What You Can Expect

Belize Snuba Adventure Tour from Ambergris Caye

Snuba Adventure

Enjoy the ease of snorkeling combined with the greater depths and flexibility of scuba diving on a Belize SNUBA adventure! You will be picked up at your Ambergris Caye hotel for a quick boat ride out to the destination of your choice — either Hol Chan Marine Reserve or Mexico Rocks.

At the site, your guide will present a quick, 15-minute safety training. There is no certification required for SNUBA, and you will breathe through a long hose attached to a regulator aboard the boat. Once you’re geared up, splash into the refreshing, crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean and descend to a depth of up to 20 feet (6 meters) to explore the vibrant underwater surroundings.  

Hol Chan Marine Reserve is a protected channel in the second-largest barrier reef in the world. If you opt for Mexico Rocks, sandwiched between the island of Ambergris Caye and the outlying barrier reef, you'll swim among shallow patch reefs dotted with coral and sea grass. Both locations are home to a rich variety of marine life, including colorful fish, sea turtles, stingrays, eels, and harmless nurse sharks. 

After returning to the surface, you will be taken by boat back to solid ground on Ambergris Caye and dropped off at your hotel. (Additional transport fees may apply for hotels located outside of San Pedro.)

This was a highlight of our vacation. Mexico rocks is such a beautiful area. If you enjoy snorkeling you will love snuba.

Very fun. I tend to get sea sick and slightly claustrophobic, but had no problems with SNUBA. Took a few minutes to get used to breathing with a regulator but other than that it was easy. Saw sharks and sting rays and beautiful fish. The guides were awesome. Very knowledgable and put me at ease!

OMG! This place is incredible, the dive master Mike was awesome as was our boat captain, I would suggest taking lessons prior to your trip as it can be a little intimidating at first, we visited Mexico Rocks and all that has been said about it is true and more!

It was my first time to snuba. Great experience, excellent equipment and guide.
It is a great intro to scuba, now I want to take certification classes!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2013

We love this. Learned a lot from the trip. Our tour guides were great, helped us feel confident. My husband fell in love with it. He wanted to snorkel and I wanted to Scuba so we compromised on snuba. He is now ready for the next step. I have to say I had a little difficulty with breathing out into the air thing and thought i was gonna chicken out (enclosed places can bother me) but I put it aside in my mind and am so glad I did. I kept telling my husband it was like being on the Finding Nemo ride at Disneyland with all the fish and I even touched a see turtle, it was awesome!

Snuba is fabulous. Minor problem with schedule but Christine at Belize Discovery Adventures figured it out and we had a great time. Roy and Iver were great.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2013

They were very nice and accommodating. Were "late" to pick us up (on-time, per Belize time) which was no big deal. We walked to their place on the dock and they came back and got us and our gear, were very nice about it. I was nervous about snuba diving because I'd never used a breathing apparatus before or dove deeper than 10 ft, but our guide did a great job making me feel comfortable and safe, using as many weights as I felt comfortable wearing. Snuba diving is great if you want to see whats below 20 ft. Though, snorkeling is just as satisfying because most of the life is on the upper part of the coral reefs anyway. After snorkeling at Hol Chan, which was amazing. We went to Shark Ray Alley which was equally great -- got to swim with nurse sharks, manta rays and select fish.
