Snorkeling @ Port Stops: Dominica, St. Lucia, St. Barts, DR & Barbados

Jump to last reply

We are taking a 24 day cruise to the Amazon and while that is our objective it does spend 6-9 hours in a number of Caribbean islands ports where we have not snorkeled except for Barbados 30 years ago and T&C 18 yrs ago.
Compared to Curacao, Grand Cayman (now not 7-8 years ago when it was much better), and St. John are any of the below listed islands really worth my arranging in advance for a snorkel trip? If some are, what spots have you snorkeled at in the past 2-4 years that you would recommend? I do not know just where the ship docks at each island therefore in Barbados it may be too far to get to but maybe not on the smaller islands I can make advancd arrangements for a 4 hour snorkel trip with my wife rather than the "lame" one, if any, the ship offers. But then again I do not need to snorkel where the coral is not healthy and there is not a reef system with a large variety of fish and sea fans. etc.
1. St. Barts-Gustavia
2. Barbados-Georgetown
3. St. Lucia-Castries
4. Dominican Republic- Cayo Levantado (I doubt)
5. Dominica- Rosseu
6.Grand Turk,Turk and Caicos
7. Tobago-Scarborough.
Thanks.
