St. John has many awesome spots to snorkel. A few, however, are known only to local residents, so we thought we’d offer an underwater tip out to anyone visiting the island and looking for an unadvertised adventure.

Go East.

With that hint, some of you may already know where we’re headed! Most visitors will travel the 8 miles on Centerline Road (aka Rt. 10) from Cruz Bay to Coral Bay, but few will forge further.

Follow Rt. 10 for another 3 miles to Haulover Bay, a low lying strip of land where boaters long ago would carry their craft to the opposite shore instead of sailing the rough waters around the East End of St. John. Haulover offers double the fun, with great snorkeling on both the south and north sides on calm days.  The bays at Haulover are protected by the National Park, so please leave nothing but your footprints behind. Continue east to the absolute end and you’ll find yourself at Hansen Bay.
