Well worth the 2+ hour boat ride! It was like having an enormous, private reef to explore for the day. For snorkeling, I recommend Happy Go Luckie tours out of Silk Grass (Hopkins). Lunch on Northeast Caye was an excellent break as well.

I would wait to book until you get there. There usually different boats going out on regular basis. If you are at a resort they can help you otherwise there a couple of dive shops in the area.
