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 an 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.

Amazing experience!

My husband and I went on this excursion during our Carnival cruise. We had never been to Belize before. Natalie & Stacey were our two guides (with the help of another local Dennis). Natalie was extremely knowledgeable and trained in diving. Stacey was very helpful and knowledgeable as well. They not only told us about what we would be doing but, also about their culture, language, food, etc. I would 10000000% do this again! Caye caulker was gorgeous as well.

Natalie is our HERO!!
     5/5  April 2022
We have to give this a MORE than 5 star review. Ms Natalie was a seriously amazing miracle worker and awesome guide! Natalie met us the morning of our tour, it was raining, so she took us to a comfortable hotel to wait for the rest of our party. Once on board the boat, we met up with another group that was doing the same tour with another company. That group's guide did most of the talking, but Natalie made sure she spoke to US directly and took care of us. My husband doesn't swim, so we told her right away, she looked at him and just said "I got you." We got to the spot, all of the group jumped in and snorkelled with the other guide, and Natalie devoted everything to my husband. We have tried for YEARS to try get over his fear of big water...Natalie DID IT!! She took control and made him feel SO SAFE, he was finally able to snorkel in water he couldn't stand in. For that alone, we are deeply grateful. She also made a point to allow us to see the Nurse Sharks and Rays, up close as the eater was murky. Can't wait to go back and see Natalie again!!

Natalie, Natalie, NATALIE, words or reviews can never show you how much you made this trip beyond OUTSTANDING!!!!!!. From greeting us right away at the port to your knowledge of your country and the reef, you kept us engaged and entertained but you also made sure we were comfortable and with us at all times. The fact that you got my brother who is ok with water but is NOT ok with swimming to go in and actually SNORKEL is the best highlight, the confidence you gave him can never be repaid but know it is all because of YOU he snorkeled on his own in Cozumel!!! Don't get me wrong the snorkeling and sea life we got to witness was beautiful, the sharks and rays that you grabbed so we could touch them are memories that will last a lifetime and we are so excited to come back and visit again. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU

We judt got home from our cruise and did this excursion during our Belize port day. Natalie, Nathan and Too Tall were our guides and were amazing! There were 18 of us in our group, so it didn't feel crowded. Natalie was great at helping us see specific marine life, and Nathan filled us in on the history and life in Belize. The only thing I wish we had done differently is eat lunch at one of the local street food vendors.

     5/5  July 2022
Natalie and her crew awesome. Natalie is so kind and extremely professional. She told us all kinds of interesting information about her island and stayed connected the entire time. Not to mention her diving experience and knowledge. You will be in great hands! Upon arrival, we were easily directed to the meeting area because the instructions were spot on. We arrived early, so our group was allowed to wait in a hotel lobby until the departure time. The hotel had free wifi, and food or drink for purchase. Once we began the excursion, there was about a 30 minute boat ride out to the Cayecaulker island. Once we arrived there, we pre-ordered food at a nice restaurant, then got our snorkeling gear. We were allotted approximately one hour swimming with the sharks and rays before we headed out to the coral reef for snorkeling. There we spent about an hour too. Afterwards, we returned to the restaurant where our delicious food was waiting for us. Throughout the rides in the boat, we were offered fresh watermelon, pineapple, bananas, and rum punch or water! We were left with about one hour to explore cayecaulker island before we headed back. All in all, the trip lasted about 5 hours and we returned to the port about one hour before the last tender boat left.

Big adventure!
     5/5  January 2020
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.

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!!!

     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!

Everything about this excursion was amazing, from the boat ride to the beach break. Our group really had a fantastic time and would recommend it to anyone. The guides were informative and we had plenty of time at each location. The lunch we had at the beach break was tasty and plenty to fill everyone up.
