Default Snorkel tours at St. Maarten & Thomas / San Juan Kayak

I'm going on Carnival's Victory next week. What are the best shore tours for snorkeling at St. Maarten and St. Thomas? Is St. Thomas better? What about stingrays? Is the San Juan Bioluminescence Bay tour worth it? I enjoy kayaking, but will I need a strong partner?

Hi Wetdog,
If you want to get to a real good snorkeling island, when you are in St. Thomas, take a cab to the Red Hook Ferry and ferry over to St. JOhns/Trunk bay, great beach and good snorkeling. I know it takes some time, but its well worth it. You may also find a Carnival excursion that will take you, either way, I think you will enjoy this island.

i will echo Donna's statement. Take the water taxi over to St. john. Trunk Bay Beach is beautiful and they have a snorkel trail that is very easy.
