Andria from Splash Dive shop was our guide to snorkel around Pompion (Pumpkin) Caye. She was a wonderful guide for first time snorkelers. The wind was against us at one point, and Andria helped pull me around the point to calmer water. She was wonderful, the island was beautiful and we experienced a few hours in paradise. Thanks, Andria!

Near ranguana Caye, sits a tiny lil private Caye with two of the kindest men care taking and hosting the island. We stopped to buy some fish from local fisherman on their boats and stepped on land to find the sweetest men offering us drinks, fish and a seat. Paths are lined with thousands of conch shells! Trees lined the... More

It is a private island so visiting it may require permission from the caretaker at location. The reef surrounding this island is wonderful... More

Picture perfect. We visited this quaint little Caye on a fun fishing trip. We snorkeled and fished from her shore. Great day!

We were brought out to Pumpkin Caye (a privately owned island) by our Splashdive guides to snorkel with one guide while three guys went out to scuba dive with guides. Clear Caribbean water crashed onto one end of this palm-covered caye which took about 5 minutes to walk around. It's tiny! It was quite windy, so we had to wrestle... More

This is an awsome way to spend some surface time between dives. We have never been served lunch between dives. What a great treat

My wife and I went out on a fishing trip, and our guide took us back to Pumkin Key where he cooked us lunch. My wife and I were sitting there eating after doing a little snorkling, she said to me this is like paradise. My reply to her was, babe this is paradise. Pumkin key is awesome.
