The variety of turtles and fish on this reef was outstanding. It is a short trip and worth it. They also have a stop where they feed reef sharks off the back of the boat and it was very cool to see them feed.

I've little to add that hasn't been already said here but just want to say that I'm an experienced diver and snorkeler and I might be a little jaded. Hol Chan is really stunning and the beauty of it is that it is an easy boat ride from both Caye Caulker and Ambergris Cay. I LOVE the fact that boats visiting the marine reserve must be checked out on site by a police boat before visiting the reef--helping to manage visitors and preserve the reef.

Loved swimming with the turtles, sharks and rays. Clear, warm water. Colourful fish. Definitely worth the time.

My friend and I went in the morning and were the only two snorkeling on our glassbottom boat tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable, friendly, and adaptable to our speed and interests. The water was clear and there were plenty of different types of coral, sea turtles, rays, eel, and colorful fish to see. Can't wait to take my daughter here next time we go.

The snorkeling is the second best in this hemisphere with lots of fish and living coral. The water crystal clear and less than ten feet deep. The only problem is when you are with a large group. The tour guides want you to keep close together and you may get a fin in your face or rub up against someone.
