Off the eastern side of Jost Van Dyke, there is good snorkeling in and around Long Bay. While snorkeling off the eastern coast of Jost Van Dyke, you are likely to encounter wrasse, parrotfish, triggerfish, tarpon, sea turtles and spotted eagle rays. It is located offshore of the Foxy’s Taboo beach bar to teh southeast of the dock. After snorkeling, try checking out the nearby Bubbly Pool, which is best at high tide.

To reach the snorkeling in the British Virgin Islands by air, you will need to fly into either Virgin Gorda Airport (VIJ) or nearby St Thomas Airport (STT) in the US Virgin Islands. Virgin Gorda Airport is served by inter-island flights from San Jose, Puerto Rico (SJU) by Cape Air and Seaborne. St Thomas Airport has flights from mainland US and also from San Jose. There are several regular ferry services connecting St Thomas with Tortola and Virgin Gorda. In addition, there are BVI inter-island ferries interconnecting Virgin Gorda, Tortola, Jost Van Dyke and Anegada. When leaving BVI, there is a $20USD depature tax that must be paid in cash.

The Long Bay snorkeling can be reached by taking a cab to the Foxy Taboo, where you can access the beach.

Overall, Long Bay is the 13th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 27 snorkeling dives in British Virgin Islands.
