Snorkeling here was great. I saw an eel, lots of Garibaldi, and Cormorant birds diving in from the rocks to catch the small fish that were swimming in large schools. Also saw Anemones. The water was a bit rough and cold. Over all it was great snorkeling. I would not recommend doing it without a life jacket on.
