Any Snorkeling in the Abacos Islands, Bahamas?

by Lorinda

Has anyone snorkeled in the Abacos Islands in the Bahamas? We have a trip scheduled there for May 2019, and we love and LIVE to snorkel! We're staying on the main island, with plans to take day trips out to the smaller islands. Any advice is appreciated!

Best Snorkeling Area
by: Susan B

The best snorkeling we found was on the north side of No Name Cay, the small cay to the east of Green Turtle. It's been several years since we've were there and I think it's been designated a protected area now but it definitely had some of the best corals and fish varieties.

No Name Reef
by: Trish

No Name is still a beautiful reef. Lots of sea fans. The other side has a wild (but tame) pig colony so take small snacks - cherry tomatoes are yummy.

Snorkel Boat
by: Andrea F.

There is a snorkel boat operated out of Green Turtle Cay Resort by Brendyl, the owner of the boat. He goes out of his way to make sure you have a fabulous day of snorkeling.

Haven’t been there in several years though. Hope he is still in business. And hope the snorkeling in the Abacos is as beautiful as it was.

Where in the Abacos?
by: Atl Beardie

The Abacos are comprised of a large number of islands. If you could provide a little more information about exactly which island you'll be staying on, you might get more responses. I have snorkeled many spots on Green Turtle Cay and taken trips with Brendal's Dive Center to No Name Cay. Have also snorkeled a spot off Great Abaco that I believe was called Mermaids Cove, or something similar. Have been to Elbow and Guana Cays, but not snorkeled on them.
