“Sharks and Rays!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

If you're ever able then be sure to take the trip to Hol Chan Marine Reserve to go snorkeling. This is a great place to snorkel and you'll see sharks and rays among many other fish.

It's not private or secluded but the fish are abundant nonetheless. We went with Happy Hour Tours based out of the White Sands Cove Resort and our guide was excellent.

We enjoyed the snorkeling immensely.
