The Hol Chan Marine Reserve was established in 1987 and Shark Ray Alley was annexed to the reserve in 1999. Today visitors to one of Belize's 1st marine protected areas can enjoy swimming with large schools of fish and sea turtles! We combine this trip with stops at San Pedro, Ambergris Caye and/or Caye Caulker.
The abundant marine life at Hol Chan Marine Reserve (Zone A) makes an excellent back drop for the underwater photographer and naturalist. Your professional marine guide will lead you through this amazing marine protected area that many species of fish call home. Green sea turtles are also commonly sighted in the area feeding on seagrass.
After marveling at the colorful marine life on the Belize Barrier Reef we'll visit Shark Ray Alley (Zone D) where nurse sharks and southern stingrays were first attracted to the scraps left by fishermen from cleaning their product and today marine guides are permitted to feed the sharks and rays sprat, a local bait fish. Sea Sports Belize does not encourage feeding fish outside of this area since it changes the natural behavior of wildlife.
Before heading back to port we'll visit San Pedro or Caye Caulker so you can walk around and experience the "Go Slow" way of island life!
