I should think you would be just fine. I often see crocks in the lagoons in the south but along the beach I haven't seen a crocodile in over a year. Have you seen any JZB?

You should be concerned about boat traffic and should take precautions to ensure that you are visible to boat traffic by using a snorkeling buoy.

One of the neighbours south saw a manatee when she was snorkeling around her pier last year. Now that is just so cool.

There have been sightings of a sizeable bull shark running along the south coast - but I haven't heard of any face to face meetings with this big guy.

We don't want you to get chomped either.

If you find a Croc you could enjoy a new sport I invented here in San Pedro.

You get a rope and put it around It's neck like a collar,then you stand on It's back (Hold on tight) and ride it around.

I call it "Croc Surfing", so much fun. laugh

Even more fun if the Croc goes onto land, I rode one recently and must have been surfing at 30 MPH, (Did get a nasty scrape when I fell on the new paved section of Coconut drive). cry

Maybe I will look for that Bull Shark and invent "Bull Shark Surfing" too. crazy

I haven't seen a croc on the front side for over a year, until about one month ago I saw a little 4 footer. As soon as he saw me, he bolted. They are generally skittish but just keep aware of your surroundings especially at night. I think it is breeding season right now so their behavior may be a bit different than usual.
