SEEKING SUGGESTIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
« on: May 08, 2009, 17:07:19 UTC »
Seeking suggestions as to where to go to see great coral and large fish in shallow water.

My wife and I are very novice divers and have been primarily snorkelers with a great deal of interest in underwater photography, sailing, and kayaking.  We are interested to know where there would be opportunities for shallow diving and snorkeling where dugongs/manatees and dolphins might be encountered.  Areas to view whales and sharks are also of interest.

Thank you,

Jim McKay

Although I have not been there -- Holbox (north of Cancun) is supposed to be great for snorkeling with whale sharks during the summer.
