Folkestone Marine Park is one of the better places in Barbados for snorkeling. There are two fairly large coral reefs here, with lots of fish.

We saw squid, parrotfish, blue tang, chubs, rays, porcupine fish, trunkfish, eels, and quite a few others in our few days of snorkeling. We tried night snorkeling too, which worked fairly well with bright waterproof flashlights, but was pretty scary.

All the photos I took were taken with my digital SLR in an underwater bag I made. If you're interested in something like this, take a look at http://tuxable.com/2008/10/11/making-an-underwater-camera-bag/.
