ShoreTrips says...

This is considered some of the best snorkeling in all of Southern Belize. Something you won't want to miss if you love the water.

If we just handed you a boat and motor with some snorkel gear off the shores of Belize, odds are you wouldn't know exactly where to go next. Luckily, we know some awesome local guides who have spent years snorkeling all of the best spots near Harvest Caye. It took years of begging and blackmailing, but we have convinced them to take you to these spots.

After a brief and easy water taxi to the meeting location, you will hop on your boat for a 45-minute ride to a magical spot known as Laughing Bird Caye. Laughing Bird Caye was declared a National Park in 1991, and a world heritage site in 1996 - this truly is one of the world's best snorkel locations. White sandy beaches and coral reef surrounding, you are in for a snorkel adventure of a lifetime! Once you arrive we will get outfitted in your snorkel gear and head out with your guide. He will lead your small group of snorkelers while pointing out areas of interest and sea creatures. After about an hour of snorkeling, you will stop at a beach to dig your toes into the sand while enjoying a light snack.

Keep your eye out for Loggerhead Turtles. Adults range in size from 180 to 440 pounds so you can't miss them!
