“Dock Service”
Reviewed October 7, 2013

Saturday morning, September 14, called Anwar’s to see what snorkeling might be available that day. At first they said they did not know if they would be going out because there were no others booked. They told use to call back in an hour. We did and they said they trip was on. We had a dock at our house on the South end of the island (Casita Bella Vida) so they boated on down and picked us up. It was a sunny day for a change during rainy seas.

Seriously recommend wearing a shirt while snorkeling to avoid sunburn. The guide took us to three locations and swam with us identifying the sea life. When done, we ate fresh fruit before they dropped us off at our dock.

“Best snorkeling i've had”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

So all companies in Caye Caulker do the same trip so the good snorkeling if down to Caye Caulker and not really Anwar in particular.

We were trying to go with one of the bigger companies but they well full. We went with Anwar and it was great. There were only six of us on the boat so we moved very quickly.

They did many stops around the marine reserve and we saw everything.

I think the small groups are the big win with these snorkeling trips. We saw huge sail boats with 30+ people and it looked a nightmare. Not only are you waiting around for the slowest person but you're in for a long day.

“Great tour with Rocky”
Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

We did the full day snorkelling tour with Rocky as our guide. Only the six of us in the boat. Rocky was a great guide. Showed us the reserve. Found us a loggerhead turtle. More sharks and rays than we knew what to do with. The wreck of a barge and the coral garden. Ask for Rocky when you book. We would if we were going again.

“Very good snorkel ..not great”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

Took a zero day from diving and decided to take a snorkel tour with Anwar tours. Jose was our guide and we stopped at three different sites in our three hour tour. First site was around 20 ft. deep and had nice coral formations, free swimming moray eels, a turtle and a couple of barracudas. Jose did a nice job pointing out the various fish and coral formations. Site #2 was shark/ray alley. Very shallow site (you could stand) where they chummed the water and rays and a couple of lazy nurse sharks swam around your feet. (I much prefer to see both sharks and rays in the wild, but it was fun to see so many rays in one place)
Third site was a waste as water was VERY shallow with very little wildlife. Coral formations were pretty but if you've spent ANY time in the Caribbean you've already seen everything. Price was about 35 USD which was just about right for what we got.
Note: our boat was stopped by Belizean coast guard as we came back into port and didn't seem to have up to date papers....no worries for us, but I'd ask before booking.. Lol.

“Awesome Tours”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

My husband and I booked the Lemanai River Tour with Anwar. Our guide Rico took our group of 7 adults to see the beautiful ruins. We learned so much about the beautiful country of Belize from Rico. His wife made our group a delicious breakfast of Johnny Cakes, coffee and fresh lime juice. At the Ruins our guide was informative and his mother had prepared our group a traditional Belizean meal of chicken and rice and beans. Rico was great about slowing the boat down and pointing out different animals or plants along the river. On our return to the island his 1st mate spotted 4-5 dophins swimming close by. Rico stopped the boat for us to watch the dolphins. Our 2nd tour with Rico (Anwars) included the cave tubing and zip lining. We had initially wanted to take this tour on Wed, but Rico said that was a cruise ship day and recommended we go on Saturday. So glad he recommended this as our family of 5 were the only ones on this tour. How much better can it get- a private tour of beautiful Belize! The tubing is relaxing and the cave is beautiful and the zip lining is a fantastic adrenal rush! Rico was great- we loved hearing his stories about Belize and learning about the culture. Our family loved the two days we spent with Rico and his staff!! Definitely 5 stars!!!
