Great snorkel spot

Best of 3 snorkel spots we hit with Blue Water Divers. Highly recommend, especially at the edge where the wall drops 7,000 feet. Eerie. Tons of fish.

Yes, this is a library of underwater marvel! Ledges of coral and shelves that house sea creatures. Make sure to take your time and explore all the tiny crevices.....you will be surprised by what you find!

We took a 2 hour snorkeling trip with Grand Turk Divers and really enjoyed snorkeling along the edge of the wall.

This is the 3rd biggest reef in the world. Who knew? Outstanding things to see- you have to go. We snorkeled it, but we saw plenty of divers on our deep dives. There is a drop off that goes from 15 ' to 7000'.

OK I'm surprised a dive site is here as an attraction - but hey I'll review it... When I dove this site the water viability was not good, some rough weather had just passed close by and created some large swells. But even without good visability we still saw 7 turtles and two rays - good dive.

We visited this reef as part of the Supreme Snorkel package with White Sand Snorkel that we had booked before leaving home. Both the tour and Library Reef were spectacular. While on the reef, we were allowed to feed the fish and explore on our own. The marine life we saw that morning were abundant and beautiful. This reef is... More

Absolutely breathtaking!!! Very clear water,wonderful snorkeling and only a short trip off the shore, we paid $45 for snorkel gear and a short boat trip ride out and it was totally worth it.. They did feed the fish so we were able to see all sorts! You can swim out on your own if you are a good swimmer.

Visibility 100ft plus, didn’t need to dive deeper than 70ft and water temperature 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Healthy colourful reef (reds, blues, yellows), varied corals including fans and sponges. We saw a porcupine fish, boxfish, puffer, various butterfly fish, barracuda, parrotfish, various triggerfish, small cleaner shrimps, large crabs and a huge lobster to name just a few. Best to check it... More
