Snorkeling sites abound on Long Island, which is divided by the Tropic of Cancer. Here weather conditions are enjoyable year-round. Surrounded by the turquoise blue of the Exuma Sound on the lee side and the deep rich blue of the Atlantic on the east, Long Island boasts high cliffs and rolling headlands, peaceful coves and secluded beaches. Accessible by boat, there are some fifteen miles of shoreline offering an array of hard and soft corals with an abundance of fish and colorful sea life in crystal clear water.
A multitude of locations, including Columbus Harbor and The Caves, appeal to snorkelers and divers of all levels. Small bays and coves offer exploration in the incredibly clear Bahamian waters. Snorkeling is a fun and easy activity. At Stella Maris whether guests strike off on their own, or join in a guided excursion, they will quickly learn that the only difficult thing about snorkeling is getting out of the water at the end of the day.
