Belize's top snorkeling and diving site, Hol Chan Marine Reserve dazzles with its impressive coral formations and diverse marine life. Its reefs shelter a dizzying variety of creatures, including 40 types of coral and 160 different species of fish. This thriving underwater kingdom also provides a home for several mammals, including pantropical spotted dolphins and short-beaked common dolphins. The marine reserve encompasses mangroves and beds of sea grass, which ensure a safe habitat for southern stingrays and nurse sharks. You can get up close to both of these species, as they're quite used to visiting tour boats.

  • This trip visited two places; the hol chan marine reserve and shark/ray alley. The snorkeling with the sharks and manta rays was fantastic, and there were a lot of fish around. Very good trip!

  • Ok guys if you want an epic experience you have got to add this to your list of things to do. I have done this so many times in the past 5 years. I take every person I can out to do this as it is one of the best experiences ever. The guides are always amazing. It is worth every penny you will spend on this.
  • It was a beautiful place to snorkel. The water was clear, and so many fish, a green back sea turtle, and sting rays. The lre was a bit of a current, but the guide was wonderful. He kept a good pace and pointed out so many types of fish and coral. Definitely bring an underwater camera or waterproof pouch! I wish I had. But the memories are forever in my mind.
