Meet your expert snorkeling guide and boat captain on White Sand Beach for a lesson in snorkeling and boating safety and a preview of the 90-minute excursion. Hop aboard the motorboat for the short, 15-minute ride to an excellent conch-diving location with calm, shallow waters. Check out Gibbs Cay, Cotton Cay, Long Cay and Round Cay and their pristine white sand beaches along the way.
When you arrive at the snorkel spot, experienced snorkelers will jump right in try their hand at diving for conch. Your guide will instruct any first-time snorkelers or those who have questions about conch-diving technique. Float in the warm, clear water while tropical fish dart through the sea grass around you. Be on the lookout for the conch's spindly shells, which are light-colored and blend in with the sandy bottom.
Whether you catch a conch or not, climb back into the boat with your intimate group of 10 people for a short cruise over to the soft sandy shores of Gibbs Cay. There, learn how to remove the stubborn conch from its shell and how conch ceviche, a classic Caribbean dish, is prepared. After enjoying the fruits of your labor, the boat will drop you back at White Sand Beach.
