I am planning to go to the Caribbean in January. I would like to be able to snorkel right off the beach, to avoid chartering a boat. Does anyone have suggestions on destinations (i.e. country, island, city, area)?

I've created a map of all these places using a web service I just discovered called batchgeo:
You are looking at Aruba; Montego Bay, Jamaica, Barbados and Tobago. Of course there are many other Caribbean islands, but these will give you what you are looking for. PS: Most Caribbean islands you can snorkel right off the beaches.
