HOL CHAN

Hol Chan is Mayan for "little channel" and is a natural break in the reef, which has always been a very productive fishing area with abundant marine life. It is open to the sea beyond the reef, so allows marine creatures to travel from the outside of the reef to the inside and vice versa. It became the first marine reserve in the entire country of Belize back in 1987 and this have led to the species to re-generate and the corals of growing unharmed. This snorkeling area has the greatest variety of marine life and coral, compared to being an "underwater zoo" - you have the chance to see all kinds of corals, fishes and even sea turtles! Over 160 species of fish and forty types of coral have been recorded in the area.

SHARK RAY ALLEY

The story behind Shark Ray Alley is that in all times, due to its position close to the channel to go outside the protecting barrier reef for fishing, it was the point where the local fishermen came in with their catch and started cleaning it - throwing the head, etc into the water. This converted it a natural habit for the marine life such as nurse sharks and sting-rays that associate the sound of an engine to food. The water is shallow and transparent and you will see the nurse-sharks and sting-rays on the surface, meaning that even if you don't get in to the water you can enjoy it from the boat as well! The stop here normally doesn't exceed the 20 minutes, since the nurse-sharks and sting-rays eventually swims away.

CAYE CAULKER

Caye Caulker is the island closest to Ambergris Caye, the locals call it their "sister island". This is just how you imagine an authentic Caribbean island to be and a nice contrast to the more developed Ambergris Caye. Caye Caulker was uninhabited until the middle of the nineteenth century, when a small number of the refugees fleeing civil war on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula ended up there, started planting coconuts and developed a profitable fishing industry. Since the 1960's tourism has slowly grown on the island, but it has still kept its quite laid-back atmosphere, with the motto "Go Slow". The island is about 5 miles long but the town is just about 1 mile long and 1/2 to 1 mile wide. The "road" around Caye Caulker is only made of sand and is lined with swaying palm trees, souvenir shops and local jewellery shops (we can highly recommend to take a look at this, ask the crew for our favorite jeweller, Jorge!). A high-light to visit is the famous "Split" and the bar Lazy Lizard, the most popular place both for locals and visitors to hang out for a drink and a swim. The Split started off as a channel which was widened by Hurricane Hattie in 1961, but back then it was actually just about a foot or so deep. The islanders then dug by hand to widen the channel to allow small boats to pass through. Over the years tidal forces took over and created the 20 foot feet channel that is now today's Split.

MEXICO ROCKS

Mexico Rocks is an area of huge coral heads scattered all over this snorkeling spot - making it look like a Mexican sombrero, as some say the name comes from. These enormous coral formations contain large brains corals, gorgonians, sea fans and sea whips which provide shelter for an abundance of critters. Common creatures like angelfish, butterfly fish, groupers, snappers, file fish, grunts can be seen swimming along these formations as well as a casual loggerhead turtle.

TRES COCOS

South of Mexico Rocks closer to town is Tres Cocos, a small concentration of marine life along the reef where a large amount of fish can be seen. You can encounter a large population of Elk Horn corals, Lettuce Coral, Brain Coral, Sergeant Majors, Angel Fish, Damselfish, Fairy Basslet, Hawks-bill Turtles and occasional Green Turtles just to name a few. This area is an entrance for large reef fish that usually lurk around these areas in search for food.

NATURAL POOL

This is an exclusive stop that only we make - we have the advantage of only drafting 2 feet which makes it possible to anchor in such shallow water, and we are also blessed with a Captain that know the spots where nobody else goes. This is a shallow area just by the reef and except from spectacular views it is also a unique setting and a refreshing break. The water is only 4-5 feet deep.

Our vision is to let you design your own tour, there are plenty of itineraries to choose from!
First you have to decide if you want to go South or North, as our stops all need to be in the same direction.
South is Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley as well as two other snorkel options, Coral Gardens and the North Channel.
We can stop on Caye Caulker or at a desert beach.
North, we have Mexico Rocks, Tres Cocos and the natural pool and we can also make a break on shore.
The sunset happens West of Ambergris Caye, meaning not the side we are sailing on but the opposite. On the South itineraries, we time our return to see the sunset on the way back, over the water with nothing in its way. On the North itineraries, there is no possibility to see the sunset.
For groups with less than 6 guests, one of the snorkel stops can also be exchanged for reef fishing - trolling and casting rods, mostly catch and release, for fun!
We have the option to add our famous Belizean buffet to your charter, that we will serve you on-board. You can also choose to have lunch on Caye Caulker or at a restaurant in the North. On the itinerary options with the Belizean buffet included, this is because there is not enough amount of time on shore to have lunch. On the desert beach, there is nowhere to buy anything, but we can serve up the buffet for you at a table on the beach.

You absolutely don't have to decide everything in advance, but it's good to have an idea of the options!
