Full description
Benefit from pickup at your hotel or the cruise ship terminal, and then head to an impressive snorkeling site with beautiful coral formations. Lie still in the calm waters or drift in the warm waves of the Caribbean Sea.

Continue to the legendary Tugboat dive site to see the mostly intact remains of the 30-foot wreck of a tugboat siting upright in 17 feet of water. After three decades beneath the waves, the skeletal hull is now encrusted with spectacular corals, where many tropical fish come to swim.
