I have been up to Cotton Bay a few times in the past, and I have snorkelled it a few times, but recently I have really enjoyed a trip there. First off the bay is beautiful, as seen in the photo below. With access only by boat, or a little known hiking trail, the bay is uncrowded and feels like your are visiting an untouched secret place.

There is not a large reef here, but due to regular feeding by boats there is a colony of Filefish that have become accustomed to people. There are also a few Caribbean Grey Stingray that live in the bay.

On the right side of the bay there is a large rock. On the left side of the rock the water is deeper than the shallower channel on the right side. This trip showed off a beautiful Queen Angel Fish and Spotted Moray Eel.

There is also a rock in the middle of the bay, that has a ton of small coral and fish.
