Do not miss this chance to swim with sharks, barracudas, and rays - it was the highlight of our trip! If you are nervous, stay in the boat because the visibility was incredible and you can see still see the sharks and larger rays and fish.

This was the second snorkeling stop for my wife and I while in Belize after Hol-Chan. Our Searious adventure had us get in the water as they fed the sharks and rays, and we also had a decent amount of other fish nearby as well. They all get very close to you, but the nurse sharks are very used to... More

We visited Belize on our honeymoon and this was my husband's favorite part of the trip! The guide placed chum in the water and the sharks and rays instantly surrounded the area.. we hopped in and started snorkeling. It was very exciting and a sight to see!

I liked shark alley which may be in the marine reserve. Lots of friendly nurse sharks and sting rays that come up to all new boats hoping for a hand out. For years the fishermen cleaned fish at this location so the sharks and rays are conditioned to being fed each day. The other fish also were plentiful in this... More

If you are going to San Pedro Belize you must take a trip to Shark Alley. I recommend using Richland Tours. You can go to their website. I have used them for both my vacation trips in 2013 + 2016. Shark Alley is really cool to snorkel.

Did shark Ray Alley with Amigos del Mar dive shop, and our guide was very very knowledgeable about the area, history and all the different species of fish and rays, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it even for a scuba diver to try

You really get to swim with sharks, about 8-10 feet in length. They stay by the boat as long as they're being fed. It was intense, but never felt in danger.

The waters were rough this day, but the visibility is very good. We saw HUGE stingray and nurse sharks, but the nurse sharks are very skittish. Make sure you're one of the first in the water so you can be there when the sharks come to get chum from the tour guides. Otherwise they scatter and you will miss them!

One of my favorite snorkeling trips. Could not believe we swam with sharks! Also saw a huge turtle. So much fun.

Didn't really know what to expect and it was surprisingly great. Water was clear and there were a lot of sharks and rays, the bait container was smothered by rays with sharks doing their best to get at it...so close.
