We went snorkeling here in December and could see several types of fish. The rocks are visible during low tide. We went during high tide and they were completely submerged. Many barracuda were nearby here.

We went a snorkel trip to Christ of the Deep and Grecian Rocks. Christ of the Deep is in deeper water and Grecian Rocks is a shallow location. Both sites have plenty of fish and beautiful Coral Reefs.

Visited here twice with Pennekamp park. Loved every minute of it. Would be great if you had a boat of your own and knew how to get there. Wonderful snorkel with eagle rays and other fish.
