The night dive was incredible as well as the daytime snorkel. Alphonse works out of several hotels but the Phoenix is how we contacted him. He is knowledgable, saftey concious and lots of fun. The nighttime allows you to see so many things you don't see during the day...lobster, octopus, eels out and about and even a nurse shark. Because of Alphonse's experience and love of the area, you don't feel scared at all. Holding the big nurse shark was actually a highlight. Go to Hol Chan as soon as you get to San Pedro...best snorkeling I've ever done and go with Alphonse, one of the best snorkeling guides ever.

The marine park is worth seeing. It' s a $10 fee, but the amount of fish and coral you see in wonderful.

Went to Shark Ray Alley and Hol Chan reef and had a cool experience. Manuel from Reef Runner tours took us out on his glass-bottom boat and we cold see rays and many species of fish. At Hol Chan we put on our gear and Manuel led us around the reef pointing out sting rays, turtles, and at least 10 different species of fish. Definitely the best snorkeling we have done anywhere. At Shark Ray alley, Manuel chummed the water and sharks fed vigorously at the boats edge. So cool to be so close to take photos! A must take tour when in Belize.

Shark Ray Alley provided the highlight of the day with the nurse sharks and tame sting rays. I would avoid contact with them and let the professionals do it

A few sting rays, lots of fish. Not as good as Cozumel but better snorkeling than most places. Also, short distance from shore (by boat).
