Barnes Bay Snorkeling

The 7th most popular snorkel dive spot in Anguilla.

Southwest of the airport on Anguilla, the snorkeling at Barnes Bay is well known for its offshore reef. During Barnes Bay snorkeling, you may encounter southern stingrays, sea turtles and the occasional squid. The dive site is located a mile west-southwest of Meads Bay.

To reach the snorkeling on Anguilla, you will need to fly into St Maarten and then take a small connecting plane to Anguilla via Anguilla Air Services. If small plane bother you, there is a regular ferry between the islands from Marigot ferry port on St Maarten to Blowing Point Ferry Terminal on Anguilla. In either case, there is a $20 USD departure tax per person. In case you are just interested in snorkeling off Anguilla, but don’t necessarily need to stay on island, there are several snorkeling tour companies on St Maarten that run multi-island snorkel boat charter tours over to Anguilla, such as Capatin Alan’s Boat Charter and EcoSnorkeling.

Overall, Barnes Bay is the 7th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 10 snorkeling dives in Anguilla.
