see the reef protected by ropes so people don't accidentally step on it

Snorkeling at Coral Gardens was decent, but much better at Smiths Reef. Saw eagle rays, turtles and even a 4 ft shark at Smiths

We arrived at 9am today so my husband and boys could explore the reef, we ended up staying the full day. The chair rental fee from the beach attendant was totally reasonable for two chairs and an umbrella. This provided a nice bit of shade...More

We had our own equipment but there are a few rental places on the island. We snorkelled late morning and had the beach to ourselves. Grab a map at the airport.

Can you rent snorkel equipment there or must take our own?
