This place is amazing! After our dive with Amigos Del Mar at Hol Chan they took us to snorkel in Shark Ray Alley. Those nurse sharks are huge and very friendly.

Searious Tours took us to Shark Ray Alley as part of a snorkeling tour to Hol Chan Marine Preserve. Eddie and Junior, our tour guides, made sure we all had a wonderful time.

Huge nurse sharks swimming all over eat other as they chum the water. Very large sting rays circle below in about 10 feet water

As soon as your boat pulls up, the sharks will come! The feeding frenzy begins and you can jump in and watch (from a safe distance). As soon as the chum is gone, so are the sharks. But there are fish, stingrays and we saw...More

The sharks follow the sound of the motor by the tens. Almost like cattle to a hay bale. Once the chumming starts they are everywhere and it is an outstanding experience to swim with them.

Anyone with a boat could take you there, but probably easier just to go on a trip. People who own boats are probably tour operators anyway... Some of the operators feed the sharks too so they are more likely to come to the... More

You’re in deep water but the guide we had, had a life ring that you could hold onto. It allowed you to snorkel a little but have the security of the life ring near you.
