Off the north shore of St Eustatius, the snorkeling off the North Point is known for its huge coral covered boulders that are habitat for reef sharks and sting rays. There are barrel sponges and sea fans, along with spotted eagle rays and french angelfish.

Overall, North Point is the 5th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 5 snorkeling dives in St Eustatius.
