Your tour begins with a boat ride to Swallow Caye, one of the few places where you can see manatees in the wild. The West Indian manatee is highly endangered and at one point neared extinction. Next, you’ll head to Goff’s Caye for snorkeling around a reef where you can see tropical fish. Once you start feeling peckish, relax on the beach while your guides prepare lunch.
After your picnic, you’ll don your snorkeling gear once again to see the sharks and rays that swim near the shore. Then it’s time to get back in the boat to begin the return journey. To cap off the tour, you’ll stop at Caye Caulker to explore the small island’s unique Caribbean culture and shops.
Frequented by cruise ship passengers and day-trippers from Belize City and Caye Caulker, Goff’s Caye is a tiny palm-covered island about 30 minutes off the coast of Belize City. Islands like Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker offer a fun beach scene, but Goff’s Caye allows you to truly sink in to the Belizean Caribbean without any distraction, on an excursion with just a few other visitors. It’s right near the Belize Barrier Reef, giving you the chance to observe a bit of marine wildlife on a snorkeling excursion.

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.
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.
