I'll be spending a weekend at a friends place at the Cliffs at Glassy Mountain, NNE of Greenville, SC, in early June.  I'm not familiar with the area and I'll snorkel, if I can find a spot, while they're golfing.  From Google Earth it looks like there are a lot of possible places, I beleive that I'll be in the Saluda drainage but I'm not sure, and local knowledge is in valuable.

The middle saluda over on road 97 (River falls rd) off of 276 has some good spots to snorkel. 

River falls rd and Gap Creek rd is a good spot, unless the water is ripping. Just above that on Cool River Dr is a good spot as well.

Agree with Stephen.  The Middle Saluda is the way to go.

Thanks guys.  It looks like I'll be right around the corner from those spots.

Neither snorkeling nor the Middle Saluda are my forte so I will respectfully defer to Stephen and Dustin. I will say, though, if you get further west for any reason, the Chattooga River at Burrells Ford has some really nice spots fairly close to the bridge. It is a good bit away from where you are going to be, but maybe hit it on your way there or back if you've not been there before. Might have dodge a couple anglers, but I've never seen more than a couple, no matter how many cars were lined up.

Matt, that spot is beautiful and diverse.  There is a trail leading from there to some waterfalls too.  Also, I saw my first and only bear there so be careful.
