Hol Chan Marine Reserve
We feel proud to host the world’s second largest barrier reef and the warm and crystal clear waters of the Caribbean just to keep making it better to enjoy a memorable snorkeling experience. The Hol Chan is one of Mother Nature’s Best kept secrets here in Belize. The Maya name is the Little Channel, where local fishermen used the channel to cross to the deep waters of the Caribbean.
You will be leaving from the Split at Caye Caulker to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve going to the famous Shark Ray Alley, where you will have the privilege to snorkel with the nurse shark and sting rays, or just admire these marine creatures when feeding. The Second stop is at the northern channel of the barrier reef, where you will snorkel for 45 minutes with the Green Sea turtles, the spotted eagle ray, the queen angelfish, and different types of groupers, sea stars, hogfish, to mention a few. Following with the third stop at paradise on earth, the Coral Garden. There you will spend another memorable time with over 70 species of corals; such as the vase sponge, Sea urchin, Sea anemone, Giant tube sponge, barrel sponge, leafy stinging coral, the common sea fan, and the elliptical star coral to mention a few. From there you will be pampered with tropical fruits, chips and salsa, light sandwiches and the mojo happy juice, while enjoying the boat ride heading to the tarpon feeding. Belize hosts a large amount of cave systems, and Caye Caulker is not an exemption. The tarpon is the family of the bone fish, they can grow form 4–8 ft. long and weighs 60–280 lbs., and resides in the caves; we called them the giant fish. We leave the best for last; here you will be feeding the giant tarpon with live bait (sardine). Just seeing how this big creatures jump for the bait and splashing again in the warm waters of the Caribbean is spectacular. From here you will be heading back to the Split where you can continue the party at the Lazy Lizard Bar and Grill.
