Belize is famous for its remarkable snorkeling sites and diverse sea life. With a name that means “Little Channel” in Maya, Hol Chan Marine Reserve was the first such designated reserve in Central America and is located among the second-largest barrier reef in the world. Just a 15-minute ride by motor boat from Ambergris Caye, Hol Chan will be the first stop on your snorkeling adventure.
After donning a snorkeling mask and fins, you'll be ready to splash into the shallow, clear Caribbean waters to explore the amazing coral reef formations below. Thanks to dedicated conservation efforts, this area boasts a wonderfully healthy and diverse population of marine life, including 160 different species of fish. You’re likely to spot large schools of snapper, grouper, and jack fish darting among the impressive coral formations, as well as larger creatures like sea turtles and stingrays.

Hop back aboard your boat for a quick ride over to Shark Ray Alley, a shallow channel in the reef where these two bottom feeders are found in abundance. Swim among gentle stingrays, with wingspans up to 4 feet (1.2 meters), as well as harmless brown nurse sharks that can reach lengths of more than 9 feet (2.75 meters). After getting your fill of these marvelous marine animals, you’ll be transported back to Ambergris Caye and your San Pedro hotel.

The guys were so patient and helpful! We saw beautiful fish, nurse sharks, a sting ray, and amazing coral. Highly recommended!

This snorkeling tour was so much fun. Thanks to a smaller group, I was able to explore as much as I wanted. Hol Chan Marine Reserve is so beatiful!

I was so excited about this trip and it seemed like the reviews were great, but we did not have that same experience. They told us they would pick us up at 8:45 from our hotel's dock, they came at about 9:05 with no apologies for being late. I understand tours can run behind pick up other people, but it was so hot sitting in the direct sun for that long and having no idea what the boat looked like and having to ask every boat that came by if they were for us. They seemed put out to even be having to pick us up, but it's included in the price. When we got to Hol Chan we were informed that we were on a boat full of other people who were doing snuba. We were the only 2 snorkelers on this trip, I'm not sure why we'd have been put on the same trip as them. We had to sit there and wait forever while every one went out doing the snuba. It was such a waste of time. When we did get to snorkel they made us go out with a guide and he told us we had to stay with him, which was fine, but he seriously was the slowest swimmer I could ever imagine. I felt like we sat in the water waiting for him to catch up, I got so cold in the water being still waiting for him. The reefs were beautiful and shark ray alley was great, but overall this tour company was pretty awful. Rude, not helpful, and the fact that it was not as advertised being a snuba trip was a real disappointment.

Our guide was amazing. Small boat, but better than the other boats out there. We got a lot more time in the water than other companies doing the same tour. Plus since it was a smaller group there were a lot less people which is always better when snorkeling.

Absolutely gorgeous sites to snorkel! Hol Chan had amazing marine life - I am an experienced scuba diver of over 15 years and saw more on this snorkel than on some dives. We were treated to sea turtles, manatees, nurse shark, moray eels, stingrays, and more. Shark Ray Alley is treat for anyone who loves to swim with marine life! Definitely recommended!
