This tour takes you on an off-the-beaten path picnic on the white, sandy shore of Robles Point. To whet your appetite, your first stop will be to go snorkeling around Mexico Rocks. After you’ve had a look around underwater, you’ll get to try to catch a few fish yourself with a traditional hook or a spear — whatever you catch, you can have for lunch (but don’t worry if you don’t catch anything, they’ve got you covered).

On the way to Robles Point, your guide will prepare a fresh ceviche out of conch or shrimp. As you travel, an in-season catch will marinate with some fresh seasoning. When you arrive, you’ll quickly learn that the island isn’t just a pretty beach. It’s also an interesting historical attraction – over 1,500 years ago, this island served as a Maya outpost. Today, you can see the walls built by the Maya buried in the underbrush. Walk up and down the beach to see what else you can find as your chefs prepare your lunch.
Your fresh seafood is served alongside tortillas, baked potatoes, chips, and coleslaw – you won’t leave hungry! After you’ve had your fill, you’ll begin your return journey. But before you arrive back at the dock, there’s one more stop at Mata Rocks for a final round of snorkeling around the Belize Barrier Reef. You'll arrive back at Ambergris Caye at 4 PM, making this a full day on the water.
Half Moon Caye is a 45-acre (18-ha) crescent-shaped island at the southern tip of Lighthouse Reef Atoll, an hour and a half off the coast of Belize City. Home to iguanas, red footed boobies, and a beautiful fringing reef, this area was set aside in 1981 as one of Belize’s first established nature reserves.
