Snorkel among the vibrant coral gardens of the world’s second-largest barrier reef on a day trip from Belize City. Cruise across the cool blue Caribbean to a spot with shallow depths and clear waters, ideal for admiring colorful sea fans, finger coral, and sponges teeming with fish. At a second stop, dive into waters churning with throngs of (harmless) nurse sharks and sting rays, and then reward your bravery with rum punch and a beach break on the laid-back island of Caye Caulker.
  • Swim and snorkel along Belize's famous barrier reef
  • Learn about the formation of old and new coral as you explore intricate undersea gardens
  • Safely swim up close to nurse sharks and sting rays at Shark Alley
  • Check out the beach vibes of nearby Caye Caulker along the way

Spectacular experience, all the peoples very helpful, my daughter can touch the sharks, reef beautiful the lunch amazing, thanks for everything
Definitely a highlight
, Mar 2020
Mark and his team were great! It was easy to get to the boat from the cruise ship, but they also gave a ride. We were one of the first off the ship, so we did end up waiting for a bit. Once on the boat, it was a wonderful ride to Caulker Caye; fast boat and small group size so we had plenty of space. The places they took us were incredible, and they did a great job leading us. You even get to feed leaping fish! The lunch was traditional Belize, and we had time after lunch to explore the Caye.

Snorkel & private island
, Feb 2020
Well, we got stuck on board the cruise ship editing to tender in and missed our excursion, but we were offered another excursion and took it. It was amazing!!! We went to Goff’s Caye. It’s a small 1/2 acre island. It had the best snorkeling and food! We got a private snorkeling tour from Felix. He is awesome! Took us right over the edge of the reef. Best snorkeling ever! Patrick was out boat captain! Both of these guys did an amazing job. Definitely recommend this excursion. It is a 35 minute boat ride but well worth it! Definitely recommend Splash Wave Tours!

Holding a baby shark.
, Feb 2020
This is a fantastic trip. A quick walk out the gate to a rep and short walk to a bus that whisks you away to a nearby pier where your boat and gear await. A 45 minute boat ride to an island to make your optional lunch order for $15. Don't feel obligated to buy the recommended lunch. When we returned we had plenty of time to walk around the small town and found a cuban sandwich that we split for $8. Plenty to hold us until we returned to our ship. We were lucky enough to see some bottle nosed dolphins. Then onto our first snorkel site. This was deep water and we wore life vests. The crew are amazing guides and showed us conch, a moray eel, many fish and stingrays among many coral formations. Next stop, stingrays and nurse sharks. This is waist deep water and we were actually able to hold a baby shark. After lunch on the island, our guides also hand fed some big birds and let some of us try it too. Really cool. Then they stopped to let some feed live tarpon some fish. The guides were very knowledgeable about the area and everyone had a good time. We easily made it back for our cruise. This is a good adventure and well worth the money. Don't forget to tip, these guys rely on tourism to feed their families!!!

Great snorkeling
, Jan 2020
The tour was very good, the only reason I am not giving 5 stars is because the vendor did not know my meal was included and I thought the boat was over crowded. However the crew was great!
Beautiful blue waters and snorkeling
, Jan 2020
Excellent staff. Tour was amazing . Boat ride took 45 minutes out in Caribbean off shore. So you need to be prepared to sit for the ride . We stopped to snorkel in reef and then made another stop to swim with sting ray and sharks. Island for lunch is remote and cute . Lunch was not appealing. Overall trip was well worth it.
More for your$
, Jan 2020
Everything was as described and more. Only thing not described was that they stopped at caye caulker 2 times...once to order lunch (at your own expense) and once to eat the lunch. All this makes trip longer.. Returned about 2:30PM. VERY BEAUTIFUL. JUST WANTED MORE TIME AT 2ND STOP TO VIEW CORAL, ETC.
Poor Communication
, Jan 2020
We booked this activity and were really looking forward to making it out to the reefs and seeing everything we could. When we booked, we received an email with instructions of where to meet, when, and what the itinerary for the day would be. On the day of our booking, we showed up to the meeting point 30 minutes early to ensure we did not miss it. After waiting an hour (30 minutes past when we should have left) we still had not been met by anybody. It was only after a guide from a DIFFERENT group spoke with us and told us that he knew Splash Wave Tours and they had cancelled for the day that we found out we would not be going. He then called them on his personal phone for us and they said they had cancelled due to weather. Apparently, they had forgotten to give any notice about this. I do not blame them for the weather as they cannot control that, but the fact that they simply neglected to tell us, their clients, about the cancellation and had no concern about our plans is unacceptable. I would certainly not recommend them.
Great day in Belize
