I've been trying to find out the name of the snake I saw while snorkeling at Coral Beach. It was swimming below me, from under one rock to under another. About 3" in diameter, with black and narrow dark orange stripes. I couldn't see how long it was, since it was in the process of moving from one hidden spot to another. It took several seconds to see the tail, which did narrow down. Anyone know what it was? Thanks if you do! I'm new to snorkeling, and curious about all the fun creatures I have seen.

As a long time visitor, fisher, and diver to the area are you sure this was a snake? EEl's are proflic here and come in many shapes and sizes. True Sea Snakes spend very little time under water. Also I have seen very few sea snakes here.
