We toured Shark Ray Alley and Hol Chan Marine Reserve. The boat operator made sure that those that didn't snorkel got a great view of both places. I was so pleased to have done this.

We wanted to go on an outing that wouldn't take all day or be too expensive. This was the perfect answer. We boarded the boat in San Pedro and the guide took us to 3 separate snorkeling locations. We snorkeled with nurse sharks, a green turtle and even a manatee! Water and punch and snorkeling gear was provided and our... More

My mother & I had a fabulous trip to Shark Ray Alley & Hol Chan on the Reef Runner. I had done this trip before as 'snorkel only' without being on the Reef Runner, but it was really fun to see the sharks, fish & more through the glass bottom as well as by snorkeling. Definitely recommended & Capt Carlos... More

This tour was fantastic! We were traveling with 3 children under the age of 10 and they couldn't have had a better time! The guide was great, the service when booking the tour was amazing...all in all a must do when in San Pedro! Adults and kids will have a great time experiencing sea life through the glass bottom boat!!

This was an excellent half day adventure to explore the best snorkeling areas of Ambergris Caye. The staff were very casual and friendly. The low cost operation does not have a "pier" so it was a bit difficult to find. We read about the company on line. We contacted the owner through email- which worked very well while we were...

This is not the nicest or the biggest boat you can go on, but it gives people who are not real "water frienly" a chance to experience the reef. My wife and I went on this trip with my parents, who are not water people. When we got out to Hol Chan, Manuel was fantastic with my mom and a... More

Had a terrible time locating the management, but worth it. The boat is right on the beach next to the Belize City ferry dock, but the office is one street off the beach next to Sunshine realty. Don't be afraid to ask if you can't find it. This was perfect for us as my wife doesn't snorkel and I couldn't... More

I found Reef Runner on Trip Advisor, I chose this company because they offer snorkeling and a glass bottom boat tour. My husband did not want to go in the water and I did so this was perfect for us. My husband was still able to enjoy the reef and all the sea creatures. Manuel picked us up right from... More

We were the only two people going out on the day we booked this excursion. Stops were at the same three spots the drive, snorkel tours routinely take you to visit. They provided snorkel gear non alcoholic drinks and a knowledgable guide. Unlike most glass bottom boats this small vessel provides a very good view of the ocean bottom. Coral... More

The glass bottom boat tour was a great option for us. We had been snorkeling the previous week in Costa Rica and were not so impressed, plus neither of us really wanted to go in with sharks. So, this was the perfect option. It's much slower than other boats, but worth it to see a lot through the glass bottom.... More
