We hired Manuel and his glass bottom boat to go to Hot Chan & Belize Barrier Reef. He was excellent and made the first snorkeling experience memorable and comfortable. Highly recommend this service and guide.

The staff was great and the view from the glass bottom boat was amazing! You get to see some great views and all from the comfort of the boat! They also offer guided snorkeling for those that want to get in and get up close and personal with the reef. They took our group first to swim with the sharks... More

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
