I actually snorkeled Champagne Beach. I took a taxi from a cruise ship and requested Champagne reef. Taxi followed the coast for 20 to 30 minutes to a state park with a $2.00 entry fee. We were charged $60.00 round trip for the taxi, but he did sit and wait 3+ hours while we snorkeled. I thought we would be quicker but the snorkeling was great and the Kabuli (beer) was not bad either. The park rents snorkel gear if you do not have your own. There is a wooden pier most of the way along the beach. The only negative is there is no sand and lots of rocks between land and the sea. The rocks are not sharp but they are not easily traversed. Snorkeling or diving here is terrific. Visibility was 80 to 100 feet with little if any current. There are the champagne bubbles that are rather unique in one area, but I do not think they are the best part. The tube coral, brain coral, other types of coral, very colorful fish, lots of variety, and plenty of them to see. This is definitely a place I wish to return to in the future.
