Visited Boca Catalina in January. Swam out to the reef area, an easy swim from the beach. Sandy beach area and easy entry. Visibility was good and plenty of tropical fish, some eels and a small sea turtle. Beach was a little crowded but parking by the street was available. No facilities, so bring your own gear, coolers and beach chairs if you have them. We got there between dive boats, so we had the reef area to ourself. 3 dive boats showed up later in the afternoon and it got a little crowded, but we enjoyed our visit to Boca Catalina. I would recommend this for those looking for a snorkel site.
