St John Snorkeling Guide eBook

Day After Day of Joyous Snorkeling

NOTE: St John suffered a direct hit from Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September 2017 and there was extensive damage. The information in this eBook is from our 2015 visit.

We have heard from folks who used our guide after the storms that it is still very useful for finding snorkeling areas. That said, we have discounted the price by over 40% because the storm damage has surely changed the underwater descriptions.

Customer Review - Eileen

The "bible" of snorkeling for St. John. We have been going to St. John for 10 years and Nicole and Galen nailed it!

Customer Review - Gwen

My family used the St. John eBook and found it to be incredibly helpful. We have snorkeled St. John for the past seven years, but with this book we discovered new beaches to try and we learned a lot of things we didn’t know. It’s well-written, comprehensive, and a valuable tool for fish identification. We appreciated the ability to print out a version to take with us, too.

Customer Review - Bill

Once again, I have to tip my hat to you. I just came back from St. John & used your guide & it was wonderful. My wife kept saying, "How do you find these remote spots?" And, I tell her that I didn't. Galen & Nicole did.

Customer Review - Bria and Paul

The St. John Snorkeling Guide eBook provided a wonderful “Go-To” Guide for planning our snorkeling day trips. The eBook format made it easy to print out the sections that we wanted to have on hand... This guide was invaluable, and the icon rating system very user friendly. The maps were... very helpful in finding our beaches and snorkeling sites. We highly recommend this guide for anyone thinking about exploring the undersea wonders of St. John.

Customer Review - Paul

It was invaluable in finding some of the more remote sites. I don't think we would have found them without it. Your driving directions to the site, the best way to enter, and where the best snorkeling was at each site were extremely helpful. It is a well thought out and thorough snorkeling guide. Thanks for doing it!

What's in the St John Snorkeling Book?

34 of the Best Snorkeling Sites
How come we found St John to be the best Caribbean island we have visited for snorkeling, yet you can read reports from people that the reefs on St John are dead? Because they are only snorkeling the popular beaches with dead reefs. We focus 100% on getting you to the best snorkel sites and go overboard with useful descriptions and pictures of what it is like and how to get there. Compare this to general travel guides not written by snorkelers. They only give a few sentences about fewer spots, often with dated, incorrect, information.

  • At a glance reference chart of the key details about the location
  • Description of what you can expect, above and below water
  • Best water entrance location and what it is like (sandy/rocky)

  • Swimming directions to the healthiest reef areas with the most sea life
  • Detailed driving and parking directions
  • Facilities - bathrooms, water, shade, etc.
