ABC islands snorkel

We have a trip planned for Feb 2022 to the ABC islands and I'm looking for a snorkeling excursion. First which island is best to snorkel and second who is a good company to book an excursion with?

I've heard Bonaire is one of the best dive spots. We had that cruise cancelled, so I can't be sure. We have not snorkeled in Curacao or Aruba (too many other things to do). Following this thread.

Something to consider, given the new regs (whatever they really are)...going ashore and going with a private (non-cruise blessed) tour operator, for whatever purpose, may be a major no no....

Have also heard that Bonaire is the best for snorkeling and also agree with Yankee in that post covid tours will most likely be ship sanctioned or not at all.

Bonaire was excellent for snorkeling. My wife and I swam with sea turtles, an eel and thousands of colorful fish at 1000 steps dive sight... If you go, make that one of your stops, you will not be disappointed....

Does the cruise line offer any tours? It may be cheaper than booking privately.

At this point and into the foreseeable future I suspect that ONLY cruise lines booked excursions will be allowed as a part of the new protocols.

That could turn into a one way cruise.......hmmm
