Liked our guide, Candy Man, from Tuff Enuff. Very experienced and helpful. We were provided with snorkeling gears and taken to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley. Both places were very interesting. We were swimming with sharks and sting rays over beautiful corals.

These were my favorite tour guides by far in Belize! Grabbing a hold of one of these majestic creatures and letting them guide me through their habitat was one of the most amazing experiences I have had snorkeling. I highly recommend this activity for any lover of the ocean and marine life. These creatures were so friendly and so nothing... More

A very cool trip, especially for more experienced snorkelers. Typically captains bait the water, and sharks and rays come right up to the boat. They're very people friendly, so not to fear. There's also tons of horse eye jacks that will swim around right next to you looking for scraps of food. You don't need to know how to scuba... More

We were nervous, but did it anyway. We were so thrilled that we didn't let being anxious keep us from doing something so amazing. It is intimidating when all the nurse sharks start to swarm the boat but most of them leave quickly. We ended up with about 10 or so that were swimming around. There was only one sting... More

Went on two trips here with Alphonse. He is amazing and made sure everyone in the group got to hold a nurse shark. As soon as he put in the feeding tube we had literally TONS of sharks surrounding us. Amazing experience!!!

I have never had so much fun in my life, but I don't think my wife would say the same. She was nervous about getting in the water with such notorious critters as sharks and rays. As I waited for her in the water, she tremulously began to descend the small ladder from the boat as we (all the tourists)... More

Sharks....really??? I thought we might see 2 or 3. NO! There were probably 100 nurse sharks in our view while we snorkeled. I did not believe I, nor my 11 year old, would do it....but we did! I never felt threatened! It was amazing....and a don't miss!!!!

Snorkeling with the nurse sharks is terrific. For some reason, I had no fear, swimming in the waters with so many sharks and rays. It's an experience that you'll never forget.

our fearless excursion leader casually fed the sharks while telling us to hop off the boat on the other side.... and then proceeded to swim down, pick up a shark, have us pet it, then release it! he also did the same for the sting rays. it was great getting to swim around and see all of the amazing wild...

This was amazing. We snorkeled with the sharks and felt very safe. The guides know how to keep you safe. We saw sting rays and a ton of sharks. I am usually not the biggest water person, but i had to snorkel here! MUST DO!
