I am a novice snorkeler and because I want to be able to walk out on a sandy bottom and snorkel where I could actually stand up any time, this place is perfect!! Nice walk ways, picnic tables, places to rinse off and clean bathrooms....More

Spent a Sunday there recently with 3 young children. I would recommend going early in the day as it did get crowded later in the day. I would also pay attention to the tide as apparently there is better visibility for snorkeling at low tide....More

Biked to this beautiful spot at the end of Singer Island. Very clean with friendly staff. Boardwalk across park, or ride the free shuttle.

It's a manmade reef, but the water is really clear, there are lots of fish, and, as it was windy when we visited, the rocks kept the water mellow. If it had been mellow in general, I would've wanted to also paddle around the island....More

I didn't see any dogs when we were there however, the website says they are permitted as long as they are on a leash.

On the east side of the island is best place, that is where the beach is. There is a per person fee to ride the ferry, that is the only cost.
