Hol Chan & Shark Ray Alley Snorkel

Half-Day Boat Trip

Experience the mesmerizing beauty of the Belize Barrier Reef ecosystem with Ambergris Caye’s most popular snorkeling excursion! A scenic 15-minute boat ride from Mahogany Bay brings you to Hol Chan Marine Reserve, a very special part of the largest living barrier reef on the planet. Hol Chan is a magical protected environment where a natural channel joins the shallow calm waters inside the reef with the deep blue beyond. Marine life of all types naturally gathers here for a spectacular show! Visitors frequently see stingrays, sea turtles, moray eels, and hundreds of different species of fish and coral formations.

A professional Belizean marine guide will point out lots of cool stuff underwater while making sure that everyone is safe and comfortable. After a 45-minute snorkel session, you’ll hop back in the boat for another five minutes south to another part of the reserve, Shark Ray Alley, which is a haven for nurse sharks and southern stingrays. Jump in and get up close and personal! It’s a truly memorable experience and an absolute do-not-miss for any trip to Ambergris Caye.
