Make sure you go snorkelling with 'Caye Caulker Reef Friendly Tours'. They are the only agency on the island who aim to protect the coral reef by not feeding or touching the nurse sharks. Believe me, you will see plenty of them without needing to bring food so protect them and the future of the coral reef by going with a the only eco-friendly agency.
Bear in mind that feeding the sharks creates a human dependency and consider how they would survive in the low season without tourists feeding them. Not to mention the danger for snorkellers entering the water with a group of hungry sharks at the end of the low season (as sharks have been known to attack humans in attempts to get food from them).
The Hol Chan Reserve is an incredible place and all of the agencies are obliged to charge the same price for the tour, so stop and think about the future of the coral reef and chat to the friendly team at 'Caye Caulker Reef Friendly Tours'.
Our guide was brilliant and even took us snorkelling at a shipwreck and away from the masses of tourists around the boats. They really know how to do things right and I could not recommend them more highly!
The snorkelling is incredible here with water so clear that we could see our guide freedive 10m down, as we were surrounded by beautiful marine life - nurse sharks, sting rays, eagle rays, turtles. etc. This is an incredible place most definitely worth visiting, especially when done in the right way.
