Bernie and Chris picked us up right on time from Matachica Resort and Spa. There were seven of us including my handicapped mother and her husband. We have snorkeled in several countries but Belize tops them all and Hol Chan? What can I say, it was like snorkeling in the most amazing aquarium I've ever seen! Every fish I've ever dreamed of, so beautiful. And Chris and Bernie were up for the task. Right away Bernie saw that my mother and step-father would not be able to keep up with the rest of us so he threw in a life preserver and had them hold on while he swam and they held on and just enjoyed the ride. I could kiss him for it. They enjoyed the fish as much as we did while not having to do the heavy duty swimming it would take to keep up with the current. Meanwhile Chris swam ahead of the rest of our group and showed us the green turtles, the loggerhead turtles, the eels, the wonderful coral, the gorgeous fish. My oh my it was terrific. Then when we were done there we took the boat to shark and stingray alley and in the water we went again. Ever swim with sharks and stingrays? I have! Thanks to Bernie and Chris! They fed the sharks chum to get them to come to the surface and then amazingly, gently took their fins, pulled them to themselves, turned them UPSIDE DOWN and let us pet their bellies. Not kidding. The sharks lay their like puppies, perfectly still while we pet them. Chris then swam down to the bottom and got a stingray, put it on top of his head and swam to the surface and let us touch them! Amazing, just simply amazing. I can't say enough about this tour.
