Glover's Reef is quite a boat ride from Hopkins, but definitely worth it. We were a party of 7 - four were diving and three were snorkeling. We snorkeled various places along the reef with a great, very knowledgeable guide, while the others were diving....More

I would wait to book until you get there. There usually different boats going out on regular basis. If you are at a resort they can help you otherwise there a couple of dive shops in the area.
