This is a must do when visiting San Pedro or Caye Caulker!! There are so many Rays and Sharks down there it's really a beautiful experience and you feel very safe and comfortable as there is so much real food :)

This tour was by far the coolest thing I've ever done in my life. The tour guides, Karim and Lucia, were the best guides we could have asked for. They were super nice and knowledgeable - you could tell that they absolutely loved their jobs. We were taken on a fun boat ride out to the island, and on the... More

This was amazing fun for me. I'm not a strong open-water swimmer, so the relatively shallow depth plus sharks that I knew wouldn't bite me made it do-able but still exciting. If you've been to Stingray City in the Caymans this is the same idea - the sharks and rays start approaching the boat before the chum is even in... More

If you think this is one of those snorkeling trips where you "might" see a shark or a ray, think again. You will. And lots of other teeming fish. Great undersea views (bring a camera if you have one). There can be a number of boats and snorkelers around, but if your guide brings a little "bait" you will see... More

This is probably the most common snorkel trip on the Island of Ambergris Caye in Belize and there is a reason why; it's an inexpensive fun trip. You are pretty much guaranteed to pet some rays, see a nurse shark and swim among a variety of fish. It's close to the island so it's a relative short boat ride and... More

Go early if you can ...... but make sure you GO!! Like being in an aquarium. Get a good tour guide and practice your snorkeling skills a little before you go so that you enjoy every second of your time in the water. Feel free to get pissed off if the guide touches the rays - they are NOT supposed... More

Can you say CHUM? Cause that's what they do her to get the local nurse sharks into an absolute frenzy! And right after the great frenzy starts . . . You have the option to jump into the ocean and swim with the sharks. It's OK, they only eat stupid people . . . The ones who swim to close,... More

This was our 2nd stop of snorkeling for the day. Our guide brought food scraps and fed the nurse sharks as we snorkelers. Very exciting. Saw many sharks & rays. A definite must do if you enjoy snorkeling!
