Snorkeling at Silk Caye with Turtles, Rays and Nurse Shark

1 day
About this activity
Silk Cayes is our most popular snorkel destination and offers great scuba diving on the nearby Barrier Reef which makes the Silk Cayes a perfect getaway for whole family. Silk Cayes are part of a marine reserve established to protect the outer reef and has an abundance of aquatic life, fish stocks, coral reef biodiversity and healthy corals.

A typical day of snorkelling includes a briefing by the park rangers. The licenced snorkel guide then leads you into the water to view the local residents. If you have not snorkeled before, no problem; the guides are happy to teach and guide you! The snorkel guides show you where to find the coral and the fascinating creatures who live there. Critters include lobsters, cleaner shrimp, arrow crabs, snapper, barracuda and more varieties of reef fish than you can count on.

Around mid-day enjoy an authentic Belize style picnic lunch or Island Barbecue. After the break, head back into the water to explore more corals and denizens who make Silk Cayes their home. The best is yet to come! After the second snorkel expedition, you'll head to a spot just inside the barrier reef where local fishermen clean their catch. You are almost certain to have the opportunity to snorkel with huge turtles, rays, and sharks!
