Shelly - you can do Grand Caymen on your own.
In Grand Caymen there is really good snorkeling at Eden's Rock and Devil's Grotto. All you need to do is get off the tender and walk a few feet to the dive shops. If you want to snorkel and swim with the sting rays you could choose from any of the vast array of local tour companies that offer these tours. We chose Captain Marvin.
In St. Maarten i would suggest booking a ships tour over to Pineal Island only because it involves water transportation off the main island. Its always a good idea to use a ships excursion if you have to go off the island proper. Good snorkeling.
I've been snorkeling twice in Grand Caymans. I would definately recommend there. The water was clearer and the excursions we went on were in places that had tons of sealife to see. I've been snorkeling in St. Thomas, Bahamas, Ixtapa and these places could not compare to the Grand Cayman snorkeling experiences.
