I wish we had done this trip on day one so I had time to go again. The list of marine life we saw up clise is too long to name! The coral was incredible. The sea turtle was a pleasant surprise. Shark Ally was once in a lifetime experience. And our crew, loved each one of them! The way we were made into guided groups really enhanced the experience and education about what we were seeing. Simply a must do!

Lovely day, nice guides
S_B, Mar 2024
It was a lovely day on the water with smooth sailing. Because there were not enough signups we were asked if we would go on a catermaran instead, which we did and it was pleasant. The guides were nice, always smiling and laughing, always offering drinks. We even saw dolphins swimming behind the boat at one point. The only downside is that we really didn't snorkel at the reserve for very long at all - our group would have preferred maybe a little less time in Caye Caulker and more time at the reserve. It felt like we just barely got a glimpse of the reserve and we were getting back in the boat. Overall, would recommend the tour so long as you are not expecting a signficant time snorkeling at the reserve.
Good tour.

Our tour guide was very nice. Took us to get some good food in caye caulker. My group of girls enjoyed the locals on the island
One of the Best Activities!

Snorkeling and the views were incredible. The boat was very clean and comfortable. Really enjoyed our lunch and time at Caye Caulker. I highly recommend this tour!
Tropical marine paradise

Hol Chan was incredible, so much healthy coral and wildlife. Shark Ray alley was even wilder with 6-7 foot nurse sharks and large sting rays swimming around you. The crew were great. Drinks were strong.
Non responsive
Jason_B, Jul 2023
The excursion was transferred to another company due to not fulfilling the minimum occupants requirement (which was fine) HOWEVER, we were told that it was the same price and when we went to the new company we were told the price was actually only $105/pp not $150/pp and when reaching back out to the original company to get the price difference refunded we are now not getting responses back. We were still charged the full $300. We would def recommend the other company.
Great day sailing & snorkeling!

Our guide Edwin was very informative and funny. He made sure to show us the seahorses and tarpon feeding in Caye Caulker and he also recommended restaurants for lunch. He was very accommodating on the boat and he also gave us info on places in San Pedro. Most importantly, he made sure to keep us safe in the waters and pointed out all the wonderful creatures there.

Fun trip
jason_h, Aug 2022
Very fun day. We left from Blue tang Inn. Went snorkeling at the local reef which was fun, got to swim with some sharks at another location, stopped at Caye Caulker for lunch and then back again. The guides were a lot of fun and made the trip interesting. Beautiful water and overall a fun trip. Would definitely recommend.

It’s a slow breezy sail mistakenly called a snorkeling trip
Vikram, Aug 2021
This isn’t really a snorkeling trip. It’s a long sail from San Pedro to Caye Caulker with two 30 min stops thrown in for snorkeling. Mind you, I’m not complaining as the slow sail on the sailboat is what I was looking for - but those looking for a day out snorkeling will be in for a big disappointment. It’s blink- and you’re back on the boat!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the length of the sail trip. We also offer a half day snorkel with the 2 snorkel stops. Guests choosing the full day to Caye Caulker also enjoy the time spent eating and shopping on Caye Caulker.
