Does anyone have any information to share about snorkeling Guadeloupe? Is there off the beach snorkeling? Where are the best places?

Great Scenery, OK Snorkeling
by: Sandy Beach

We spent a week visiting Guadeloupe and were a little disappointed in conditions. We shore snorkeled Plage Leroux on Basse-Terre and St Anne on Grande-Terre, and mostly saw parrotfish, tang, and other Caribbean staples, and unhealthy coral.

We rented a kayak at the Cousteau Reserve to go out to the (very) nearby islands, and again saw less than we’d hoped.

We also did a day-long excursion to Petit-Terre, an uninhabited, protected island that was fun and would have been better if we’d done some homework on exactly where to snorkel.

Overall, though, we loved Guadeloupe, especially the lush, mountainous Basse-Terre, and the potential for good snorkeling is there; if we go again, I’ll do more research in advance and maybe hire a guide.

We rented a kayak, took some lunch and went out to the Pigeon Islands, about a 20 minute kayak or a 5 five minute boat ride. You could snorkel all around the islands, be careful.
