Took a catamaran snorkel stop to this bay. the water was very calm and the snorkeling was quite good. Lots of smaller fish were seen. The hill behind was steep jungle with wondering goats. Worth while.

Well, the joke that is told every day on the catamaran, is "I'm not shitten you". It's sort of funny the first time. But, the snorkel experience is probably the best in SK. About 18 feet deep of crystal clear water, lots, I mean lots...More

Good clear water with a modest amount of fish. Even a couple of barracudas underneath the catamaran. Good to tour around underneath for an hour. Even a shipwreck.

Sailed with Purple Turtle Charters to Shitten Bay where we snorkeled around a wrecked ship. Saw stingray and squid along with a lot of colorful fish. Beautiful and serene

Great place to anchor the boat and hang out for a bit. Usually always just a bath tub once you get in the water, not too cold and calm waters usually everyday of the week. We have even made a couple turtle friends that wave...More

We came here to snorkel from Basseterre as part of a catamaran trip. Clear, but cold water and a variety of tropical fish. A barracuda was one of them. Good spot for a stop, just wish the water had been warmer!

This was my second time to Shitten Bay via a catamaran excursion and it was just as fun this time as it was the last. There is a large area for you to snorkel in with a fair amount of coral, lots of fish and...More
