Overview

Snorkel among the vibrant coral gardens of the world’s second-largest barrier reef on a day trip from Belize City. Cruise across the cool blue Caribbean to a spot with shallow depths and clear waters, ideal for admiring colorful sea fans, finger coral, and sponges teeming with fish. At a second stop, dive into waters churning with throngs of (harmless) nurse sharks and sting rays, and then reward your bravery with rum punch and a beach break on the laid-back island of Caye Caulker.
  • Swim and snorkel along Belize's famous barrier reef
  • Learn about the formation of old and new coral as you explore intricate undersea gardens
  • Safely swim up close to nurse sharks and sting rays at Shark Alley
  • Check out the beach vibes of nearby Caye Caulker along the way

FULL REFUND requested
Tim_G
, Jul 2022
REQUESTING a full refund. The guides never showed up. They never contacted us. the only way we found out is that we pursued them to find that they were not showing. We ended up figuring out how to do it on our own.

Trip didn't happen :(
Sara_R
, Jul 2022
The company did not show up, nor notified us of a cancelation. Locals suggested that it may have been because a cruise ship that was supposed to come in did not, and thus the snorkel trip may have been canceled. Poor business practices. We took the ferry to Caye Calker instead, which was also disappointing.

We were supposed to go on the snorkeling excursion,, the tour rep never picked us up and sent someone else that wasn't a part of the tour to let us know it was overlooked. We were very disappointed. This was the only thing we planned to do.

Great excursion
Taylor_S
, Apr 2022
Super fun excursion!! We were supposed to start at 9 and ended up getting on the boat by 9:45 ish. We drove by boat for 40 min to caye caulker island and ordered lunch for later. We then drove out from that island 5 min away to snorkel the huge reef and I have to say, it was beautiful. I’ve snorkeled a lot, all over the world and this was the best snorkeling I’ve ever done. The reef is HUGE!! The guides are very knowledgeable and will share alot of info about Belize, as well as the wildlife in the water. The first stop for snorkeling was about 45 min. After we saw the reef we drove about 10 min from there and met the nurse sharks and sting rays. They fed them right before we all hopped in the water so they would swarm us. It was amazing and we were there for about 20 min. I would never usually book a snorkeling excursion bc you can do that anywhere for free, but swimming with the sharks made it so worth it. After we snorkeled, we went back to caye caulker and ate lunch (had about 50 min) and walked around a little. There wasn’t much to see in the area where we ate lunch. Overall this was a GREAT excursion hosted by amazing people!!

Unreliable who cancels at the last minute
Nora_B

Do not use this company!!! They canceled on us at 9pm the night before. We thought it was because of the weather so we rebooked later in the week. They sent us our ticket and confirmed our pick-up spot. They canceled on us at 4am when we were supposed to get picked up at 8:30am. They are unreliable.

Stacy and crew were great, BUT, we lost time when they waited over an hour for a group. Then they had to pick up a couple that was late again so my wife and I lost a lot of time at the ports. That might stop future recommendations in the future

Best excursion, by far
Jose_P

We waited for an hour before leaving the dock. However, once we left, everything was more than excellent. From the very friendly and competent Nathalie and crew, the snorkel site was perfect, the sharks and rays were everywhere. Lunch time at a quiet little restaurant and back to shore. Perfect, just perfect

Not happy
Beth_H
, Dec 2021
Tour got started 45 minutes late.then an hour to go somewhere to pre order lunch then out to first place to snorkel. It was more than 2 hours before we were actually snorkeling. Very short time in the water before heading to the next spot also short time in water because we had to hurry to get back to the ship. There was supposed to be a shuttle back to the tenders but never showed had to take a taxi back in order to get back in time at our expense. I know we lost 45 minutes of snorkeling time do to late start 90 percent of excursion Time was not snorkeling.

Highly Recommend!

We had an amazing day with Stacy as our tour guide. She was very personable and made the boat trip lots of fun. She was in the water with us sharing her knowledge of the various sea creatures. We had some extra time to explore the island and didn't feel rushed to return to Belize City. I would definitely recommend this excursion and would hope that you're lucky enough to have Stacy as your guide!

We had an amazing time on this tour. We snorkeled one of the best reefs in the world, fed/swam with sharks, and get to check out a sweet island. I would recommend this tour vs. booking through a crush. Finding the location was a breeze and they got us back to our ship in time.

Sharks, Rays & Caye Calker
Wendy_M

Everything was perfect! Our children had never been snorkeling & I’m not very good at it, but Stacey even got me snorkeling. We all loved playing/swimming with the Sharks & Rays. Then a nice lunch & time to relax at Caye Calker. Marjorie, Stacey & Patrick were wonderful hosts.

Mark and his team were great! It was easy to get to the boat from the cruise ship, but they also gave a ride. We were one of the first off the ship, so we did end up waiting for a bit. Once on the boat, it was a wonderful ride to Caulker Caye; fast boat and small group size so we had plenty of space. The places they took us were incredible, and they did a great job leading us. You even get to feed leaping fish! The lunch was traditional Belize, and we had time after lunch to explore the Caye.

Snorkel & private island
Michael_B
, Feb 2020
Well, we got stuck on board the cruise ship editing to tender in and missed our excursion, but we were offered another excursion and took it. It was amazing!!! We went to Goff’s Caye. It’s a small 1/2 acre island. It had the best snorkeling and food! We got a private snorkeling tour from Felix. He is awesome! Took us right over the edge of the reef. Best snorkeling ever! Patrick was out boat captain! Both of these guys did an amazing job. Definitely recommend this excursion. It is a 35 minute boat ride but well worth it! Definitely recommend Splash Wave Tours!
