Snorkel at Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley

Please request prices with front desk, or contact us online.

Hol Chan Marine Reserve is located about 30 minutes south by boat. Maximum 30 feet deep, excellent visibility. Here the water lover can see a great number of Caribbean fish like snapper and grouper, parrotfish and surgeonfish. Rays are also often seen here together with the moray eels. Hol Chan was translated from the Mayan which means a little blue channel. Also seen on site are eels, spider crabs, lobster, and nurse sharks. All flora and fauna within the reserve are protected, and feeding fish is discouraged.

Shark Ray Alley is an 8-10 feet deep area sporting abundant pet Nurse Sharks, Sting Rays and many other types of Marine Life. The area is shallow and easy for camera shots. A real adventure surely awaits you. As soon as your boat arrives in the area, the Dive Master points out all of the dark shadows in the shallow (eight foot deep) waters. These are the sharks and rays that hear the boat approach and come in search of a few scraps of fish. There are also many other varieties of marine life, such as grouper, yellow-tail, and moray eel.
