We went with Kelly on a snorkeling trip. Best recommendation to do on Analegada. Great spots he showed us.

How much was the half day tour of Horseshoe Reef with Captain Kelly. And can tourist actually catch Lobster on their own or do they need a fishing license?

I do not recall the exact price but approx 50 per person I believe. Yes you can catch lobsters if you can find one and have a glove to pull it out of the reef.

Can you walk to Horseshoe reef from the ferry landing? Or can we arrange to get a ride?
