Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Such an amazing place - wide variety of coral and fish easily seen when snorkeling. We also went to a nearby stop where we could see sharks, rays, and sea turtles - so wonderful!

We went here with Captain Jacks from Mariposa Resort and loved it. We snorkeled around the quaint little island, ate some grilled chicken then went out about a mile and did some more snorkeling before catching some fish and heading back to the mainland. We all had a great time.

While all of the cayes we went to were wonderful (we went to a total of 4), Silk Caye was amazing! If you snorkel or dive, this is not to be missed!

Tiny Caye 20 miles out in the middle of the barrier reef. Wonderful day of snorkeling with a barbecue lunch and rum punch after snorkeling.

Be real careful what company you use We had a "Long rough" ride (1 -1 1/2 hour) in a panga. The snorkeling was awesome, but for the very long uncomfortable ride, 15-20 minutes of snorkeling NOT worth it! A fresh catch lunch was offered but, again, way too long to hang around on a very small island full discarded fish parts and leftover shells from the local fishermen. This location didn't have any coral or interesting snorkeling.

We dove in two locations here; the North Wall and White Hole. We saw at least 10 nurse sharks, lionfish, parrot fish, eels, and more. A true highlight was seeing a female Loggerhead Turtle. We used Splash Dive Center and had a great boat captain and divemasters. They provided a lunch on the island--crowd pleasing. Please use reef-friendly/safe sunscreen.

The islands are home to some really cool coral. We saw sea turtles, nurse sharks, and many schools of fish. We went to Silk Caye the first day and the middle Island the second day. Silk Caye is usually busy but the guides are able to work around each other well.
