What you'll do

There will be 4 stunning snorkel stops for you to enjoy: The Channel –Shark Ray Alley – The Coral Garden – Shipwreck.

I will be in the water with you at all times, pointing out to you what we pass and encounter along the way. You will spend most of your time within the marine reserve which has an amazing amount to see if explored quietly and respectfully.
You are sure to spot some of the 500 species of fish, 50 species of corals, turtles, manatees, and dolphins. I wish we could guarantee to see all the major highlights, but this is the wild!

We know the best places to find them all and will take you there so that you can enjoy these beautiful sea creatures in their natural homes. Once we are sure you are confident snorkeling, we will stop outwith the reserve giving you the chance to explore on your own.

You will enjoy tropical fruits along the way and as we cruise back, enjoying a beautiful sunset, we will treat you to homemade rum-punch / Juice and ceviche. If the sky is clear we will see the amazing trillion stars over the expansive ocean with no lights to interrupt us.

I have 2 other guides, one who will join us, that are my childhood friends, and we three love what we do and have learned much from each other. We cannot wait to show you an amazing time in the azure crystal clear water, a place we are blessed to call home and enjoy every single day. One l

I'm a Belizian native brought up on the island. I grew up on the ocean and have worked on tour boats around the Caye for 9 years and have observed first hand environmental changes. Developing a serious passion for conservation, sustainability and marine preservation and driven by a desire to do things differently, I set up my own tour business 18 months ago, I Tour Belize, so that I can offer more than just an unforgettable local experience but also add learning on the diversity of eco-systems, the role of protecting biologically diverse areas and supporting local cultures and economies.
Licensed as a Marine Tour Guide and Boat Captain.

Where you'll be

Channels, our stops are on many travellers bucket-list with its abundant marine life. Manatee spotted eagle rays and green turtles. It was the first marine reserve in Belize 30+ years ago
Shark Ray Alley - we will see the great nurse shark and friendly rays gliding through the ocean
Coral Garden - in depths of up to 18ft (6m) with beautiful structures of corals as high as houses, as if you were flying through a great city.

This experience was amazing, by far the most beautiful snorkeling I've done. We saw nurse sharks, stingrays, coral, turtles, and many many cool fish. Heber was the best tour guide and is very knowledgeable about the ocean and marine life. Highly recommend!

So f*#@ng great! I've snorkeled in Thailand, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and a few other places and this is one of my favorite experiences. We swam with stingrays, nurse sharks, turtles, and so much more marine life. Heber and Sandy were exceptional making sure that we felt comfortable and they were more than happy to adjust things as needed based on the conditions and our preferences. They certainly went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with the experience. Would highly recommend this experience to anyone in the area.

An absolutely fantastic day! Heber showed up on time and made us feel welcome immediately. He told us about the island, about Belize, about so many interesting things. He and Sandy made the day super special. The snorkeling was absolutely amazing, then Heber treated us to special surprises as we went along, including time on Caye Caulker. We would come back just to spend more time with Heber and Sandy! 10/10 would recommend!

My wife and I took a snorkeling tour with Heber and we couldn't have been happier with our choice to book with Heber through Air BnB. I did a bunch of research into other providers but none of them seemed to be as personal as Heber's. The tour was great, being on a small sail boat rather than a speed boat made the experience that much better. Heber is a great guide with lots of local knowledge and a true passion for the work he does. Valentine was a great captain and piloted the boat with expertise that you can only gain from years of being on the water. We stopped at some of the popular spots, saw many varieties of sea life, swam amongst sharks and rays, Heber was in the water with us at the stops. After some great snorkeling Heber and Valentine treated us to some fresh fruit, followed by delicious conch ceviche, and of course rum punch. The timing of the tour was also perfect. We got to the snorkeling stops as some of the bigger groups were leaving so it felt like we had the places to ourselves. As we sailed back to Caye Caulker and ate our ceviche, we were treated to a beautiful sunset over the water. If you are looking to book a snorkeling tour on Caye Caulker I highly recommend Heber's tour.

Heber was fantastic and the Snorkeling/Sailing cruise was unbelievable! Heber was very friendly, personable, and knowledgeable. It was easy to see he and the skipper knew what they were doing and had done this many many times. Conversation was pleasant and interesting. We felt safe and comfortable knowing we were in good hands. Highly recommended.

Non seulement le lieu est magique mais pouvoir bénéficier des connaissances d'Herber, de l'accompagnement de Valentin et du plaisir de la voile c'est fabuleux. Nous avons nagé avec des raies, des tortues, des requins et de nombreux poissons. Le ceviche d'Herber était excellent. Merci à tous les deux
