A perfect trip for divers with non-divers to enjoy together, this tour features a 30-foot dive at Hol Chan combined with a snorkeling stop at Shark Ray Alley.
Mayan for “little channel”, Hol Chan Marine Reserve is arguably one of the most popular dive sites in the Caribbean, and certainly in Belize. Off the southern tip of Ambergris Caye, Hol Chan has flourished into a unique refuge, with robust coral formations and an abundance of marine life. This explosion of marine life is largely due to its protected status, promising a unique underwater experience for divers with its preservation of true, untainted sea life before man. This means endless sights of jacks, tarpon, snook, manta rays, and barracuda, just to name a few of the over 160 different species of fish identified at Hol Chan.
Then you will head to the nearby Shark Ray Alley, where you will snorkel and be able to get up close and personal with jubilant Nurse Sharks and Southern Sting Rays. Here, you will feel the excitement and novelty of swimming with large numbers of nurse sharks and sting rays.
This tour is the perfect way to start off your dive vacation and introduce you to the Caribbean waters, while enjoying all the spectacular sites Ambergris Caye has to offer. Snorkeling is perfect for beginners and experts alike, giving you the best of both worlds.
