    Great experience! The sailboat was lovely, staff was fun and friendly. Snorkeling was great and guide knowledgeable. Fresh cold face towel after snorkeling was a nice tough. Fresh fruit and ceviche was so good. Plenty of drink choices. Shark ally was cool and it was nice to explore Caye Caulker. Miss communication the first day, so it was bumped to the next which was no bid deal. I would just confirm morning of to make sure it’s still on and give yourself extra time, parking is horrible that time of day and that part of town. Over would recommend and would do it again!

    Highlight of Belize trip!
    Paul_P, Apr 2024
    The boat staff were warm, friendly and professional. The snorkeling was as advertised. Swam with nurse sharks, sting rays, saw lots of fish (black snapper, grouper, parrot fish, trumpet fish and many other colorful ones) and beautiful coral. We got along well with the other guests on the boat, especially our teens, who enjoyed hanging out with other teens their age. Highly recommend. The family agreed that we could have done this trip two days in a row!

    The crew was exceptional on this Xsite excursion. So welcoming, informative, comforting and fun! I wish I could remember more of their names; Sergio, Wanner, Denjoy?, Tito? We had a great time and I highly recommend the adventure.

    Bianca_b, Mar 2024
    The staff was very friendly, the music was good the drinks was nice they kept the beer and drinks coming, shark experience was dope the snorkeling was fun and beautiful. Once you get to the beach you can buy food on the street which was really good. 10/10 boat ride. Lamar I think is his name is cool and patient.

    Thank You very much for the nice Review. I will let Lindon know of your nice comment and we hope to see you again soon! Tammy
    Prioritize this as your #1 Tour.
    Margaret_K, Mar 2024
    The crew absolutely makes this tour. A+++. Funny, so helpful, polite and kind. It’s like they intuitively know what you need before you even ask. Wow. And they put safety first. I haven’t snorkeled in over 40 years. So they took their time with me and gave me extra supervision. This is a one of a kind, do not miss experience.
    Response from Host, Mar 2024
    Good Afternoon, Thank you so much for this Review. In Belize the law is a Guide per 8 Guests. We at Xsite have a Guide per 6 for this exact reason. We are only as strong as our weakest swimmer and we understand that. So we take our time and spend the extra "whatever it takes" to make sure that everyone enjoys their day with us! We hope to see you again soon! Tammy
    Must do in Ambergris Caye!
    Jennifer_S, Mar 2024
    This was an amazing experience with some of the best snorkeling I’ve ever done. Swimming with the sharks was such a cool experience, and the tour guides were all super friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive!

    Mark_W, Feb 2024
    The snorkeling was our favorite but the sailing was a close second. Our crew/guides did a great job. I would recommend Xsite Sailing to anyone.

    Fantastic Day Trip
    khadeejahjohnson, Feb 2024
    We really had a fantastic time out on the ocean and enjoying a fantastic catamaran. The crew on the boat was very helpful and knowledgeable of the various fish and marine life. Safety was of the utmost importance and the guides were constantly checking in to make sure everyone was safe. Shark Ray Alley was incredible, and the sharks were abundant. This is a can’t miss excursion!

    Absolutely amazing!
    brandonhuschka, Feb 2024
    The crew of guys are very fun and loaded with tons of information. The entire trip experience was top notch and so fun! The catamaran sailboat is definitely the way to go. Very relaxing and not rough in the sea like the smaller single hull boats. Don’t hesitate to book a trip with this company. They exceeded my expectations and treat you first class.

    Day trip snorkeling
    Mariana_L, Jan 2024
    The crew on the boat were very knowledgeable and helpful. Snorkeling was so much fun. It was a beautiful and relaxing day.

    Thank You for your Review It is much appreciated and the Crew thanks you as well! They are a great Team and work really hard to give the best possible service. Thank You Tammy
    Tour operators - Amazing! pre-tour communication - could use some work
    Alexandra_N, Jan 2024
    This was an incredible experience. Between the reef snorkeling, shark and ray alley, and hanging out on a catamaran, we were in heaven. The three tour operators on our boat were well-versed in the local wildlife, friendly, accommodating, and kind. They made a delicious shrimp ceviche for lunch which was delicious. Our only issue was the pre-tour communication. It was not clearly listed what time and where to meet. We were staying on Caye Caulker and had to take the water taxi to San Pedro. This was not an issue, but we were worried we were going to take the water taxi, only to miss the start of the tour. I reached out ahead of time and did not get a response. Once we were on the boat, it was perfect, but would love to see some improvement on the communication before the tour.
    Response from Host, Jan 2024
    Good Afternoon, Thank you for the Review. We try to reach out to all Guests on reserving to make sure that they are clear where to go and when to be here. Maybe the internet was not allowing for this to happen. We hope you visit us again some time! Tammy

    Thank You for the Review, Yes minimum numbers must be met of 6 for the day to go. We try very hard to make our Service the best we can and include more than most other Companies for the day. Snorkeling is beautiful in Belize. We try to get with everyone by phone and sometimes service isn't great. We do recommend to Guests to download Whatsapp as it is widely used here. We hope you enjoyed your vacation and will return again! Thank You Tammy
    Great excursion!!!
    edward_d, Jan 2024
    The excursion was fantastic and the crew was even better. I’m happy we booked this trip. The sailing was relaxing and allowed us time to meet the crew and other guests. We snorkeled off reef and saw lots of fish and underwater creatures. Then we went to feed the sharks and really enjoyed that experience. Lunch at Caye Caulker was very chill and relaxing. The sunset cruise back to San Pedro was beautiful. Look no further, book this excursion if you want a full day of on the water fun!

    This tour should have been canceled. The weather was terrible with the forecast for heavy rains all day. We asked about rescheduling but were told they’d have to ask the owner and the guide said the snorkeling would still be amazing. It wasn’t. The currents were too strong to get to the reef. We were freezing the whole day. Speaking to other operators the following day, they were surprised we were taken out. 2 good things were swimming with the sharks for about 10 minutes and 30 minutes of feeding tarpons. Honestly, it was a very expensive day for a couple drinks on board and 40 minutes of fun. You have to pay for your own lunch on Caye Caulker-delicious but just another expense for the day.
    Response from Host, Jan 2024
    Good Evening, We are not in control of the weather, and everyone is asked if they want to go or not. We have been completely full for the holidays so we couldn't move you to another day as it was explained. We work really hard every day to make sure that guests have the best day ever with us. As long as there is no thunder or lightening, we can always go. It is something guests can decide. I am really sorry that it rained while you were here, and we always feel bad when this is the situation. But some guests want to go anyway as you are getting wet snorkeling and better than sitting in a hotel room. Some decide not to go which is their choice completely. We hope you enjoyed Belize overall and will come back again.
    The Highlight of Our Belize Vacation
    Krystle_M, Nov 2023
    This adventure was the highlight of our trip to San Pedro. From the snorkeling at Hol Chan to the time to peruse the shops and restaurants of Caye Caulker, the XSite adventure was the perfect way to spend our last day in Belize. Our crew - Edward, Chilo, and Fito - were personable, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to make sure that we had an amazing experience. We had a few minor and corrected hiccups with the booking, however, we stayed the course and were glad that we did. Do not be dissuaded if you have a similar experience.
