Many people enjoy the ease and freedom of snorkeling in the warm clear tropical waters of Belize’s Caribbean reef and seacoast, where some of the most beautiful underwater scenes are to be found in the better lit and more abundant shallower waters.
Snorkelling is also an activity that entire families, from young children to grandparents, can enjoy together, while more experienced divers can find countless undersea challenges along the Belize reef.
The world heritage listed Belize barrier reef as one of the most diverse eCutcosystems in the world, made up of over 100 coral species and home to some 500 species of fish and hundreds of invertebrates. As far back as 1842 Charles Darwin called it, "the most remarkable reef in the West Indies", and it is no less stunning today.
Scattered along the 170 mile living coral reef are nearly 200 small islands, or cayes, some just sandy specks and others containing fresh water wells and their own remarkable mini ecosystems. One experienced diver recently described a visit to them as “stepping back to what exploring the Caribbean must have been like two hundred years ago.”
