Great tour company! Booked through carnival, but would seek out again. Our guides Fillip, Ian, and Karim were outstanding, knowledgeable, and safety conscience. They stopped to see pods of dolphins, explain the reef, economic systems, private islands, and go over the entire history of belize. The sharks and rays were amazing as well as all the other sea life including... More

I never thought I would get in the water anywhere close to live, in-the-flesh, fast swimming sharks, but I did, and it was fun. These are nurse sharks and, while I'm not exactly sure what that means, they did not appear to be eating anyone in our group. They range from 6-10 feet, and are impressive animals.

Yes, you can pet a shark or a ray here. With guides to help you, it is safe to do! I would suggest wearing nothing shiny as it might attract more attention than you are ready for. We actually saw and touched more nurse sharks at Mexico Rocks, perhaps due to having less boats in the area.

To jump in the water and be surrounded by sharks 10-12' feet long and have rays skimming the ocean floor under your fins is surreal. Put this on the top of your list of things to do!

Who would have thought that you could swim safely with sharks? Thought I would be terrified, but wasn't at all. It was a fantastic experience that I will never forget!!

Ya gotta do it if you're in Belize. It's very safe and gets your heart pumping at first. Especially when the guys from our dive shop said you'll be getting in the water from this side of the boat and we'll be feeding the sharks off the other side of the boat. Feeding? As in shark frenzy? Don't worry, they're... More

Cool place to be able to see both of the animals eat and co-exist. Depending on the day you can see upwards of 10+ of each coming to feed. Very fun experience, must do when you visit the island.

Very cool experience. You can get 4 feet from sharks! I brought a 'selfie stick' (yeah..everyone laughed until I was able to get close up of the shark's faces). Really amazing experience. They are Nurse sharks so not really aggressive but it was amazing and fun!!

We snorkeled here with the very professional, fun, informative team from No Worries Tours!!! We saw dozens of Sharks with one big one that I estimate was roughly 9 or 10 feet long and dozens of Rays from all sizes too!!!

The fish were very active here, lots to see. They were mostly ignoring us, they were very excited about the feeding tube. Our guide scrubbed the bottom of his boat while the Sharks were all swimming around! It was a riot 😃
