Seth and I went snorkeling almost everyday while we were in St. John. There are a lot of cays (tiny little islands) off the island that we would snorkel over to or sea kayak. We saw a lot of sea life–a lot of fish (most of them I don’t know the name), octopus, sting rays, eel, nurse sharks, sea turtles, sea cucumbers, jellyfish, conches, and starfish. And most of this sea life was seen right off the beach. There was one area we snorkeled and we came across a field of hundreds of starfish. We were ecstatic because on previous scuba dives and snorkel trips we had never seen a starfish. We also came across a beach with hundreds of conches in the shallow waters. Seth is hold a conch in on the pictures. Anyway it was pretty cool, but one thing we were disappointed in was that the coral wasn’t as colorful compared to other places we have been. They say the coral’s been bleached out from the water current and global warming.
