Hol Chan Marine Reserve is a popular marine protected area located off the coast of Ambergris Caye in Belize. It is known for its incredible biodiversity, crystal-clear waters, and vibrant coral reefs. These two locations are renowned for their vibrant marine life and are part of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, one of Belize's most protected and biodiverse marine areas.

Hol Chan Marine Reserve

The first stop on the tour is often at Hol Chan Marine Reserve, which is a Mayan term for "Little Channel." It is a natural cut in the barrier reef, and it's known for its incredible diversity of marine life. The water here is crystal clear, making it perfect for snorkeling and diving. Your guide will lead you through the reserve, pointing out various coral formations, colorful fish, and other marine creatures. You may encounter parrotfish, angelfish, groupers, nurse sharks, and even sea turtles.

Shark Ray Alley

After Hol Chan, you'll head to Shark Ray Alley, which is just a short boat ride away. This spot earned its name because it's a popular feeding site for nurse sharks and southern stingrays. You'll have the opportunity to snorkel alongside these gentle giants while your guide provides insight into their behavior and habitat. Don't worry; these sharks are used to human presence and are generally harmless.

Overall,  the Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley tour offers an unforgettable experience to explore the underwater wonders of Belize, encounter marine life up close, and contribute to the conservation efforts that protect these remarkable ecosystems. Just a short boat ride away from the island of Ambergris Caye, it’s a perfect way to spend a half day out at sea.
