For those guests arriving at Harvest Caye, Belize please see our Harvest Caye Excursions.

For anyone wanting something a little more off the beaten path, this might be just what you are looking for. Goff's Caye is a tiny little island that is perfect for families or anyone wanting to experience an outstanding opportunity to snorkel in Belize. Goff's Caye is only 1.2 acres of natural coral sand, making it only about the size of a football field!

You will meet your friendly and professional guide on shore at your Belize tender terminal. From there you will take a 20-30 minute boat ride to this amazingly beautiful and quiet island. While on your way to the island, you can't help spotting numerous mangrove islands which are home to an assortment of beautiful water birds such as the Brown Boobies, Cormorants, Terns and possibly the Frigatebirds. It is not uncommon to spot an occasional pod of bottle-nose dolphins as well!

Goff's Caye can only be described as your own little piece of paradise. Sitting directly on the world's second largest Barrier Reef, the snorkeling opportunities are endless. With the island actually being part of the coral reef, there is no need to jump in a boat and go anywhere else. The coral reef surrounds the island just a few feet off the beach. Whether it's working on your tan, building sand castles or simply enjoying the crystal blue waters, this tiny little island still offers the ultimate beach experience for everyone.

Going back to basics, there are no beach chairs. And please do not forget to bring your beach towels. You may also bring your own snacks if you like. Bottled water and a welcome rum punch will be provided. You will also be able to purchase food and beverages. Picnic style BBQ or Chicken Kabobs, grilled lobster tails, coconuts and cold beers are among your choices.

The snorkeling on this Goff's Caye excursion is awesome, so it's perfect for beginners and those who have experience. Of course, you are welcome to bring your own, but all snorkel gear is provided. Just hang out on the beach if you choose not to snorkel. Your guides will be there to assist you throughout the day and when the excursion comes to an end they will take you back to the Belize cruise ship terminal. Time on the island is approximately 3.75 hours.

Unique excursion! The little island is about a 30 minute boat ride out. Arrival thrills the soul - unexpected beauty. Amenities are primitively befitting the isle. Food and drink about the same. Snorkeling was great but water was a little rougher than expected, crew took great care to ensure everyone was watched over, and that a no swimmer was able to participate. Definitely a must do again when we can stay longer.

We went to Goff Caye recently, and it is pretty much as pictured. Lovely island with a great beach and a nice reef nearby. The ride out was long and choppy, so be aware. Once we arrived at the island our boat took us to the ocean side of it for snorkeling. While the reef did not blow us away like at other places (some of the coral was bleached, and the reef was sparser than other locations we seen), it was still a fun experience and the coral and fish were colorful as usual. Afterwards we had an hour and a half to relax on the beach lovely beach and drink rum punch. We also saw a flounder in the shallow areas. My biggest criticism is that they force you to use a life vest during the snorkeling, so you can't dive and get a closer look at the coral. They probably do this to prevent people from touching the coral and hurting it. The other issue is the lack of food options on the island, while I enjoyed the chicken and rice and beans, most of it used coconut which my wife can't eat due to allergy. Just be aware of this problem if you have food allergies. Overall, was an pleasant and enjoyable experience.

We had time to shop at the port before boarding the boat to ride out to the island. The boat ride felt long, but I think it was just because we were ready to be on the island. The water was amazing, the beach was good and the snorkeling was great. I would definitely recommend this for pretty much anyone. My husband and I, our 22 year old son and our 7 year old son all had a great time. The food for sale on the island was reasonably priced and delicious. So glad we spent our day on Goff's Caye!!!

This excursion was THE BEST EVER!!! We did this exact excursion on May 31, 2016 through this website. The tender boat took us from our cruise ship to Belite City and we went left down to I think it was #4 where we found the desk for this excursion. They gave us wristbands and we all got in a speedboat (me age 41, my daughters 16 and 20 and my friend age 63)along with about 20 other people plus 4 Belize guides. We rode in a speed boat at 930 am Belize time approx 30 mins away (not sure, didn't watch the time) to Goff's Caye where everyone got off the boat and changed, went potty, put on sunscreen or went somewhere to lay out and then approx 15 mins later everyone who was going to snorkel got back to the speedboat. The rest stayed on the island. My friend stayed and my 2 daughters and I went with the group who were going to snorkel. I was a brand new snorkelers and my 20yr old had never done it before either. My 16yr old had only tried it in Cozumel the day before. We geared up with the guides assistance and they lowered me into the water from behind cause I was scared and didn't want to jump in. We had life jackets on, snorkel mask and snorkelers along with fins. I brought 2 snorkel masks and snorkeler of my own for me and my 16yr old but the oldest used theirs. My youngest went with 1 group and the oldest and I were in another group. We started snorkeling like pros in the ocean in Belize and I was SOOO proud of myself and both my kids!! I couldnt see my youngest cause she didn't get in my group like she was supposed to but I trusted she was ok. We had at least 1hr or more to snorkel, see coral and fish galore, it was truly amazing!! We all loved it so much and I would do it again in a heartbeat! It's very physical tho as u are using yor arms and legs to swim through the water following the guides who swim off to show u specific coral and fish (they try) but its hard to keep up wits them sometimes but they wait for u. When u get tired just lean back and let ur life jacket float you while you get your breath and just soak in your surroundings. Seeing the coral and fish underneath you is so relaxing and peaceful!!! I SOOO loved this excursion and want to do it again ASAP!!! These guides are amazing and helpful too. He offered to let people go back to the speedboat if they were getting tired or just wanted to stop snorkeling. We didn't return with the 1st few who wanted to end it so the guide came back out to us and showed us more things to see. He was even willing to keep snorkeling after the hour (or longer, I really lost track of time) but later on my daughter and I did go bak to the boat. When everyone was back on it took off back to Goff's Caye where we stayed a few hours just chilling. They had food for purchase, some things they had for sale as souvenirs like wooden bowls handmade etc, jewelry, etc and free rum punch, water bags (not bottles, but in bags, very interesting!) And free fruit punch. I don't drink but I did try the run punch. Pretty good! The island is MAGNIFICENT and by FAR the BEST photos I got on all 4 islands we visited on this cruise. Goff's is so gorgeous, serene, magnificent...you will never want to leave! You will LOVE IT!!!!!!! At the end of like 4hrs I think it was they took us back in the speedboat for another fast and awesome ride back to Belize City and we got more water. It was such an amazing relaxing day with PERFECT weather!!!! Please tip these men also who are your snorkel guides and boat drivers. They are very attentive and very knowledgeable!!

Got off our cruise ship in Belize and the tour company was waiting for us at the dock. Nice folks, but crowded chaotic process. Once it was time for the boat to leave for Goffs Caye, they rounded up the crowd of people and escorted us to a water taxi. About 40 people were on our boat. The ride to Goffs Caye was a tad long and the water was rough,,,don't ride in the back of the boat. It seriously vibrates from the engine. The island was beautiful and remote. Right on a reef. We got off the tour boat, found our spot on the beach, set up camp. The tour took us back out in the boat to snorkel. The snorkeling was "ok",,,not as grand as I would have expected but we did see fish. Just not lots of them. We snorkeled from the boat back to the beach and proceeded to eat lunch. Decent food, local flavor, and lots of rum punch. My only complaint was the fact that this tiny island had 4 boats dropping people off. So by mid day it was mobbed with people. Other than that, it was a fun ride, beautiful beach, good snorkeling, tasty food and drink and excellent friendly staff. We would recommend this excursion to our friends.

My wife and I booked this excursion to teach her how to swim and snorkel. This Caye superseded our expectations 100 fold. The minute my wife put her head down in the water she was hooked. She had never even swam in a pool before but this little island was magical. All of the people there were beyond helpful and friendly. From the minute we checked in on the dock until we returned several hours later. This is one experience we will carry with us and talk about to our children, grandchildren and friends for many years to come. On all of our future trips to Belize we are definitely going to book this excursion. Don't let the price fool you, I have taken snorkeling and scuba excursions for 3 times the price of this one and didn't have half the fun... Don't miss this one guys... For Real, Jay Day

I was one of "those" people who said "I am not going into the water" as I was afraid of what was in it. As an Arkansas native...I absolutely love nature and I wanted to see what all of the "hype" was about Belize. As we pulled into port...I thought nice port shopping but water was NOT like all of the pics I googled over prior to arriving. My thought was the same...no one is talking me into getting in the water. After getting some good deals shopping...it was our turn to take off on our shuttle boat to Goff's Caye. Started off great. Our crew were so friendly n informative...I was floored with the map and types of marine life...yes including the MASSIVE whale shark. I was still thinking...no water for me. About 10 minutes out of port...water begins to look more familiar as in photos...pretty n blue but not AS pretty as pics. Warm water splashing...birds following...flying fish n then there it was! More beautiful than the pics. Jumped off the boat...crew trying to keep up to remind me to take off life vest. Lol. I had to be the first on the beAch! Husband talked me into packing snorkel gear...even though I was NOT EVER getting in the water. Let's just say that I know they had some vendors on the beach selling some really neat items; the grilled kabobs, lobster n shrimp smelled wonderful; guided snorkeling was beautiful; island was gorgeous (at least that's what my husband said)...I wouldn't know because I immediately put my snorkel gear on and spent entire 4 hours snorkeling on my own...just as I said I would NEVER do. I did manage to try the rum punch which was FABULOUS. I'm not a big drinker but that punch was hard to resist...I had several cups (tip these ladies n gentlemen well!!!!they deserve it!!!!) I did get a grilled lobster with corn and rice....it was really good as well. (Some "do's n dont's)...DO get water shoes-sand is beautiful but rough; do remember sunscreen-not much shade if you are afraid of sun; do take your own snorkel gear if you want to take off on your own n snorkel; don't forget extra money for the tasty food n drinks; DO use common sense n don't drink n go out in the deeper water; DO tip well because these guys n gals are fantastic; don't bother marine life...observe n awe over; DON'T book this excursion if you are not wanting an awesome experience. My husband and I went in December 2014 and are taking ten adult family members in November 2015! Want to share in the beauty and hospitality of Belize. Thank you shore excursioneer for a memorable experience. We used you for roatan and Cozumel last year and are using you again this year.

A quick boat ride out to Goff's Caye which was small and beautiful. We did not spend much time on the beach we loaded back up on the boat and out to the snorkel area. The staff was great and the equipment was good. Leon was our guide and he was amazing! He took his time to make sure we each comfortable and that we all got a look at the reef. He helped my mom back to the boat when she was too tired to swim. The food was good and then it was time to go. Make sure you wear good water shoes the sand is rough and the pier is long and there are some island ants :)

Our Group of 6 had such a blast. The snorkeling was great and the tour operators where fabulous and made the whole thing so much fun. We left two on the island while we went snorkeling and they enjoyed that rum punch enough to feel VERY good! The lobster served on the island is delicious and cheap! The rice was dry but who cares when you are in paradise! The boat was fast and comfortable. The island is about the size of a football field and there are picnic tables for you to sit out and eat. There is even a hammock to lounge the day away! We would do this excursion over and over again given the chance.

This was my first Snorkel experience as a 50+ year old. Always liked sitting on the beach but never wanted to go in the water. Was a bit apprehensive the closer I got to actually jumping of the boat.....but did it. What was I afraid of all these years? One of the funnest things I've done in years!!! The staff was excellent and all instructions were spot on. We had a lady (grandmother) in our party who was struggling at the beginning and one of the guides stayed with her the whole time we were in the water and she ended up loving it. Time in the water was just right and saw things I had only seen in pictures, "up close and personal"!! Time on the island was great and the food and atmosphere outstanding. Distance from shore is the only draw back as I wish we could have spent a couple more hours there but that's the lay of the land (sea). Would highly recommend this excursion especially for someone not sure about Snorkeling!!!

We arrived late for the scheduled excursion since the tender process took so long. They were very cool about it and let us take the next excursion with no problem (they were leaving every hour). The island is stunning!!!! The only issue was that there was not enough umbrellas and beach chairs. We were lucky enough to have them (for a fee) but others were in the direct sun for the entire time. The only recommendations would be to book less people (it was crowded) and to have more beach loungers and umbrellas.

My wife and I took this excursion this past April. When our boat first came into view of the island the gentleman across from me and I said the same thing---Wow! This island is gorgeous. It is only about the size of a football field but it is incredible. The water is various shades of blue and you feel like you are on Gilligan's Island. The food was good; the only problem was they ran out of the beef kabobs very quickly and the line was long for the food. My suggestion is eat early and you shouldn't have a problem OR bring your own food and drinks! The snorkeling was great and the guides on this excursion were top notch. Very friendly, very knowledgeable and they really seemed to enjoy what they were doing. My wife and I are going back to Goff's Caye next May. It is wonderful!

Did this tour 2 weeks ago and it was wonderful. We were picked up at the agreed time and everything as planned. The guides are very friendly and friendly, they speak almost no Spanish but they strive to be understood by people who do not speak English. Clean and crystal clear water to see fish and some starfish. If you do not have experience the guides make Snorkel very easy. The key is spectacular, a paradise. They sold chicken or lobster skewers at 8 and 10 USD, soft drinks and beer at a good price. I am travel agent and I recommend it 100%. Translated using Google Translate

This island was great - but getting there took a while. Take a note of the time difference with Belize and your ship. Ours was 2 hours difference. So we had to kill 2 hours with shopping. Not much to buy but mostly junk. I have read reviews how people felt unsafe at Belize port, but I didn't. Our boat that was suppose to come and pick us up came without life jackets so we had to wait on another boat to come bye which put us about 30 to 45 minutes behind. But as soon as I got to the island I forgot it all. Beautiful island, beautiful water, snorkeling was great (saw a manatee). Our guides on this tour were amazing and friendly. Didn't have a lot of time for rum punch but caught a little buzz before I went snorkeling. Also, to do this snorkeling I would recommend strong swimmers. Water is deep and you do have to swim a lot. Which we actually stayed out longer than the guides did. If I ever go back to Belize, I will defiantly go back to this little island. Could spend all day here. Saw dolphins jumping in our waves on the way back to the port. Absolutely recommend this excursion.

We learned about this trip on Trip Advisor and it was highly rated. After experiencing the tour, it is easy to know why it is so highly rated! One note is there may be a time difference between your ship & Belize. Belize does not do DST, so make sure to check the tour start time, once you get into port. Once we had the time difference figured out, it was a GREAT excursion. Leon was our tour guide, and he and his entire crew were excellent and took very good care of us! The water was pretty choppy getting out to the small island beach, and a little rough for the adults on the boat, but we had a young passenger with us that absolutely loved the bouncing around! The ride was about 35 to 40 mins. Once we reached the small island, we dropped our stuff on the beach and then got back in the boat to go out to the reef to snorkel, (about 1 minute away). We were fitted with masks and snorkels and fins, and got to snorkel in a large sized group for about 45mins. We had 2 guides in the water with us the whole time. And even though the water was a little choppy, the snorkeling was great and clear. There was plenty to see in the area, with lots of fish and coral reefs. After snorkeling, we came back to the island for rum punch and to hang out. We still had about 1 ½ hours to relax on the beach. The island and water are amazing & beautiful!! The beach is fantastic just to kick back and relax and the rum punch was flowing!! Rojo was a great bartender! You could purchase a lunch for about $8.00 with generous portions and it is cooked right there. This was a great way to spend a day and easy to see why it is so highly rated. The price is also very reasonable for all that they offer. We rarely do excursions not offered by the ship but we felt very comfortable and safe with this group. I would definitely do this excursion again.

This was an excursion from our cruise ship. While the swimming was excellent the overall experience was not. From the tender terminal to the Caye, you take an extremely bumpy 30 minute boat ride. Getting to this point, you enter a cattle call mall with several other tour companies and limited seating. At the point you get your wristband you can go outside and get a drink at one of the many loud dockside bars. Getting on the island you get a welcome rum punch that my wife found to be good. The amount of people this tiny island had visiting that day was ridiculous! Forget about getting a beer unless you want to wait a half hour due to one of the larger party cruise ships in port. We went past the throngs of swimmers and overwhelming smell of barbeque past where one was expected to swim. Only to be shouted at by the snorkel boats ferrying passengers to the smaller reef since the other side had rough surf that day. We kept swimming there anyway and really didn't impede the boats, our safety or thiers. There was some damage observed to the reef with broken sea fans and coral from the overuse and inexperienced snorklers standing with flippers in the shallows.I found the excursion staffs concern for my wife's back on the trip back to be genuine. The bouncing was difficult for her back and they stopped the boat and had her change seats, seeing that she was in pain.

First off- the crew on this excursion was fantastic. They were very accommodating to an older couple (in their 70's) and a young girl who needed extra assistance. Big group - so lots of guides made smaller groups (5-7) to snorkle with. Beautiful little island, and we did not feel at all crowded. Be careful if you bring a man who can't hold his liquor though...the free rum punches can be hazardous -though tasty! Bring snacks. The one minor disappointment- the lunch you could purchase on the island was just okay the day we went, and they ran out of food pretty quickly.

When we booked this excursion we were looking for the best of both worlds; snorkeling and relaxing and this excursion was exactly what we wanted. We tendered early in to port and found the excursion's meeting place. They gave us a wrist band and told us what time to come back so we were able to walk around the shops before we headed out the island. The ride to Goff's Caye didn't seem that long as we started a conversation with one of the crew and she told us all about Belize and the Mayan history. I found if you wanted to know something the crew was extremely willing to tell you all about their beautiful island. The snorkeling was great and the team was extremely organized. We went out in small groups and our guide even brought up some starfish for us to hold - they are not what I expected. Once back on the island, it is up to you on what you want to do; eat, relax, snorkel, swim or just people watch. One of the crew came over and talked to us. This was my son's first cruise and he came away from this excursion impressed how friendly and easy it was to talk to the crew. After the excursion we had time to do more shopping.

I was here in the start of September and it was a beautiful island. The water was so clear and blue and very refreshing. The food on the island was very good and the complimentary rum punch was amazing. My only complaint would be the ride to the island. After tendering out to the island (approximately 25 minutes) you need to get on another small boat to bring you to this private island. This ride also takes about 45 minutes and is a very bumpy ride. The staff on the boat was very funny and made the best of this long ride. If you don't mind the boat then I will say give this island a shot as it wont be a disappointment. We had a BLAST!!

Really Cool Reef

We didn't spend much time on the island as we spent most of our time snorkeling. This was the first time snorkeling for all of us (2 adults and 2 children between ages 9 - 13). Seeing the reef was amazing, but I will say you should be a fairly good swimmer. It is deep water and we swam a LOT! Tiffin did a great job with our family and our two young children as well as watching over the group.

Belize is a tender port so you do have to wait a bit longer to make sure everyone has made it from the ship to the cruise terminal but there is plenty of shopping and places to eat in the terminal so it is quite lovely. Once everyone had made it to the terminal, we got on a boat for a ride to this tiny island. It was AMAZING!!! This island is a gorgeous place to relax for the day. The snorkeling is awesome and the tour guides are so nice. Some locals were on the island grilling chicken kabobs which you could purchase, they were delicious! We were super happy with this excursion!!

A beautiful place to go. Wish we could have stayed longer. The guides were very informative and entertaining. I am not the best swimmer so when our 3 year old decided she had to ride on my back the staff was extremely helpful until I could get adjusted. They made sure she got to see the things that could get brought to the surface and that she was included.

This excursion was amazing! I have snorkeled in a lot of places but this by far was the best. Shortly after we arrived on this gorgeous little island it was our turn to snorkel. Our guide Claudios pointed out and named everything we saw. He was great! We saw a school of blue fish being followed by a barracuda by the drop off. After snorkeling we were able to relax, have lunch and enjoy the beauty around us. The only down side is we had to leave. I have to say I was leery of booking outside the cruise ship so I only booked two but next time I plan on using shore excursioneer for all of them. The tours seemed less crowded than the ones booked thru the cruise line.

What an amazing time. We could not have been more surprised or pleased with our private excursion to Goff's Caye. The kids and everyone else had an amazing time. We were blessed with such wonderful tour guides.
