    So we just got back from clear water beach Florida...was amazing if u haven't been there it's absolutely awesome, beautiful, amazing lol...went snorkeling which actually really sucked lol it's not a great place for it...the little island we went to was far from clear water...pretty murky because there was just a lot of sand in the current...other then that we went jet skiing for an hour in the gulf...decided to jump in quick a couple miles off shore which may or may not have been very smart but we r alive to tell about it so all was good lol...was a giant dj booth on the beach near our hotel so that was interesting...otherwise we drank a lot of beers mojitos daiquiris and ate lots of different foods...octopus not good in my opinion lol gator ribs meh there ok crab claws straight out of the gulf yum! Might wanna rename the song to "Florida girls" Katy perry lol

    I spent a week in Bonair last summer. With my brother and sister. Didn't do much snorkeling but the diving was amazing. The reef was directly off the house we were staying in. It was the first time I'd been diving since I lived in the Philippines over 35 years ago. Food was nothing spectacular. The waters around Bonaire are a park and nothing can be fished from those waters. They are very careful not to disrupt the best conserved reef area in the Caribbean. Not many tourists except divers so an amazing place to relax.
    In July we are going to Grand Cayman.

    I never liked snorkeling but loved diving. I grew up in Phoenix. I was certified to dive when I was around 15. My dad my sister and I used to drive to Mexico for long weekends of diving. There was a small town on the gulf of California where the diving was pretty good. When I was 18 we moved to Manila. I wasn't there much because I was in college in Arizona. But There is nothing like diving the South Pacific. The reefs are amazing.

    The climate may be similar between Alaska and northern Minnesota but the scenery is vastly different. I assume you aren't thinking about going in January.

    Best snorkeling in the continental USA Florida Keys where you can snorkel the reefs.

    Isn't Grand Cayman spectacular? Never dove, but snorkelling alone we saw lobster the size of my leg, puffer fish, queen triggers and a tiny little octopus just prancing accross the ocean floor. Not to mention the countless rays and turtles.
