Cannel Bay and fear of snorkeling

Jump to last reply

After some research and thought I've decided that Caneel Bay might be the perfect resort for our 10th anniversary next summer as it has lush grounds, offers various meal plans (I guess I still want some of the "AI" convenience); is a short taxi ride to Cruz Bay for shopping/dining and of course offers "stellar snorkeling". My husband loves to snorkel but I've never been keen on the idea. I tried it once in Aruba several years ago and quickly ripped the mask off my face in a panic-granted, I didn't try more than once. Frankly, the thought of swimming among beautiful sea creatures doesn't interest me; although my niece tells me "once I get used to it, I'll love it". I love the water....looking at it, floating on it, sailing on it, just not being beneath it. However, It seems silly to book a trip to this resort if I don't partake in this activity. For those who enjoy snorkeling and weren't great swimmers to begin with, is it something just about anyone would enjoy once they become comfortable with the gear?

I also have a deathly fear of heights but forced myself to go zipling last year over the Bavaro forest.....I'd never do it again, but it was exhilarating trying something new.

Thoughts?
