South of Spanish Town off the southern tip of Virgin Gorda, the snorkeling at Blinders offers abundant marine life among a series of boulders. This is a boat-accessed snorkeling site located between the southern tip and north of Fallen Jerusalem Island. The waters range from 5 to 20 feet deep. It is best to only attempt snorkeling at Blinders in very calm seas.

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.

Overall, Blinders is the 15th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 27 snorkeling dives in British Virgin Islands. Several of the better snorkeling spots are nearby Blinders including The Baths, Aquarium, Savanah Bay, Dogs Island Group, Prickily Pear Island and Mosquito Island.
