Shark Ray Alley and Caye Caulker Beach Break by Boat
This was extraordinary adventure
March 28, 2023
This excursion was more than expected. We actually swam with the sharks and stingrays! What a wonderful experience. The barrier reef was great with all the colorful coral and different species of fish. To top it off, we got to feed the Tarpon by hand if one wanted to, which I did! The lunch was very good, also. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone.

Great boat ride. Stopped to order lunch that would be ready after snorkeling. Snorkeled with nurse sharks and stingrays! Lots of them. Crew were fun and knowledgeable! Really had a great day! Would go back if in Belize.
Fun excursion with a great local feel

We loved snorkeling with the sting rays and nurse sharks swimming all around. We saw lots of fish snorkeling the reef. The best part was lunch on Caulker Caye. Great local spot on a remote island. We had grilled lobster and fish sitting outside at a quaint very local restaurant looking at the beach and watching an iquana scurrying around the beach. Guides were fun and informative.

We joined this tour and were very pleased with the snorkeling and seeing the sharks and rays up close! The animals were very active and fun to see swimming around us. The boat ride was a bit bumpy, but if you don't mind a speedboat ride you should be good. The included lunch was good and because I saved my excursion description I could prove it was included (other people who got tours through another vendor had trouble). Overall great guides who were knowledgeable and pleasant!

The tour operator met us outside the cruise port and they took us to the tour boat. Jetting off to Caye Caulker (about a 45 mins ride), we first docked to place our food orders in advance with the local restaurant. They had a variety of food options but we went with the local meal which was excellent. After, we all jumped back on the boat and went out to the first snorkel spot. The reef was beautiful and the guides did their best to show us native conch, lobsters and various types of fish. We then went out to shark ray alley to swim with the nurse sharks and rays. Amazing! Afterwards, we went back to the island to have lunch. We were lucky to have 45 mins after eating to walk around this beautiful island. Finishing up, we all jumped back onto the boat to feed tarpon right outside the island. Very cool experience! Totally wiped out, we headed back to Belize City after an amazing day of fun in the sun. Highly recommend this experience!

We really enjoyed our excursion to Shark Ray Alley. The staff was well experienced, friendly and knowledgeable. Lots of time in the water. Lunch at Caye Caulker was also very good.
Safe and fun

I know swimming with sharks sounds dangerous. But really, it was harmless. You could stand in the water, the rays had no stingers, and the sharks are small with no bite. The seagull however did prick my finger when I fed it a bait sardine. I would give this an excellent tour but two things bugged me. The water time on the reef was short and with a gaggle of people (25). It made my family feel safe but i prefer small intimate groups (5). 2nd, the lunch provided is just rice and beans. You have to order your entree if you want a real lunch. So bring some cash.

Excellent adventure! Guides were great and helped everyone see the sharks and rays. Water was rough that but we did everything that was listed and more. They took us to the reef as well. Lots of time in the water. Had a nice lunch on Caye Caulker and then headed back for a nice return on the boat. The captain spotted a pod of dolphins and took the time to let everyone enjoy seeing them. We spent several minutes with the dolphins circling the boat. Wow!

We loved the snorkeling here and had a great time! Although we appreciate the safety focus, we have never snorkeled with life jackets and it was required. However, when I complained (lightly) one of the guides took it for me. Reefs were beautiful and saw so much. The guide swam down and coaxed a big eel out of its crevice, that was cool. Also got to feed big fish, and the rays and sharks stop was very cool! A little unorganized getting going, somehow there were to many people booked for the boat that would take us to site, but it worked out okay.

This excursion was so packed with things to do that it was amazing and the price value was amazing. Long speedboat ride through mangroves, great snorkeling at reefs and then with sharks and stingray, feeding tarpons (from the boat), eating local food at a small beach restaurant. Action packed day with great snorkeling!

Shark Ray Alley and Caye Caulker Beach Tour

Our boat tour for snorkeling and lunch at Caye Caulker was excellent. The tour guides were amazing. Three out of the four guides were in the water with us during the first snorkeling location. Their instructions were very helpful. Lunch at Caye Caulker was also very good. I wish we had more time to spend on the island!

This tour is time and money well spent. The boat ride out to the reef was fast no time to get sea sick. The snorkling was fun the reef was good. The shark feeding was intense it was definitely a bucket list moment to be in amongst it. We all felt safe the whole time. Lunch at Caye Caulker Beach was really good.

We had an absolute blast on our tour! We had Natalie and her team; they were fantastic! The water was clear and we were able to se an abundance of fish and coral! We then left to see the sharks and rays. WOW, what an exciting experience! We were able to swim with over 20 sharks and 20 sting rays. She let us touch one of the rays. When we went to the beach break and had lunch, it was amazing! The food tasted great and my picky husband even enjoyed it. Thank you for the great experience!

I read reviews before every excursions, this one had pretty good ones. I honestly loved this. The only thing I could complain about is it didn't feel long enough in the water but that was just because of how much fun we were having. The reef was beautiful!!! It was amazing to swim with the sting rays and sharks. We were able to touch and swim with the sting rays but I wasn't able to touch the sharks. They were to deep for me to go touch them, It was getting ready to rain so we didn't have much time anyways. I highly suggest that if you are a older couple that has trouble getting in and out of a boat you might not want to try this one. We had an amazing time. If you are looking for something to do in Belize I highly suggest this!!!

Was safe the entire time. 45 minute boat ride on a smaller boat so take Dramamine to be safe. We did get to see both nurse sharks and stingrays. I got to touch a couple of the nurse sharks, but did not get to touch/hold a stingray so I was a little bummed about that. There were probably 30+ nurse sharks and 5 stingrays in the water near us when they started feeding them from the back of the boat. It was amazing and intense at the same time being in the water with that many large creatures. Unforgettable experience, strongly recommend doing it. Even my girlfriend who was terrified to do it said it was awesome and more safe than she expected.

We are so happy we chose the Shark Ray Alley and Caye Caulker Beach Break by Boat excursion. It was money well spent, and we would do it again. The tour guide was knowledgeable, informative, and fun. We saw some really cool fish, sharks, rays, eels, dolphins, turtles, manatees, and more. She told us about all of them. All of the staff made this fun and exciting. We highly recommend this excursion!!!
