The Basics

The waters surrounding Caye Caulker are a mecca for marine life. Spend time exploring the coral reefs, seagrass beds, and shark habitats of Hol Chan Marine Reserve on a half-day tour from either Belize City or Caye Caulker, which typically includes hotel pickup and drop-off and a barbecue lunch accompanied by rum-based drinks. To see more marine life, take a boat trip to the Swallow Caye Wildlife Sanctuary, home to rescued manatees.

A Full Day of Fun & Adventure Snorkeling Tour
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!

Hol Chan Marine Reserve Snorkel and Caye Caulker Tour 40' Sirena Azul Sailboat
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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

I can say this was the best day of our time in San Pedro! The crew were professional and yet engaging in conversation telling us about the places we snorkels and swam with Nurse sharks and sting rays. If you only do one thing on your trip this is the one to do!!
