Snorkeling has its limitations compared to SCUBA. You can’t spend time down deep, so you might feel limited in your discoveries, but in the shallow waters of the Bahamas, that just isn’t the case.
Dark Angel, our 39′ Fortuna Island Spirit 401 catamaran, doesn’t have as much room for expensive dive gear as some bigger boats, and our wallets match. We may not have expensive SCUBA gear, but we have snorkels and fins, and we use them. A lot. We especially like to go to the places most tourists overlook.
Some of our favorite places, including Bimini, Conception Island, and the Exumas island chain in the Bahamas, have beautiful snorkeling areas that are teeming with underwater life and beauty.
If you’re looking for rays, sharks, turtles, parrotfish, lionfish, angelfish, stunning coral, or even man-made attractions, there are some amazing places to snorkel in the Exumas.
