We took a snorkeling trip with lil' Alponse and this was one of our stops. There was an abundance of fish and beautiful coral. This was some of the best snorkeling we have ever done - would definitely recommend.

We have been to Hol Chan twice snorkeling. There is not a lot of current and there is a ton of marine life. My wife and our six and eight year olds had a great time. Tons of fish. Nurse sharks, sting rays rays, blue tang, moray eel, spotted eagle rays, horse eye jacks,... Plenty to see for sure. It is best to go on a less windy day with less experienced snorkelers or kids. It is nice to book your trip with a smaller group if possible. Some of the bigger troops make it difficult. It is a short boat ride (roughly 5 Minutes) south of San Pedro.

visited with the seduced by Belize. Very affordale and fun group. Would recommend to anyone. Good value een if you never went into the water the boat ride was worth it.

Hol Chan is a great site for snorkelers or inexperienced divers, but there are many many many better sites in Belize for divers with experience. We saw some cool schools of big fish, and it was great for our first diving experience in Belize, but the visibility wasn't as good due to there being so many people in the water.

Fun, great tour guides. We all got the hang of snorkeling fast. Lots of people/other tours there. Some not as "on it" as our guide. Couple ppl came into our group "chasing" a turtle, trying to touch it (which no one is supposed to touch turtles, reef, coral). One stingray had "Mystic Belize" "finger-painted" on its back. That made me sad. Some say there's too many boats/tourists that go into that area, but I think it's good that this many ppl are contained to one area to minimize the damage. You will see sharks (nurse) and stingrays, turtles and some fish.I thought there would be more colorful fish, but I guess we were not in the right part of the sea for that!
