Ambergris Caye, Belize Marine Wildlife
This is a family-friendly tour of the clear, Caribbean waters that surround Ambergris Caye. On this glass-bottom boat tour you’ll visit two hotpots for marine wildlife—Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley. You can choose from a morning or afternoon tour, both of which depart from the dock at Ramon’s Village.
The Belize Barrier Reef, at 186 miles in length is the second largest coral formation in the world. The Barrier Reef is made up of a mixture of hard and soft corals, with the hard corals mainly at deeper depths and the soft corals nearer the surface. Commonly seen are Brain and Staghorn Corals, Sponges, Seafans, Finger and Angular Corals.
Snorkeling at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve is a sure-fire way to experience Belize’s diversity of marine life up-close. Animals at Hol Chan are used to getting fed by people on boats, so they’re relatively bold around snorkelers. This spot gets a lot of marine traffic, and every minute you spend underwater you’ll get to see something new.
