favorite snorkeling spots on Grand Cayman?

For anyone who likes to snorkel (but doesn't dive) -- other than Stingray City, where are your favorite snorkel sites on Grand Cayman?

Sting Ray City not at all good for snorkeling. Certainly an unusual place, with all the "tame" rays in such abundance-- but not really good snorkeling.
Best snorkeling is the Iron Shore (Eden Rocks) close to town and the "cemetery" out on the far end of 7-mile beach. Haven't been to Cayman in a while, so don't know what the reefs are like these days.

We spent a day snorkeling...besides Eden Rock and Cemetary Cove already mentioned...
We enjoyed the spot right by Lobster Pot lots of those big fish that look like barracuda but aren't [thankfully]...and Cheeseburger Reef was great. That was like being in a fish bowl. There's a fast food restaurant there..can't remember the name of it now. We also hit Smith's cove. That was nice because it was a secluded public beach not the best snorkeling though. There was one family there when we were there and then as we were leaving a huge cruise ship tour bus was approaching. We also went to Rum Point to hang out. I was too tuckered to snorkel but you could walk out pretty far [shallow] and see sting rays swimming by your feet.

If you are staying on the 7Mile beach side of GC, there's a great spot near the access spot at the "governor's house";next to the Westin.If you swim out about 75-100 yards, there's great snorkeling.This section of 7MB is my favorite, b/c everything is nearby. The Westin is to the left and Holiday Inn is to the right.Across the street, there's great restaurant w/ resonable prices called EATS.(there's a statue of Elvis outside) The HI has a bar and restaurant right on the beach, w/ jet skis etc.ENJOY
