My family and I have done a lot of travelling in the Caribbean over the years, and the day that we spent with Oliver and Jimmy ranks as one of the very best. In fact, it was a top 10 life day! From the friendly patter on board the boat as soon as they picked us up at the our hotel dock; to watching Jimmy dive for some conch bait/lunch; to the terrific reef fishing (action-packed enough for our 15 year-old daughter to get completely hooked after passing on it initially); to an amazing island lunch consisting of our catch, heaps of coconut rice and lots of secret sauce; to some wonderful snorkeling, it was over the top beautiful from start to finish. Spending a full day on a small boat with strangers is a gamble. Heck, spending a full day on a small boat with your own family is a gamble! These guys made it easy, fun, and educational. I would recommend Cari'Bean to anyone.

My wife and I were married back in May at the Grande Caribe. The day after we were married Oliver picked us up for a day of snorkeling. This snorkel trip consisted of 2 snorkeling sites and a Belizian style cookout on a private island. Oliver and his crew were exceptional.We felt safe and very comfortable. They were very accommodating while dealing with 2 newlyweds and both of our family's.

Currently we are on a second trip in Belize and have gone on 2 other snorkeling tours with different company's and by far Cari'Bean Tours was the best.

Our family of four spend a day with Oliver and Brian. They picked us up at the Pelican Reef dock, made a quick stop to dive for conch and then stopped to fish for snapper and porgies to eat for lunch. We then moved to a great spot for snorkeling and spear fishing. We saw nurse sharks, a giant moray eel, tons of fish, schools of jack, the gray/black fish, lobster, etc. Our next stop was to Baho Caye, which is a small private island where Brian prepared our lunch of snapper/porgie in a spice and tomato based stew, grilled lobster and conch, fried whole fish, and coconut rice. It was all delicious! We made one more fishing stop before returning to our hotel. We did not see the manatees as November is not the time of year they come around. This is by far the best excursion in Ambergris Caye and can be customized based on your likes! Our boys aged 17 and 14 love to snorkel and fish, so we spent most of the time on these activities.

Went fishing twice caught some snapper and a barracuda first time out and had lunch prepared for us on a private island ....awesome! Second time out caught snapper and a big trigger fish again one of the guys (Brian) cleaned the fish and cooked dinner for us! Both meals were the best we had for the whole two weeks we were in Belize!

While in San Pedro, we were continuously haggled to go snorkeling with various companies walking in town. A lot of them felt really sketchy! We decide to book our tour through the Phoenix Resort! And they did a great job at finding us Carri'bean tours! We did a customized tour of: snorkeling in 3 different coral reefs, saw manatees, sting rays, and sharks, fishing for our lunch, private island BBQ lunch, tour of Caye Caulker.

First off, remember to reapply your sunblock when snorkeling!! Also, remember you can potentially get wind burn!!! And boy does that hurt!!!

At first Oliver and Brian were not very talkative, but as we got more into our tour we realized they were really cool guys! Oliver who totally reminds us of Danzel Washington was hilarious and very skilled at what he does. The fishing was super fun, but thats where we got sunburnt. BBQ lunch was great surprisingly! Brian walked with us around Caye Caulker and let us explore the town. It was very nice and it felt safe.

I think the best part of the tour is knowing you can trust them and that they are here in your best interest to make sure you have fun and be safe.

Thank you for the awesome tour! But next time please remind us to reapply sunblock and potentials of windburn! :(
