Return to Park Ranger What's That?
There are as many as 500 different species of fish associated with the Virgin Islands. Coral reefs, seagrass meadows, and mangrove prop roots, are all important habitats for fish providing food, shelter, and nursery areas for fish at various stages of their lives. Snorkeling can visit these different habitats to watch the various behaviors by which fish live.
Snorkeling is a new experience for many visitors. Take time to become comfortable with your gear. To learn more about where to snorkel be sure to check out the Marine Users Information Page on the Virgin Islands National Park Website.
To navigate through these pages just click on the image of the type of fish you would like to see and then scroll through the images.
Please don't feed the fish in Virgin Islands National Park; it disrupts their normal life patterns, and they may become aggressive toward snorkelers.
