Default Best Place to Snorkel in St Thomas

Can anyone recommend a snorkeling tour in St Thomas? We are taking RCCL in December and all would like to snorkel, however their are several different tours to choose, and its really hard to pick one. Any advice would be great

Try to find an excursion that takes you over to St. Johns/Trunk Bay, very good snorkeling and its a beautiful island and beach. I've gone a few times and it never disappoints me.

There are also ways to go on your own, taking a cab to the ferry and then another cab to the beach once at St. Johns. It does involve some time, but well worth it.

by far the best snorkeling is over on St. John Island.
If you want to do a tour then i recommend the Champagane Catamaran Sail Away - this is an awesome tour. Other tours just don't give you enough snorkel time imo. If you want to do it on your own you can do it very easily. go to www.vinow.com for the ferry schedules and beach information, the key to doing it on your own is to budget your time, allow yourself enough "wiggle" room to get back to the ship. We usually snorkel/beach in the morning.

I didn't do it but I was also told how great St. John is for snorkeling. I wish I had gone there.
