Just north of the bridge SeaStar is a great dive shop with well trained, knowledgeable and consistent staff. We've done a lot of scuba diving and snorkelling with them as they have some of the best maintained equipment on the island. Yesterday we did a half day of Reef fishing and it was phenomenal.

We used SeaStar at Dive Bar to do an afternoon snorkeling trip. We did two locations, Hol Chan and Shark & Ray alley. It was total about a 3 hour adventure. They offered two times 9am one 2pm. We did a 2pm trip and my husband and I ended up being the only ones on the tour after another couple canceled so it was like a private charter! Ricky and Jerry were our guide and captain and they were informative and funny and great to go with! It was nice when we got in the water they kept us away from other large groups and we had plenty of space. Ricky coaxed a moray eel out of some coral for us to get up close with. We got some good pictures with our underwater camera but he even took our camera and got some amazing ones! At Hol Chan we saw a large variety of sea life and coral. When we got to shark and ray alley, they fed the sharks off one side of the boat while we jumped in the other and snorkeled around to be in the action of nurse sharks, jack fish and sting rays! This area didn’t have much else to see as far as coral and sea life but to say you swam with sharks and rays is pretty awesome. Most of the tour was spent at Hol Chan with about a 15-20 minute stop to swim with the sharks. I would surely recommend sea star to anyone looking for an amazing snorkel adventure!

Could not be more happy with my experience! Between the giant eagle ray and barracudas on our Hol Chan dive to the swarms of nurse sharks in shark ray alley we had an amazing time with Seastar! Ask for captain Jerry and dive master Ricky!

We loved our snorkelling trip with Ricky & Joe! we went to Hol Chan with another tour company the day after (they are the most reviewed here) and that trip didn't compare with our trip to Mexico Rocks with Sea Star.

If you are deciding between two sites, I highly recommend going for Mexico Rocks - far less tourists, and I felt like there was much more to see. It's also the place where you can see "the heart of Belize' and the "Belize" letters underwater. When we booked our trip, it wasn't a highly requested trip so we just have it for the two of us.

Ricky and Joe was absolutely amazing though. they are so knowledgeable about the fish and corals, and Ricky can make this big air bubbles that attracts the fish to us. Joe was our captain, and led our second snorkeling spot. He was so patient in making sure we saw the fish he spotted, even if that meant I need to maneuver a couple of times to get the viewing angle right. We saw a giant puffer fish, moray eel, several stingrays, nurse sharks, and lovely corals. We definitely thought we had a great trip! When we got back to the boat, they also shared some fresh cut fruits for us on the way back.

All in all I highly recommend doing yous snorkelling trip with Sea Star, and you'll definitely be in great hands. Thanks again Ricky & Joe!!

Ricky and Jerry are great at what they do, leading dives and snorkeling trips! Saw so much and they are just plain good and nice people. Never know what you will see but in both diving and snorkeling trips we saw eels, turtles, spotted rays, sharks, and much much more. Highly recommend.
