This part of the reef sits between Silk Caye, Laughing Bird Caye, and Pompion Caye. Sea turtles, manta rays, and nurse sharks are common sights in this part of the Caribbean. Around the reef, you’ll see fascinating, colorful schools of fish darting in and out of the coral.
Best of all, your experienced guide will be able to take you to the best possible spot given the conditions on the day of your tour – seasons and weather can impact what you can see. It takes about an hour and 45 minutes to reach the reef from Placencia, but travel time can vary on which part of the 185-mile (297 m) long reef system you want to visit. Your guide will also take into account what your group most wants to experience.

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.
