Snorkeling is a highly popular activity and tourists usually choose to snorkel in the shallow waters just off the Florida Gulf Coast Islands. Gasparilla Island State Park is a popular place for snorkeling, as is the Snorkeling on Sanibel Island. There are several natural coral reefs, wrecks and man-made reefs in the area for divers and snorkelers to explore. In fact, more than a dozen artificial reefs are found within a 15 mile radius of Sanibel and Captiva Islands, which is why Snorkeling on Sanibel Island is such a popular activity! The most popular artificial reef found here is the Edison Reef, created from the wreckage of a former mainland bridge. Edison Reef is found in 42 feet of water, less than 15 nautical miles from the iconic Sanibel Lighthouse. Snorkelers and divers should expect to see an assortment of fish including barracuda, cobia, nurse shark, grouper, amber jacks and moray eel.
