Your boat will take you across the Sir Francis Drake Channel to Norman Island where you'll snorkel The Caves or The Indians. You are guaranteed to see beautiful corals and sponges, plentiful fish, and perhaps a turtle or ray will swim by and visit. After your snorkel, we step ashore on Norman Island. Snorkel on a smaller nearby reef, wander ashore and explore the beach or hunt for treasure. Cooper Island, Chromis Reef is another popular site and often more conducive to snorkeling when sea conditions are not ideal. At Chromis Reef you can expect to see hundreds of fish, hard & soft corals, lobster, barracuda and maybe even a nurse shark! Access to the sites is right off the boat and snorkel lessons are available for beginners. Note: Participants must be good swimmers. Due to weather conditions, the snorkeling site may be changed. A beach stop on Cooper Island is optional depending on conditions.

This excursion was one of the highlights of our cruise. For the life of me, I can't remember the name of the vender that took us to the island, but they were professional, very funny, and very helpful. I would take this excursion again in a heart beat with these guys. We spent time snorkeling, and then went to a small cove with a small beach and relaxed soaking up the rays. They picked us up, and let us off right next to the ship.
A very professional crew who stressed proper safety both in and out of the water. The boat trip to Norman Island from the dock was a fast 25 minutes. The first snorkel site was magnificient - the water was crystal clear with schools of fish and lots of coral and sea life. The second snorkel site on the other side of the island was next to a sandy beach. Some of the people opted for the beach. The water was not as deep as the first site but there was plenty of marine life. I got some great photos in the crystal clear water. This is a shore excursion I highly recommend.
