Can't help you with Barbuda, but on your way there I'd highly recommend the Nonsuch Bay area for snorkeling. Green Island and it's anchorage Rickerts Bay are great, keep an eye out for turtles, and if you can get in, just around the corner is Ten Pound Bay which is gorgeous, but a bit shallow.
Generally there will only be a few boats at Green Island (Rickerts), but the daily charter cats will drop by and disrupt your day for a couple of hours.(but that can, in itself, be somewhat entertaining)
The reef in Nonsuch bay proper is a bit of a dinghy ride out but a good snorkel unless the swell is high.
Keep an eye out for Eric Clapton's "home" between English Harbour and this area.
Caution is required entering this area of Antigua's east coast.
