Seeing a shark in the distance can be a little unsettling, but nurse sharks are relatively safe.

It’s a slow breezy sail mistakenly called a snorkeling trip
Vikram, Aug 2021
This isn’t really a snorkeling trip. It’s a long sail from San Pedro to Caye Caulker with two 30 min stops thrown in for snorkeling. Mind you, I’m not complaining as the slow sail on the sailboat is what I was looking for - but those looking for a day out snorkeling will be in for a big disappointment. It’s blink- and you’re back on the boat!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy the length of the sail trip. We also offer a half day snorkel with the 2 snorkel stops. Guests choosing the full day to Caye Caulker also enjoy the time spent eating and shopping on Caye Caulker.

A Full Day of Fun & Adventure Snorkeling Tour
Lawrence_B, Jul 2021
Victor took the time to point out so many different variations of coral. And made sure we saw all the interesting fish that we came across during the guided snorkel tour. Both David and Victor were excellent hosts during the whole tour. We had a great time!
Response from Host, Dec 2021

Breathtaking!
Tina_L, Nov 2019
I wish we had done this trip on day one so I had time to go again. The list of marine life we saw up clise is too long to name! The coral was incredible. The sea turtle was a pleasant surprise. Shark Ally was once in a lifetime experience. And our crew, loved each one of them! The way we were made into guided groups really enhanced the experience and education about what we were seeing. Simply a must do!
A day very well spent
Ben_H, Apr 2021
Hol Chan is an incredible variety of sea life, and the mastery of the Sirena Azul's crew is top notch. We were 2 of 6 on a very windy day (20+ knots). We trusted the crew to show us a great, safe time, and they delivered. The diving expertise of the first mate was something to behold as he spotted sting rays, coaxed out a moray eel, and brought a huge barracuda out of hiding for us to see, and the captain managed the Sirena Azul with a casual confidence. Caye Caulker is a bit limited in options for only a two hour stay, but anything longer would lead to an exhaustingly long day for all. Thank you David and Victor, this was a highlight of our trip!
Response from Host, Dec 2021

A Relaxing Experience - Incredible Crew Members
Rene_G, Dec 2019
Let me start saying that the stars of this trip are the Crew Members. Captain Charlie did a terrific job. He took a lot of patience and good care of our daughter. They are very respectful and customer oriented. These guys makes a very positive impact on the tour, they both know their business seriously. Sail boat is relaxing, you just let the wind to do the job. We had a blast in Hol Chan, snorkels were functioning perfect. The fish view is outstanding, nice area for a family with a young kid. The Shark Ray Alley was kind of fast, I wish we should have had a little bit more of time. But definitively so much fun with the Nurse Sharks and Eaglerays. Caye Caulker seems more for Party Boys and Girls. But it is a lovely Island. Seafood is always fresh. From the tour execution I would say Excellent, however there is only one major suggestion, the people in the office should have better communication especially when there is a tour day change. We left messages on the phone that were not replied back.

Amazing experience
Christopher_H, Jun 2021
This experience was amazing. The crew was so friendly and helpful and attentive. The snorkeling was full of sights and close to the coast. The side trip to Caye Caulker was wonderful. My wife and I took our two daughters, 5 and 9, and they had a great time as well. Really can’t say enough about this experience and how it was just perfect in every way. A day we will always remember.
Response from Host, Dec 2021

Fun Sail in the Sun
Binta_C, Apr 2021
My group of girlfriends and I had a great Saturday with the Sirena Azul team! They were amazing at helping us while snorkeling and suggesting places during our stop at Caye Caulker. They provided entertainment and fun during the sail and were very professional. I would definitely highly recommend this boat tour!

Relaxing trip of snorkeling
Bruce_S, Jan 2020
This was a relaxing trip on a sailboat to snorkel at Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley. The boat moved along at a relaxed pace, which was fun since the day was beautiful and allowed us to enjoy the scenery. We were guided around Hol Chan's reefs. The reefs were good. They looked a little tired, but worth visiting. Next, we went to Shark Ray Alley where they threw chum into the water with us snorkeling up close to watch. Nurse sharks and different rays feed, along with smaller fish. It is neat to watch and maybe a little unnerving. Seeing a shark in the distance can be a little unsettling, but nurse sharks are relatively safe. Next we went to Caye Caulker for a relaxing lunch and had time to walk around and take in the sites. It was nice to see a different island with a different feel. The only slight downside to the trip was that the wind wasn't enough to really sail, but the sails were deployed to give us some shade. It worked. Well worth taking the trip. We all enjoyed ourselves.
Awesome snorkeling!!
Pamela_H, Jul 2021
Snorkeling was awesome. Guides were fantastic. Exceeded all of our expectations! Would definitely do this tour again.

Fantastic snorkeling!
clammd828, Aug 2019
This was an amazing day trip! Victor and Carlos were absolutely fabulous and showed us such beautiful fish, sharks, and stingrays. The most wonderful snorkeling and beautiful coral reef. Amazing to be face-to-face with sharks! The 2 hours in Caye Caulker were just enough to experience the charming town and visit shops and eat delicious food.
Wonderful experience highly recommend
Karen_C, Apr 2022
Great hosts/crew (David and Victor). Very organized, friendly, knowledgable, and caring. Saw so much marine life, including rays, sharks, sea turtles, coral, eels, and so many kinds of fish! Excellent experience, highly recommend.

Fun trip
jason_h, Aug 2022
Very fun day. We left from Blue tang Inn. Went snorkeling at the local reef which was fun, got to swim with some sharks at another location, stopped at Caye Caulker for lunch and then back again. The guides were a lot of fun and made the trip interesting. Beautiful water and overall a fun trip. Would definitely recommend.

Sailing the reef is the only way to go!
Becky_B, Jul 2021
If I could give a 10 star review I would!! Our group of 4 had the best time! Victor and David did a wonderful job... Victor made sure we learned about the coral and the fish we were seeing below us. He pointed out certain creatures that were hard to see. When it came time to feed the sharks, they made sure we were able to swim with them before we ran out of shark food. The sailboat ride was so relaxing and enjoyable. We we returned from Caye Caulker, we had a quick storm roll in and these guys were quick to get the sails under control and keep us safe! I would take this sailboat ride again over taking the other catamaran or boats available. Thank you for such a wonderful and memorable day!
Response from Host, Dec 2021
We are happy to hear you loved the sailing experience on the Sirena Azul Sailboat. It's always a favorite tour for the owners of Blue Tang Inn as well.

We hope you visit again soon.
Amazing day with awesome crew
MinDiesel, Feb 2021
The crew was fantastic. I’d read reviews from early last year but they were all pre-covid. I believe we were the first full day trip since covid shut down last year. The crew said they weren’t sure what would be reopened on Caye Caulker but gave us recommendations on where to eat. The snorkeling in the morning was awesome. Having never snorkeled before I was worried but no problems. Beautiful reef and great tour guide that gave us so many names of animals. Saw sea turtles, sting rays, tangs, nurse sharks, snapper, etc. The feeding of nurse sharks was awesome too. At Caye Caulker there weren’t a lot of tourist shops open yet due to lack of tourism. Had lunch at The Split. Great spot for lunch, watched people jump in the water from the tower, swim up bar, beautiful water. Nice lazy 2 hour ride home where we napped on the bow. Can’t say enough about how friendly and knowledgeable the staff were. Just awesome.

Overall this was a fun trip and met...
Tibor L, Feb 2018
Overall this was a fun trip and met expectations. There were about 12 people on the boat including my wife and I and everybody got along nicely. The weather was great but unfortunately there was little wind so we mostly used the engine. The snorkeling was great as always but no matter what the any of these places advertise they all go to the same place. We went to Caye Caulker and ate at the place they suggested as did most of the rest of the people on the boat. They did state that they were slow with getting food but we did not expect as slow as it was and so we never had the time to explore the island. The food was descent. On the way back i was able to steer the boat.
