Shark Ray Alley and Caye Caulker Beach Break by Boat

Calling all those who love the waters and seek adventure! Here is your chance to snorkel at one of the most popular dive sites in the Caribbean.

Hol Chan (Mayan for Little Channel), Belize's oldest marine reserve, is filled with three miles of spectacular coral formations, serene mangroves, and vigorous marine life. Enjoy a beautiful, scenic boat ride out to its reef and snorkel around the Quebrada, or cut in the reef, for an unparalleled snorkeling experience among large schools of groupers, barracudas, snappers and much more.

From there you will make your way to Zone D of the reserve where you can get up close and personal with friendly nurse sharks and stingrays. The rays have a wingspan of 2 to 4 feet and come directly up to divers in hopes of a food handout. The typically docile nurse sharks average 4 to 6 feet in length but can be a bit more aggressive than the rays.

Continue to Caye Caulker Island where you can relax on the beach and enjoy some local Belizean food for lunch. While here, take some time to participate in other Caye Caulker activities such as tarpon feeding.

Conclude your tour at the Belize Tourism Village where you can survey the handicrafts and pick up a souvenir or two on your way back to port.

This 5.5-hour Belize tour includes rum punch and is perfect for animal lovers as well as those who love the water. Reserve your spot today.

Excellent trip and amazing experience!

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.

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!
