As of August 2011, you must pay De Palm Island either $99 for a full day package or $89 for a half day package that includes snorkeling gear, a ride to and from the Island, drinks and all of the CRAPPY food you can eat. I would not recommend spending money to go to this snorkel site. I am surprised that people still go there. We did see big blue parrot fish and some barracuda. However, I felt that the reef was 'dirty' and damaged. It was NOT worth the $99. My suggestion, go to Mangel Halto down the road.
