My husband and I aren't big water people. As funny as this sounds for going to a beach destination, we typically prefer to look at it, rather than be in it. Because we weren't sure about snorkeling and didn't want to leave Belize without experiencing some of the amazing sea life, we booked the glass bottom boat tour with Reef Runner. We figured we could at least see some interesting creatures that way. But once we were out at Shark Ray Alley, it all changed! It was SO cool that we decided to jump in the water and join in the fun. The guides (boat driver and snorkel guide - Manuel and Primo I believe) were fantastic! They were great with beginners and helped me to keep a cool head. I was able to wear a life preserver around my waste to help me be more comfortable. The sharks do not bite (they use suction to eat). There were tons of fish, and the water was really calm. We then made our way to Hol Chan Marine Reserve. There we saw sea turtles, coral, and all kinds of fish. I didn't enjoy this part quite as much because the current was stronger (I'm not really a water person, remember?). But it was still really cool, and I had a great time. Primo was really good about checking on each person to ensure we were doing ok, and he pointed out a lot of interesting things along the way. Highly recommend!!
