Short Notice Alternative Snorkeling Destination to St John?
I need a short notice alternative snorkeling destination for St John (posted September 24, 2017). I have been traveling to St John for 20+ years. Our young kids (ages 8 and 10) have been there every December since they were born, and snorkeling is something they have done since they were both 3 years old.
Needless to say, we are devastated for the St. John community and are praying they are able to rebuild their lives as quickly as possible after two horrible hurricanes and extensive damage.
We had a trip planned there for this December, but the villa we were renting was decimated. We are searching for another island that is family friendly, not over-developed, and has excellent beach snorkeling available for our annual December trip. Our choices are obviously limited to those islands that didn't sustain damage from the hurricanes.
We LOVE to snorkel and just hope to find another island that offers some good snorkeling options. I had initially looked at St. Croix and St. Kitts/Nevis, but snorkeling reviews of those two islands were not overly positive.
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
