Private Half-Day Sailing Tour with Snorkeling in Ambergris

Once you are nearing the reef, the crew will give you a safety briefing and hand out the sanitized snorkeling gear. They will also let you know a little of what to expect regarding the marine life you'll see. For beginners, a crew member will happily go over instructions on how to use the gear. Then into the warm waters, you go and follow the guide. Marvel at the teeming marine life with colorful tropical fish, coral, sponges, and so much more. This is a quiet world that's just filled with beauty. Finished snorkeling a bit early? Then float on the surface with noodles and catch some sun. The Marquesa offers a "stairway to the sea", which makes getting back on board a breeze.

Easy boat ride from Amerbergris Caye. Smooth waters. Lots of sharks, fish and rays in the sea grass. Good side trip.

It was truly incredible being in the ocean with these majestic beasts swimming around you. Under da sea's guide in the Ocean was very knowledgable about the surrounding marine life. Saw amazing things under the sea.

When you come here, make sure that you don't put your flippers or feet on the sand so the silt doesn't interfere with your vision. This is the coolest place to snorkel!!!

Honestly, Belize wasn't even on my radar... but our cruise line suggested this excursion and all I can say is "WOW!!!" This particular excursion to Shark Ray Alley was INCREDIBLE! Our crew took us snorkeling in the Shark Ray Alley area which is filled with Nurse Sharks and Sting Rays... most that are used to being hand fed by knowledgable tour operators. The tour operators know how to "handle" the sharks and rays and were able to carefully hold them long enough to allow us to gently touch them if we wanted to. I would never condone anyone to brazenly reach out to these creatures on their own, because they are, in fact, wild animals and therefore can be somewhat unpredictable. But even swimming alongside these incredible creatures was such an honor... to see them in motion in their own environment just filled me with awe. Our crew then took us to a second snorkeling stop along the Mesoamerican Reef that boasted insanely clear water which allowed us to clearly see 60' below us! During our snorkel trip, we saw barracudas, an assortment of tropical fish, beautifully majestic ELK CORAL, and even a Moray Eel! Our experience in Belize was truly "UNBELIZABLE"!!!

These animals are amazing and curious. The sharks and rays come right up to you. It's indescribable the feeling you get when you are so close to these beautiful creatures. Please be responsible and spread your love for these animals. Pick up a piece of trash or speak up to protect this place.
