Belize Snorkeling Tours

Belize Snorkeling Barrier Reef Tours

Many people enjoy the ease and freedom of snorkeling and diving in Belize 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.

Snorkeling 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 UNESCO listed the Great Belize Barrier Reef as one of the most diverse eco-systems 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.”

Chaa Creek’s affordable, Belize all inclusive packages are designed to present the best of the Caribbean in exciting, hassle-free excursions.

Our one day snorkeling adventure takes visitors on a drive along the lovely Hummingbird Highway over the Maya Mountains and down to Belize's southern coast to the traditional Garifuna town of Dangriga, where a boat ferries guests to picturesque and unspoilt South Water Caye for a full day of snorkeling, swimming, beachcombing and delicious island food.
