The beach at Deep Bay was where all the watersports equipment was located. There was also a watersports instructor there most of the time to assist the guests with the equipment. I learned how to windsurf and to sail a Hobie Cat. I got pretty good at the windsurfing, but I really enjoyed the Hobie Cat. I usually took Emily out with me, but occasionally I went out by myself. We also did plenty of kayaking, usually in single kayaks, but we also took the tandem kayak out a few times.

Not bad for a novice!

The snorkeling down there was excellent. We both brought our own equipment, although Biras Creek has plenty on hand for guests to use while they are there. We both really enjoyed the snorkeling, and saw many interesting fish and coral formations. We often took one of the dinghys out by ourselves to find a nice secluded area to snorkel at. We also took two organized trips to do some snorkeling.
Thursday morning we did one of the optional activities: a glass bottom boat ride over to the Baths for some snorkeling and exploring. The Baths are an area where there are these huge smooth boulders along a small area of the Virgin Gorga coast. Since the rest of the coastline is mainly rough, jagged rocks, these large, smooth boulders seem totally out of place. We learned that the Baths got that name because it was where the ships brought slaves to bathe. The snorkeling was excellent - we saw many fish that we hadn't seen before on this trip, including a large stingray. We also enjoyed climbing all around the boulders. After we finished there, we stopped at Spanish Town to do some shopping. Then on the way back, our captain stopped the boat and turned around. Turns out he had seen some sea turtles through the glass bottom. He took us back and we all got to see them. We also saw a big starfish. This trip lasted about 4 hours, and was well worth the price ($40 per person).
