    Enjoy Culebra. Both good diving and snorkeling.
    For a good snorkel, try Melonese, just north of town and off the beaten path for most visitors. It's a protected area, so no spearfishing tho. The other better known beach for snorkeling is across the island at Flamingo? Beach.

    There was only one small dive operator on Culebra when we were there in 05, right across the street from the ferry landing. Culebra Divers. Good people, and nice diving. Ask them about spear fishing, and how to find the other dive site you can reach from shore, like Melonese.

    Have fun, Culebra was where I first took my two teens after they did their OW. They loved it!

    What "reefs" do you plan to fish? Most snapper, triggerfish and grouper are good to eat where legal.
