You’ll start this Belize Sea Turtle Snorkel Excursion right at your Belize cruise ship tender terminal. After greeting your English speaking shore excursion guide. You’ll be taken to a comfortable boat where the friendly crew and captain will be waiting to welcome you on board. The size of the boat will depend on the number of guests participating on the excursion on this particular day and departure time.

Sit back and relax as you glide through the blue Caribbean water on your way to the Chapo’s Turtle Garden, a reef just one mile south of the famous Belize Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Hol Chan means "Little Channel" in Mayan. The area just off Ambergris Caye is known for its coral reefs and abundant marine life. Travel time in the boat will be approximately 55 minutes.

Along the way you’ll receive your snorkel equipment including snorkel, mask, fins, and an optional life vest. Once you’re at Chapo's Turtle Garden, the guide will accompany you into the water and will point out areas of interest so you don’t miss a thing. There will always be one guide for every 8 people to ensure the fun and safety for all. Snorkeling time will be 45 minutes so there’s no need to feel rushed. Chapo's is a regular hang-out spot for turtles. Your guide will give you the tips and rules for getting close and snorkel with the sea turtles. Although sightings are never guaranteed, the chance of spotting them at these two locations is excellent!

During the boat ride to the second Belize sea turtle snorkel site, the crew will serve cold sodas or bottled water. Your next stop will be at the Hol Chan Turtle Grass site. This sea turtle habitat and is the best way to view these amazing creatures, in the wild. The water here is approximately 10-30 feet deep, depending on where you snorkel, but a guide will be with you to make sure you’ll enjoy the waters safely. Relax and snorkel with the turtles for another 45 minutes as you experience this lovely world beneath the surface. You can return to the boat anytime, of course. An underwater waterproof camera is a good way to capture your moments snorkeling with the sea turtles on this unique Belize Shore Excursion. Note that among some of the marine life you might see are some of the local nurse sharks or rays. These are harmless creatures that are used to interacting with humans daily. Your guide will be by your side at all times.

Your last stop is just 15 minutes away. Caye Caulker is a lovely little rustic island with friendly people and few unique little stores. You can lounge next to the sea in comfortable beach chairs, or walk around, swim, explore, shop, whatever you want to do. Guests can also purchase food and drinks from the Belizian local restaurant, approximately $10.00 USD per person. Enjoy 1.5 hours on this quaint island and experience that laid-back tropical feeling.

Finally, the boat will take you back to your Belize cruise ship tender terminal. Transportation back is approximately 1 hour, relax and enjoy a rum punch, soda or cold water served by the Sea Turtle Snorkel Excursion crew.

Good guides, good snorkel
     4/5 Visited in February 2018

Having done numerous excursions, we can say this was pretty good. Our guide was where the instructions said he'd be on time. We walked two blocks to the dock and checked in fine. The waves were choppy, but the staff of four made sure everyone got in the small boat safely. Stacey was our tour guide and had so much information about the country. She was fabulous! Remember to bring a hat or bandana for the wind out at sea! We stopped at Cay Caulker for a bathroom break and to place our food orders if you desired, then got back in the boat and headed toward the reefs. Again, Stacey and staff were wonderful about explaining the equipment and helping everyone in. We did not see any turtles, but that's nature. The weather, the season, it happens. In three stops, we did see the nurse sharks, several stingrays, an eel, and Caribbean fish. Know that as long as you treat this animals with respect, there is nothing to worry about. They're simply beautiful. Stacey guided us around different areas of coral and shared her knowledge, while another guide kept the group together from behind. There was probably no more than 15 in the group. Back at the island, prepare to spend $15-$20 for a plate and drink. The atmosphere is like a postcard, and there is quiet shopping one street behind the restaurant. It's a long boat ride there and back, but it's a wonderful little slice of the country.

Lots of ocean life!

We LOVED this excursion. There was a TON of coral, fish, sharks, and all sorts of sea life at the first stop. At the second stop there were so many more sharks and sting rays than we expected. They were super friendly and let you pet them. The only complaint I have is that the "beach break" wasn't really a beach you could swim at. More of a fishing/boating beach and pier. It was still absolutely beautiful and the food was great as well! The staff/crew were really friendly and helpful. They spent the whole boat ride both ways explaining their country and culture to us. I definitely recommend this excursion to anyone considering it!

Wow! We had a fabulous day with added bonuses! We not only saw awesome coral, beautiful fish, a long barracuda, and a huge loggerhead sea turtle but the guides, Gareth and Nelson, added in a stop to swim with nurse sharks! We got to watch them eating and some huge rays showed up as well! Plus the (speed) boat ride was fun getting out to the sites. Thanks Alex and Austin! Cay Caulker was charming and lunch was pretty tasty too. All in all a very memorable day.
