Taking the Grand Princess to Western Caribbean out of Galveston in April with 3 kids under 11. Any adivce on the 3 Possible Snorkel Excursions in Belize? They are Rendevous Cay, Goff's Cay or Sargeant's Caye. Also wondering where to swim with the Dolphins since it is available in several of the ports.
we just returned from Belize and I give high compliments to Sargeant Caye's for snorkeling! Not only did they cater to us "first timers," - I'm ready to go again! One of our group had been snorkeling numerous times in numerous places and she said this was by far the BEST snorkeling she had ever done.
on our second trip to belize we decided to do Golfs Cay- liked the idea that they picked you up from the ship so no tendering. I don't think it should be considered for beginners. We went out very deep -- the guides were great but i found it a bit strenuous. My kids started it-but turned back for the beach. mostly because my 7 year old couldn't handle it and they would watch him as i continued on. OUr favorite snorkeling trip was in st. thomas on the Castaway Girl. Sailboat so you could snorkel at your own pace and then get back in the boat. Rum punch and a great crew. Enjoy.
We did Goff's Cay in Belize a few years ago. It was fabulous. It works for experienced or beginners. The boat came directly to the ship...and then went to the Cay. They dropped people off that did want to snorkel from the boat onto a pier...and you could sun or snorkel directly from the beach. Or, you could stay with the boat and go a little ways away (with the Cay in view the entire time) and snorkel from the boat. If things got challenging, you could always get back on the boat.
We did swimming with the Dolphins last week in Cozumel...it was an amazing experience.
