We did 4 snorkel trips for the full day. Carlos and Carlos were awesome hosts. I got a little sea sick and was taken care of really well. The Carlos' take you to some great reef spots and we saw sharks, turtles, rays, eels and an array of fish and coral. Carlos the owner is pretty easy going and very... More

Our snorkel trip with Carlos was the best we have ever done. They are meticulous about getting your gear right and monitor your confidence as a swimmer. Carlos and Carlos Junior led the way and new exactly where to find the fish. We played with nurse sharks, turtles and rays and had sightings of more species of fish than we... More

This was a half day snorkel trip to the barrier reef. Our guide , Romero , was very good. You could tell it was not his first rodeo. We stopped at 3 locations and saw amazing sea life; nurse sharks, sting rays, eels, turtles and tons of colorful fish. Carlos Tours was recommended and did not disappoint. For $35US I... More

Carlos' son, Carlos Jr., gave my wife, myself and 3 others the personal touch on our half day snorkeling adventure. He pointed out different species of fish and coral like a well-seasoned aquatics professor, attended to our every need and even threw in a side trip to the western side of the Caye, where we learned about the different types...

Carlos is a very knowledgeable about the waters around the cayes and brings his flare to the whole experience. We saw sharks, turtles, eels, lobster, fish, rays and the reef all in one day of snorkeling with Carlos. Carlos is friendly, fun, and brings you closer to nature. Also, his respect for the waters and its creatures makes him the... More

Outrageous! Second best tour ever after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and I have snorkeled around the world, Makes sense through because Hoi Chan/Shark Ray Alley wasn't just the fish, petting the nurse shark or stingray or seeing the lime green eels or huge turtles in their natural environment. It was that Carlos and his team did a great... More

Carlos is a really great guide. He is friendly and very experienced. I've gone on his snorkeling tour two years in a row and he remembered me from the year before. That's pretty remarkable considering he guides snorkeling tours everyday and has been doing it for 20 years. You'll see nurse sharks, manta rays, tropical fish, conches, and all the... More

I mean it I really hate this guy. He knows everything about the reef and takes his guests out for an amazing journey every time. Ok so I don't "hate" Carlos I am just really envious (I always get those two sins confused). He has a great business, great staff, amazing knowledge and I found out on this trip (we... More

We went on two snorkeling trips with Carlos Tours. The full day on Monday was lead by Carlos himself. A trip with Captain Jack Sparrow himself. (You'll get it when you meet Carlos for the first time) We picked up his son, Carlos Jr, in San Pedro and he helped with the last half of the day. The full day... More

The tour is run very professionally and with a good sense of humour. We were amazed at how much we saw just a few hundred meters off shore from Caye Caulker. They also shot about 90 beautiful underwater photos which we got on disk for US$15 after the tour. A nice little circumnavigation of the Caye ended the tour. Definitely... More
