Snorkeling And Scuba diving
The Belize Barrier Reef, is the second largest in the world and a spectacular sea sport destination... Mother Natures Best Kept Secret! Less than one mile off Caye Caulker and inside the Belize Barrier Reef, the water is generally calm, ideal for snorkeling and other sea sports. When snorkeling you can experience an open ocean aquarium in less than 6 feet of water and at the most about 20 feet.  So if you are new to the snorkeling world, you will feel comfortable in the shallow turquoise water off Caye Caulker. During your underwater viewing adventure you are likely to see Manta and Spotted Eagle Rays, Sea Turtles, Nurse Sharks, a variety of Corals, multiple schools of colorful fish, and occasionally... Dolphins! And if that is not enough, you might have the luck to swim with the Manatees. During their mating season in early summer they might be hanging out in the Caye Caulker Marine Reserve, located the entire length of North & South Caye Caulker. Caye Caulker also has the Caye Caulker Shark and Ray Alley snorkeling spot. This is the ultimate adventure; swimming with the Nurse Sharks and the Sting Rays! Another excellent snorkeling spot is the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. The reserve is located about two miles from Ambergris Caye and about 8 - 10 miles from CC. The Hol Chan Marine Reserve was established in 1987 and is one of the best marine life Reserves in the world.

So pack your swim suit and come join in the sea world adventure. No need to bring your gear! We have a variety of licensed tour operates that will take care of you. We work with local Caye Caulker tour operators, so we are able to make all the arrangements for you. You can either go on a motor boat or go on a sailboat, the choice is yours. The tour costs range anywhere from $45.00 US dollars for a full day snorkel tour or less than that for a half day. Or you can just be on your own and snorkel right off the Island. The popular "Split "area has it's own charm and is great for swimming.

Remember the CC motto: GO SLOW!

There are three dive operations based on Caye Caulker. They have trips to the local reefs, to Hol Chan marine reserve, and to the outer atolls such as the Blue Hole on Lighthouse Reef. The dive shops are fully equipped and offer certified scuba courses. A resort course is also offered enabling the novice to dive the local reefs.
