Snorkeling Tours in Caribbean
It would be hard to think of somewhere better than Belize to enjoy a snorkeling tour. Not only is the water warm all year round, but those clear, turquoise waters are also pretty hard to resist. So jump in and explore the many charms of snorkeling in Belize.
You may be wondering exactly what Belize snorkeling has to offer. Well, let’s begin with the huge and healthy Belize Barrier Reef that runs for over 180 miles along the coastline. This impressive natural reef, which incorporates the popular Cayes islands, is home to some of the most exciting underwater creatures and coral formations in the Caribbean. It’s definitely worth making time to visit during your Belize vacation.
Belize is also home to numerous marine reserves, one of the best known being Hol Chan. Cutting a channel through the reef, Hol Chan is divided into four main areas, including Shark Ray Alley, which is probably the most popular destination in the reserve. Shark Ray Alley snorkeling excursions will give you the exciting opportunity to get up close to the stingrays and sharks that call this little part of Belize their home.
Gladden Spit is another snorkeling hot spot where, in April and May each year, lucky snorkelers get to see the whale shark population that passes through on their annual migration.
As you can see, there is a whole host of snorkeling in Belize - the next step is to choose which snorkeling excursion you want to try!
