Overview of Lover's Cove Marine Reserve

This spot is a great spot for beginning snorkelers and advanced snorkelers alike. For the beginners it's great because you don't have to swim too far from shore to have a great experience. The fish are also very used to people, and there are a lot of them.

Wear gloves if you're bringing peas or bread for them, as their enthusiasm leads to finger nibbling―more of a nuisance than a danger. Keep an eye out for: sea stars, eels, anemones, octopuses, and, most notably, the brilliant orange Garibaldi fish. If you are comfortable diving down 10 to 15 feet, you'll find many small crustaceans and beautiful nudibranches.

"I would call this a town square, not a park. I guess it has benches, so technically it is one, but there is little grass here. Anyways, the photos attached were from the winter holiday, and they used water bottles painted red and green to create the wreathes and tree, so I thought that was pretty cool. There was a stage setup, but we didn't watch any performances.
