Snorkeling Grand Case, St. Martin

Grand Case is known for its beautiful beach and exquisite French dining, but not so much for snorkeling. Which is a shame because there are some good options. (Shortcut to my video here.)

Snorkeling and Diving Galleon Bay, Antigua

While staying near English Harbour in Antigua, I had the opportunity to snorkel and dive Galleon Bay. Granted, it isn’t a premier dive site, but it was a fun way to experience my first shore dive and my first unguided dive.

Diving in Dominica: Day Two

The second day of diving, just like the second day of skiing, is so much better - I’ve worked out the kinks and can just relax. I rented a mask and dive computer and both worked like magic. We dove Scott’s Head Pinnacle, which is definitely one of the best fives I’ve ever done. There … Continue reading Diving in Dominica: Day Two
