Off the west coast of Anguilla and northwest of Prickly Pear Cays, the snorkeling at Dog Island offers huge coral gardens to explore. There are plenty of reef fish, pufferfish and squid among the 8 foot tall coral heads. The water depth is 20 feet deep.
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, Dog Island is the 9th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 10 snorkeling dives in Anguilla.
