Caribbean cayes and coast: Snorkel in Shark Ray Alley

Visit Us

Snorkel in Shark Ray Alley

One of the most thrilling ways to get up close to Belize's sea life is to take a boat trip out to Shark Ray Alley, where you can jump into a clear turquoise sea swarming with shadowy nurse sharks and graceful sting rays. While it may sound like a leap of faith, there is no element of danger – in fact these menacing-looking sharks don't even have teeth.

Local fisherman were the first to notice the huge congregations of rays and sharks frequenting this narrow strip of reef in the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, and it's now a popular place to try out a daredevil snorkeling experience.
