Spend your cruise ship stop in Belize in and on the water. Snorkel the reef and get up close with some of the underwater tropical beauty. The reef is teeming with over 250 species of fish, colorful hard and soft coral, and native marine life.

You’ll meet your guide just outside your Belize cruise tender terminal who will lead you to the boat's pier just a 2-minute walk. A 45-minute boat ride takes you to the island of Caye Caulker. This narrow island is the second largest in Belize at 5 miles in length and 1/2 mile in width. It’s divided in two by a narrow channel with a sandy beach. The south has Caye Caulker Village and the north has a dense mangrove forest and diverse protected bird life. You’ll disembark to watch and maybe take part of hand feeding the protected Tarpon fish that can grow to over 300 lbs.

Back on board the boat, you’ll be given your snorkel equipment with safety and usage instructions. A short ride gets you to Shark Ray Alley for your first snorkel. This is a 45 minute guided snorkel and you’ll be swimming with harmless stingrays and nurse sharks. Both the rays and nurse sharks are accustom to humans and are not aggressive. You may even be able to touch one with your guide's supervision. The water here is waist deep so if you prefer not to snorkel you can stand and have them swim around you.

The next snorkel spot  is at Coral Gardens, a short boat ride away. This spectacular part of the world’s second largest coral reef is alive with colorful fish, coral, sponges and marine life. The water is crystal clear and you’ll be able to see beautiful coral formations like elkhorn, staghorn and pencil coral flourishing in amongst yellow sponges and purple sea fans. This is another 45 minutes guided snorkel. Please note that guests will be snorkeling off the boat in deep water so will not be able to stand on the bottom.

You’ll then head back to Caye Caulker where you’ll have approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes free time. In this tiny former fishing village, you can find cafes, stores and food carts to purchase beverages and lunch. You can poke through the shops, swim and relax on the beach or explore the island.

When time comes to and end, the boat will take you back to your Belize cruise port to catch the tender back to your ship.

Times are approximate. Order of stops may be reversed depending on crowds and weather conditions.

Big adventure!

We had a lot of fun and adventure, fast boat trip, with Natalie and the other guides we felt safe snorkeling with sharks and stingrays. Sadly the reef is not as nice as we hoped, and the group with 16 guests was too big for the boat and for snorkeling. Caye Caulker is a very lovely and relaxed place. It was a great trip!

2nd time and still loved it as much as the first
     5/5  January 2020
Friendly knowledgeable guides. The only thing I would say is the restaurant they take you to is over priced and actually give you a \"cruise ship\" menu which is higher then the regular one at Caye Calker but you don't have to eat there. Everything else was great.

We had the best time! Snorkeling with Natalie and our wonderful crew was the best! They were very helpful with the people on our tour that were not as comfortable with snorkeling and equally able to make it exciting for the experts with us. This was the second time I have been on this tour and it was even better than the first!

This was one of the best excursions I've ever experienced. The guides were so awesome and knowledgeable. I have snorkeled many times and been disappointed but these guys showed us how to make it work even of the water is choppy. I loved it and all of the sea life we got to experience!

I absolutely recommend this excursion.(They) were very organized and put us at easy from the moment we met them. Natalie, Sherwin and \"Too Tall\" were our tour guides. Natalie's knowlegde of diving, her country and it's animals was impressive. Sherwin and Too Tall were patient and graciuos with us. They encouraged the fearful and timid around the animals. And helped those who fell behind while snorkeling. If I'm lucky enough to visit this beautiful county again i will definately use them again.

Outstanding Excursion!!

Our party of 11 was totally delighted with the outcome of this excursion. Natalie and her crew were the greatest!!! They made the day fun and memorable, as well as provided us with a safe, well-guided experience. Though the boat ride was long, we enjoyed every minute of it, laughing and drinking in the beautiful world around us. The sharks and rays were so cool, the snorkeling spectacular and the local lunch was a treat! Thank you, Nats, for a day we will never forget!!!

Un-Belize-able, a must do!!!!
     5/5  December 2019
First, we were off the boat an hour early, but the world's most amazing tour guide, Natalie, took us to get breakfast. We went to the most amazing place next to the raddison. Great food and world's best coffee. While there, Natalie explained so much to us about Belize! She knew so much about her country and explained its history and could facts. She also explained the currency to us! She also told us some cool.stories from her 19 years of experience as a tour guide! While waiting on the dock for the boat, she found us some shade but called us over when she saw a Mom and Baby dolphin so we wouldn't miss out. The boat ride was scenic and both Natalie and our Captain Emerson pointed out lots of points of interest along the way! Best guided snorkel ever!! Natalie is basically a mermaid and showed us all kinds of cool.for.ations, named all the fish, and even alerted an eel for us to see. She also dove down and brought us a starfish AND she rescued a woman who got herself stranded over a fire coral because she's not only a mermaid but also a rescue diver. She also helped my husband with his googles he had issues with. When we got back to the boat we had fresh pineapple and water that Emerson prepared for us. Shark Ray alley was insane! So cool and Natalie made us so comfortable. A once in a lifetime experience. Caye Caulker was amazing, the restuarant was authentic, delicious, and SUPER affordable! Some if the best seafood I've ever had!!! Good drinks too. There's a rum cake and ice cream shop in front of the restaurant and it's also super cheap and one slice of cake is like 3 pieces. THEN we went and fed tampons by hand!!! Great instructions and were super patient with us scaredy cats! Overall, it was amazing because of what we did but also who.we did it with! Wouldn't have been the same without Natalie and Emerson! Based on this experience, we will definitely go back to Belize. Beautiful country and super friendly locals!!! Oh, and home to the best tour guide ever of course!
