You have to take a boat to get to this area. While there, we saw three turtles, manta rays and stingrays, and lots of fish snorkeling in this area.

If you're just starting to dabble with snorkeling, learning scuba, or just out right want to see some water creatures for some once in a life time memories... Hol Chan is a GREAT place to start! We visited it once for snorkeling and then again for her certification dive and both times (end of October) the sea turtles were in no shortage. The rays and other fishes were also quite a treat. Being on the near side of the reef you don't get much surge, so beginners should be comfortable with getting their face in the water without fear of breathing sea water in their snorkel. The guides are wonderful and so is the experience.

Some of the best snorkeling in the world! I have been to the reef in Australia and this was more colorful and lots of fish varieties!
