“Snuba at Hol Chan is Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

There is so much to see at Hol Chan and you can either snorkel or snuba. I have done the snuba with Discovery Expeditions twice and it was great both times. You will see an abundance of marine life so take your camera.

“Beautiful reef snorkel and dive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

We did a snorkel trip to Hol Chan and two days later I did a dive at the same spot. Clear water and lots of fish, a turtle and beautiful reef colors.

“Tons of fish and sharks too”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Ok we only saw nurse sharks but the kids thought it was very cool. Water clarity was good and like I said a ton of fish since they do not fish there. There are better snorkel sites in the Carribean, but this is a must snorkel stop if you are in San Pedro.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Beautiful place to see tons of sea life - wide variety of tropical fish, eagle rays, eels, etc. The time went by so fast while above the reef, then I thought our tour was over. Our guide bypassed the boat and continued swimming and the water had very cold spots. I kept thinking, where are we going? Then we saw the sea turtles swimming and eating in the grassy spots. The water was not as clear there but was a gorgeous site nonetheless. Worth every chill bump.

“Incredible scuba diving!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

This was my first experience scuba diving, and Hol Chan is amazing. In very short order I saw a sea turtle, many nurse sharks, and eel, Christmas worms, and countless fish. Definitely the highlight of my trip!
