Caresse_S, Feb 2023
THE BEST EXPERIENCE!! do yourself a favor and book now! It was my son (14), nephew ( 17) and adult cousin and everyone said it was perfect and we all plan to go back asap! Randy and Joseph were so kind, professional and amazing, we saw turtles, sting rays, sharks and much more! The grilled chicken and rice lunch was AMAZING! Joseph was so kind with my son helping him snorkel and showing him wild life! Randy felt like family from the start and communicated amazingly! Please bring your friends and family to support these amazing 2 and can't wait to go back to visit for more memories! Thank u so much Randy and Joseph (ozuna 🤣) we will always remember that trip and can't wait to come back!

Truly remarkable...
B_S, Feb 2023
Truly remarkable experience! One of the highlights of our trip to Belize. Jason and his crew were phenomenal and would recommend them to anyone wanting to see some of the amazing sealife!
Wonderful day snorkeling
BLAIR_H, Jan 2023
It was an Amazing day. A lot of information and knowledge on the marine life we saw and we saw a lot
Nauti Tours in Belize highly recommended
CHERYL_M, Jan 2023
We were on a carnival cruise and booked this through Viator. Excellent, excellent tour. Randy, our guide from Nauri Tours, was great with communicating with us prior to the trip and we met up easily at the port terminal. Plan to take a water taxi from Belize city to caye Caulker ( 1 hour) and Nauti Tours will accommodate you with any time constraints. It is well worth it to make the trip out to see Hol Chan ref area. I also recommend their chicken they offer for lunch but they have other options. Plan to see a great amount of sea life and Randy was very informative. This was a personalized experience with just our family and I highly recommend this over an overcrowded experience.
Highly recommend Nauti Tours!
UT_j, Dec 2022
The tour was amazing! Saw manatees, sea turtles, barracuda, eagle rays, sting rays, nurse sharks, various fish and coral. The lunch that was provided was excellent as well.

Great Excursion for Cruisers
Brian_L, Nov 2022
Great tour for cruisers who want more than the same old shore excursions offered by the cruise lines . Randy met us at the cruise terminal and guided us to our excursion. We experienced so much sea life , sharks, turtles, manatees and many different kinds of fish. He got us back in time to do some shopping before having to take the last tender.

Best Snorkeling Excusion Ever!
Ebone_C, Oct 2022
I wanted to do something exciting for my birthday so I chose to snorkel with my friends. We weren't experts at all but Karim and Randy gave us the best experience ever! From their knowledge of the marine life to the food and the rum punch, everything was amazing and well worth ever penny. I'm so grateful to Karim and Randy. They really made my trip more exciting.
Best Day Ever
Joshua_C, Sep 2022
Karim and Randy were excellent hosts and Karim gave us the best experience ever! We saw every kind of marine animal you could imagine and Karim was very patient, informative and actually really funny, too! There are so many great surprises on this experience. It is well worth it.
Awesome tour
Nathan_M, Jul 2022
Amazing experience with wonderful guides. The group was small, the lunch was delicious (get the BBQ chicken), and the sharks were unbelievable. I would 100% do this again.

Wonderful day, take your camera
April_E, Jun 2022
Great tour. We had a boat and guides to ourselves as a large group. The guides were worth a nice tip. They made sure everyone had a great day. We arrived back and got an email reminding us exactly what we had seen. In the 2nd largest barrier reef this trip is remarkable. The only part disappointing was I thought we were getting pro pictures and I only have a picture of my youngest so maybe remember your own camera, because they aren't pros. Wonderful day.

Beyond Expectations!
Paul_P, May 2022
Every "possible" type of marine life we could have seen, we saw!!! Randy and his co-captain knew all perfect spots and we actually swam with/saw a manatee, nurse sharks, sea turtles, manta rays, eels, and countless species of fish and coral. The guides snorkeled with our group, the co-captain in front...diving down and pointing out to us everything we wanted to see. The captain snorkeled at the back of our group and kept us all together as he navigated and took underwater photos. We had an incredible time and would highly recommend Nauti Time Tours.
Rewarding experience
gary_p, May 2022
Captain Kareem and Jason were the best guides. Thoughtful, knowledgeable and true protectors of the reef and the environment. Can't wait to do it again!
Worth every penny!
Angelica_B, May 2022
The operator was fantastic! They take more than enough photos for everyone and email at end. Food was great. Waters were warm. Seen more than we honestly expected to see.
Fantastic tour!
Jessica_C, Mar 2022
I 100% recommend this tour- the snorkeling was amazing and Randy and Ash were the best guides! If you’re trying to decide on which tour to do, just purchase this one- you won’t regret it!
Nauti Time Tours was great!
Sandy_W, Mar 2022
Our guides were excellent and knowledgeable about the sea life. Lunch was provided and good. Our group was only four so we got lots of help. They never take more than 8 on their tours. Hoi Chan was crowded but they tried to get us away from the crowds as much as possible.
Best part of my vacation
S_W, Nov 2021
Randy and Corey were amazing. They shared interesting information about the fish, and the island. They took pictures, videos and made sure everyone was comfortable. There were only 4 other people on the boat with me so it felt like we were getting a personal tour. I would recommend them to everyone. They’re great. Oh, and lunch was superb. They should charge more- SW
Something on your bucket list to check off!
Ariel_M, Aug 2021
This was an incredible experience and you would hard-pressed to find more kind, responsible, super cool people to help guide you through this marine reserve. You will not go wrong booking this trip with Nauti Tours. Randy was amazing. He was so funny and we had a beautiful day! It was EASY, not stressful and beautiful. Please book these guys!

Knowledgeable guides and great tour
chris_e, Apr 2021
Lot of background info from guides. Explaining what we will see and describing the wildlife. Was somewhat disappointed in the lack of colorful coral, but that’s not the guides’ fault. Extra add-on feeding tarpon (awesome) and birds(neat). Guides did a good job leading us in the water and pointing out turtles, rays, etc
Can't wait to do it again!!!!
Christine_O, Dec 2020
We had a very tiny group so they put us in with another larger group. We were a little hesitant at first but the crew was great! It is very important to read the instructions that they give for the day. It is a long and amazing day. We did take a few snacks with us because I get low blood sugar and I ended up sharing with a few other people because it is a long day and you will be using a lot of energy. I am not a strong swimmer but I was dying to see the reef, the guide pulled me around, himself, while I was also swimming behind him and I did not feel left out at all. He took special care to make sure I got the full experience. He made sure everyone in the group saw everything he saw and gave us so much good information. A few of the people in our group did not get in the water at all but the crew member that stayed on the boat pointed all kinds of interesting things out to them and interacted with the ocean birds to keep them engaged. I was scared to go because I am not a strong swimmer but I had an amazing experience and can't wait to go again. It is a little harder for people with facial hair to get a good seal on their face mask so they may collect water and fog up more frequently. I recommend men shave before going. My husband had facial hair at the time and couldn't get a good seal with the mask and had issues with water coming into the mask. I highly recommend this excursion! It was so awesome.
