Explore Goff's Caye on this Belize tour

It's the Belize you won't believe! After meeting your guide for this Belize shore excursion, you will board a comfortable 38-foot powerboat for the 30-minute ride to the tropical island of Goff's Caye and its neighboring extraordinary reef. Along the way, you will pass mangrove islands, which are natural habitats for brown boobies, cormorants and terns. Occasionally, bottlenose dolphins are spotted.

If you are looking for a fancy beach resort, this is not the Belize tour for you. However, if you're thinking more along the lines of a deserted island, then this is the spot. This unspoiled, powdery sand caye is a natural coral sand island, making it the ultimate beach experience for the entire family! Kids can build their dream sand castles or simply splash in the shallow, turquoise-blue waters.

Goff's Caye sits directly on top of the world's second-largest barrier reef, making it an ideal location for a world-class snorkeling experience with your Belize tour guide. After stopping at the beach for those wanting to wade ashore, the boat will reposition to the nearby reef for optional snorkeling. Here you will see coral formations alive with tropical fish in crystal-clear shallow waters. Snorkel gear is included in this Belize excursion.

When you're finished with snorkeling, take a break on the island with its rustic charm. Here you will not find the overdeveloped, crowded mob scenes of a resort, but a tropical island with just the basics, so you can enjoy a day in paradise "lost."

The island is approximately 1.2 acres. There are no beach chairs; here you spread your towel out on the white sand beach or under a swaying palm. There are no restaurants, either; locals are here selling B-B-Q, chicken kabobs, or even grilled lobster tails (when in season). They also offer cold beers, sodas and coconuts for sale (food items are not included in the tour price). Facilities on the island are very basic. Rum punch is served after the snorkeling.

Please Note: Although Goff Caye does not get the several thousand guests that some of the more developed "beach clubs" sold by the cruise lines do, it is only 1.2 acres and on multiship days, may get several hundred guests. This is not a private deserted island experience. It is a "what the Caribbean was like 30 years ago" experience.

Great excursion to a tiny island with all you need. Plenty of staff, a long boat ride from shore in safe powerboat, great snorkeling in crystal clear waters accompanied by guides. A couple of restaurants and vendors with great food and cheaper drink prices than on shore. This was the highlight of our cruise, we would go back if the opportunity arises.

Reviewer: Guy Marois
A paradise island. Small and not to crowded. Beer and food at an affordable price. Nice for swimming. Didn't do snorkeling but friend of us did and apparently very nice. Take at least half hour to get there. Recommended

5 StarsBest Last Minute Excursion Ever!!February 16, 2018

Reviewer: Patrick C.
From the minute we got onto the small speed boat that took us to Goff Caye I could tell that the crew was professional!! every one of the crew was very knowledgeable and inviting! you could tell that they were excited to be bringing us to their "office" and I must say that "the office" was the best I had ever seen, yes the island was a bit small and we had to flush the toilets with water from a bucket that was taken from the ocean but they made us feel so at home from the time they picked us up to the time they dropped us off. the crew treated us with respect and looked out for our safety for the duration of the excursion. these people are the best in the business and they will take great care of you if you chose this excursion!! thanks to the entire crew for the wonderful experience!! keep crushing it!!
