Swimming, Snorkeling, Scuba Diving

There are two primary beaches for swimming and and snorkeling within John Pennekamp Coral Reef Park. Cannon Beach is the most popular snorkeling beach. There are remnants of an early Spanish shipwreck just 100 feet from the shore. When we were snorkeling there I spotted numerous fish as well as a "ray"  of some sort swimming near the ship. I also saw the ships cannons as well as a couple of different crabs.
