Default snorkling Shark Ray Alley Belize

I just returned from the Carnival Legend. I wanted to go to Shark Ray Alley and snorkle with the sting rays and nurse sharks. Carnival cancelled this excursion so I booked the tour with Coral Breeze Limited. II booked it on line and e mailed the company with all my questions which were promptly answered.

Please note the tours are on Belize time not ships time they will tell you how to determine what time that is by visiting their web site.

I had a great time, we were late getting into Belize and the tour guides waited for us. I don't recall all their names but I do remember David and Monique. They held up signs and were easy to find outside the Wet Iizard lounge in the tourism village. They took us out in the boat explained how to snorkle, answered questions.

The staff were so friendly they really seemed to enjoy their jobs. We arrived at Shark Ray and within seconds our boat was surrounded by Rays and one nurse shark. We had a great time swiming with the curious Rays, the guide held one and let some people take a photo holding it. Then we went to a second site and snorkled the coral reef we saw many beautiful fish and sea life. The water was warm and clear. We then had lunch on Caye Caulker it was lovely. I payed much less then I would have if the ship offered this tour. The company was very professional. I highly reccomend this company and this tour.

Default Re: snorkling Shark Ray Alley Belize

You can only do this tour by private company at this time. It is no longer offered by CCL due to problems with the contractor. Understand that the cruiseline, any cruiseline, only employ companies that meet certain safety and professional requirements and stand behind their product. If they fail to meet these standards...they find another company or cancel the tour.
