This snorkel spot combined with Shark Ray Alley = definitely a Belizean highlight! Saw plenty of colourful fishies, moray eel and coral. Oh, and people, quite a few of them too. Area is good for both divers and snorkellers, though it's rather shallow for divers. Enjoy the second biggest reef in the world!
(Came here with Island Dream Tours, by the way - highly recommended!)

I. Would recommend this tour. You see lots of fish and seabed plants. The location is protected from the big waves since it is inside the reef. We did a tour with shark alley with this and liked both locations.

The best snorkeling trip I have been on was to this place! Would go again just to spend more time there. Saw tons of fish, coral, and beauty.

We did a day cat trip and stopped here to snorkel. It was awesome, lots of coral and fish. Our guide drew out a huge eel. The tide is kind of strong and if your not a decent swimmer, you might want to stay around the edges of the park. Swimming through it, the coral is all the way to the surface of the water, you have to be careful not to get pushed into it. I would highly recommend this for snorkeling. I saw a few divers, not worth it. Its only 20 feet deep all around the reef.
