Imagine this: snorkeling in pristine tropical waters, surrounded by nurse sharks and sting rays all competing for your attention as you choose which ones to feed. Sound appealing? Then this is your perfect Belize excursion.

You’ll be collected from Tourism Village at the cruise port, or from your Belize City hotel, and transported out to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. This is a government-designated nature park located just off the shore of Ambergris Caye, one of the famous Belize Cayes. You’ll visit an important section of the reserve, a 30-foot-deep channel that cuts through a section of reef. This small part of the park has gone on to become one of the most abundant and richly diverse sections of the barrier reef, supporting an astounding number of fish, mammals, and coral formations. You’ll spend some time snorkeling in Hol Chan Marine Reserve, seeing for yourself why it is so precious.

You’ll then visit another popular part of the reserve, to enjoy a Shark Ray Alley snorkel adventure. As its name suggests, this section of the reserve is filled with sharks and friendly southern sting rays, which you’ll get to swim with, feeling the adrenaline coursing through your veins as nurse sharks approach you, keen to meet their latest visitors. If you’re feeling brave, you can feed them too - which, as well as being a great experience, also makes for a great photo opportunity!
