Every day that has coral, we snorkel. We will snorkel in 5 feet of water or 30 feet of water. Dad is a big snorkeler and knows how to get out of traps in the coral without panicking and sinking. He is also the one who usually drags us into the traps. We see quite a few things snorkeling from squids to grass. Today we watched a conch smack a clam on its own shell to get the shell loose so it could reach inside the clam shell with its foot to grab the animal inside. Snorkeling also doesn't mean just coral. You find different things in different places, you will normally find conch, squid, and certain kinds of fish in grass while others like parrot fish you will normally find in coral. Mackerel and tuna you will find in deep water while starfish and small crabs are in the shallows. We have been to many big reefs but there are bigger yet to see.
