“BEst snorkeling ever”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

We decided not to SCUBA this trip and just go snorkeling. We are so glad we did. This place is amazing. We saw huge sea turtles, eels, a million fish, sting rays and sharks. Make sure you go here! You will NOT be disappointed

“Awesome dive and snorkel sites!”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

We were in Belize for eight (8) hours on a cruise in April 2013. We chose to take the short flight, 20 minutes, on Mayan Air to San Pedro. The flight was neat and the views were amazing!!

We had a small dive operation in San Pedro take us out to Hol chan Marine Reserve for snorkeling and diving. We were able to dive with turtles, rays and other sea life. The trip to the shark snorkel site in Hol Chan Marine Reserve was extremely memorial! Can wait to go back.

Next time we may make a week long trip to San Pedro so we can enjoy the area more.

“A Must Do”
Reviewed 19 November 2013

Hol Chan is great for snorkeling and diving alike. There is an abundance of marine life including eagle rays, turtles, angelfish and plenty of amazing coral.
Combine this with Shark/Ray alley and you have a trip you won't soon forget.

“Amazing Wildlife!”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

This was my first time snorkeling and I was absolutely astonished at the beauty of the reef and the animals. We saw a wide array of fish and then of course, nurse sharks, rays and a huge turtle. I only regret pacing out my photographs because I ran through the whole roll of film QUICK (disposable waterproof camera) because I was so excited!
