Northeast of Spanish Town on the west coast, the snorkeling at Mahoe Bay offers a protected bay that is ideal for beginner snorkelers. There are two reefs that protect the bay and offers calm waters.
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, Mahoe Bay is the 20th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 27 snorkeling dives in British Virgin Islands.
