Buck Island is the most well-known of St. Croix snorkeling and diving spots, and all of the area's outfitters offer tours here. Visibility around the colorful coral reef tops 100 feet, picture-perfect for divers and for those following its underwater snorkeling trail.
If you'd prefer to do your St. Croix snorkeling un-guided, there are many fantastic spots to explore just off the island's beaches. Isaac's Bay, a somewhat hard to reach beach on the island's east end, has a barrier reef. St. Croix snorkeling is also good at Tamarind Reef Beach east of Christiansted, and at Cane Bay on the north shore.
