“God's gift to mankind - Snorkeling in Belize!”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

Being up close and personal with these incredible ocean creatures (safe, non-threatening nurse sharks, eagle rays, huge sea turtles, all kinds of colorful fish) was one of the best parts of our trip. Ask for "Victor", the snorkeling guide from El Secreto resort on Ambergris Caye. He's very knowledgeable, knows when/where the fishermen are feeding the sharks/turtles/rays, and he's the best guide ever and an amazing free-diver. If you can, combine this with a trip to Caye Caulker for an afternoon of shopping/eating on the island. So much fun!

“Sharks and Rays Oh My!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

We went to Shark Ray Alley along with our trip out to Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Upon arrival our guide threw bait into the water to bring the sharks up to the boat and told us to jump in. What an experience to swim among the nurse sharks and sting rays. Time there was short but fun.

“Save the sharks!! Swim with these amazing creatures.”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We went on a tour with Baby Boy Boats to snorkel Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley and were amazed when we got to swim side by side with the native nurse sharks and gentle sting rays. You have to try this!!!

“Life Changing”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

The most amazing experience ever. This is not to be missed. We snorkeled for awhile off of the reef and saw the most amazing fish and eagle rays. Then we went to shark ray alley...we were able to touch the Ray's which were slimey :) but super friendly. They no longer let you pet the sharks because it has affected the way the sharks interact. We completely understood and would rather leave the environment intact the way we found it. Beautiful waters and Aqua Dive shop took excellent care of us.
