You cannot actually go to far on Peterson Cay it is protected. But the snorkelling infront of the island is spectacular!!

Just a few minutes off of Peterson Cay is an amazing and beautiful snorkelling reef where the tours will probably take you. Be sure to watch the weather and go on a day when it is not "chopy".

What a wonderful attraction Ideal for snorkelling and swimming in the most beautiful green/blue/turquoise waters imaginable. Remember to take your snorkelling gear with you. Accessible by boat. There are boat and catamaran tours available, so shop around for prices.

We stopped on the beach for 15 minutes. Not much to do other than take a few photos. The hurricane damaged much of the vegetation. Still very pretty. Dive boat then takes you out to snorkel or dive. Well worth the time and $$ spent.

This is a pretty beach! We came on a jetski tour (it left the hotel about 2:45pm) and it was low tide. Not sure if there was actually a reef - we tried to snorkel but there was a lot of sand and sea weed.

Nice location for snorkeling..but, this place will nickel and dime you. They charge for chairs,umbrellas and lockers. Splurge and pay the $5.5 to be taken by boat to the reef so you can actually swim around and enjoy it.

Beautiful and unique location. Snorkeling was good we saw Rays and skittish turtles however the reef and marine life was sparse compared to other Caribbean locations.
