Our main reason for travelling to Caye Caulker from Mexico was to go snorkelling and this excursion did not disappoint. We made three stops and got to see lots of sea life including turtles, nurse sharks, and rays. Lunch was included - as were lots of drinks on the way back! The boat was not overloaded with people which made it more comfortable and meant that, unlike other tours, we were not so crowded in the water that we were constantly getting kicked in the head by others. We went out on a relatively calm day and it was easy to keep up to the guide without becoming worn out.
These guys were hospitable, knowledgeable, and were able to answer every question the group asked. If you're looking for a fun, laid-back day where you don't feel rushed, this is the snorkelling trip for you!

We were walking along the main road in Caye Caulker, stopping in various huts and looking at the offerings for snorkeling when we came across "Steve's corner" where he hangs out when he is not out on his ship, the Blackhawk. He was fun to talk to and what he offered was a bit unusual & different than the rest of the places we had perused already. He does all-day trips of "sort-of sailing" (sail plus motor) out to the marine reserve and 2 other places. We signed up to go out the next day. The day was beautiful, the water was clear, and we all had a great time! Harry was our snorkeling guide; he would dive down, point out something particular, come up and tell us about it. He found amazing things! Steve fixed lunch while we were snorkeling and while we were sailing back, we had cerviche and the (now-famous) rum punch referred to in other posts. Very fun, very comfortable and perfect!

Took a full day snorkeling trip with the Black hawk sailing boat. Captain Steve and his crew, Chuckie, made it a funny experience with lots of stories and lots of Ceviche and rum-punch. Furthermore, looking at the over-crowded reggae muffin ship (competing tour company), we were more than happy to have embarked on the black hawk, enjoying the sun and the ocean with only 3 other tourists.

We fully recommend going with the Black Hawk for an original experience!

If you'd like to sail and go on snorkel tour to all the great places in hol chan and on reef but want to go with a smaller operation then Ragamuffin check out Captain Steve ( also AKA Big Steve on island) and Capt. Chucky's sailing tour. They're really reasonable, probably cause they don't do fancy" internet advertising and run a small office on front street kinda across from Pat and Stell- local rasta cafe. Super fun! good snorkel gear and boat, Happy hr rum punch on the way back and these are limited motor use and use full sails , making it an eco friendly option, Snorkeling with nurse sharks - harmless and the seat turtle was a highlights as well as having Chucky give us a tour and free dives pointing out eels and other rare fish etc.. check em out!
