There is some nice snorkeling, however, this is not specifically a snorkeling trip, bring your snorkeling equipment if you like. We will spend the day swimmin and, hikin with some snorkeling. We will have a beach umbrella, ice chest for your drinks and transportation by boat to and from the backside of Icacos Island.

'Rash Guards' are highly recommended or long sleeved light cotton shirts will do. If you insist that you can use enough sunblock to cover yourself, you will regret the sunburn you get.
