“Snorkeling to Hold Chan”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

The full day sailing tour to Shark and Ray Alley and later to Hol Chan Reserve with Captain Rob provided both education on the species of fish and the coral and opportunities to swim with nurse sharks, rays and sea turtles. Lunch, snacks of fresh fruit, cerviche and reggae music made this a wonderful experience.

“Snorkel day”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

I have just been on one of this company's snorkel days with a group of students and to say I was impressed is an understatement. We left the quay and headed for the first of 3 different sites visited during the day. Each site is amazing and at the first we saw 3 Mannikins. The second and third are just as good, with sharks, Rays and even Sea Turtles.
The guides were always attendant and made sure the group was safe. Lunch was prebooked and we had it after the first snorkel site. There were always drinks on offer and even Nachos on the way back.There are many different companies doing the same sort of tour and they may be just as good but this was a first class day run very well by Raggamuffin.

“Ragga Princess for a Day!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Don't let the crew's "go slow", relaxed attitude fool you, they are working very hard to give you the most wonderful adventure! We set sail with Rob, Chilo, and Charles and had one of the most memorable days of my life. I have snorkeled in Southeast Asia, Costa Rica, Hawaii, and twice before in Belize (once to Hol Chan and another time to Laughingbird Caye), but this trip exceeded all of the others. The crew was friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and committed to making sure their guests had the best possible experience.
We did the full day tour with three stops. I am sure other tours stop at the same spots, but I would use Raggamuffin Tours again because of the amazing customer service. We were well fed on the tour- fresh fruit, a filling seafood lunch, and rum punch and shrimp ceviche (I want Charles' recipe!) after the final stop. They also provided plenty of ice cold water to keep you hydrated. Rob and Chilo led us to wonderful spots on the reef and were happy to answer questions both in the water and back on the boat. Shark and ray alley was incredible, as were the other two stops. I felt the price was a bargain for what the tour offered. Thank you for such a memorable adventure!

“Great value adventure- amazing way to see the reef!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

This tour was amazing! And that is saying something for us if you've seen some of the other reviews. This tour was really a dream for us, we had seen it offered 5 years ago when we were on Caye Caulker and wanted to come back and do this trip. It was a really intimate way to see the reef and islands that make Belize so unique. We saw cruise ships along the way in the distance and reveled in the opportunity to see this part of the Carribean with Raggamuffin instead! Days of snorkeling, camping on islands, rum punch and reggae music paired with chilling (or sunning) on the sail boat was all we could hope for. The crew of Captain Jerry, Shane and Javier bent over backwards accomdating us. If you do this, realize that 15 people on a boat mean that a group dynamic is part of the trip for better or worse. Unfortunately a couple things were lost on day 3 that was a bit of a buzz-kill, so keep an eye on your stuff if you can't afford to lose anything on Tobacco Caye. Overall, amazing trip, thanks Ragga tours!
