Sharks, Rays & Island Getaway
hrs Estimate Duration
Depart directly from the cruise pier on a comfortable motor vessel for a scenic approximately one hour boat ride to the charming tropical island of Caye Caulker. This historic little island is located along the edge of the Belize Barrier Reef, where the beautiful coral formations teaming with marine life, lay only a few hundred yards from the sandy beach. Your shark and ray encounter takes place on a shallow sand bar inside the reef. You’ll enter the water in small groups with your expert guide who will entice the gentle, friendly marine animals to come close for your personal encounter. While floating or standing on the bottom, let your hands slide along the smooth sides of the sharks and rays as they swim by in close proximity. You’ll be amazed how eager they are to visit you…of course your guide is close at hand with little bits of tasty morsels for them to enjoy. This is truly a close-up experience with Mother Nature and you will depart with a renewed appreciation for the wonderful creations that live under the sea.
Climb back on board your waiting vessel for the short ride to the Lazy Lizard Restaurant, located at the famous Split in Caye Caulker, where you can purchase a local meal or snack, along with various beverages at modest prices. This rustic venue has several thatched roof structures along the edge of the Caribbean, where you can sit and relax under a palapa, enjoying the refreshing sea breeze. You can also explore the small island of Caye Caulker, home to a quaint fishing village and very friendly locals.
As you cruise back to the pier, the attentive crew on your tour boat will serve you complimentary rum punch (for those 21 years and older) or plain fruit punch while you listen to rhythmic Caribbean vibes. This fun and exciting day in paradise will long be remembered.
