Snake Caye Snorkeling Excursion
Try snorkeling at Snake Caye now that you've experienced the jungle. Try a full day on the water to enjoy the other side of Belize - the crystal clear Caribbean. Depart the lodge early on our canopied Mexican skiff and head down the Moho River towards the sea. Your guide will occasionally slow to point out wildlife along the banks and explain the delicate mangrove ecosystems that line the river. Some of the trees you will see are hundreds of years old, and provide homes for snook, machaca, and other river fish.
At the mouth of the river you will turn north towards the Snake Cayes, a set of four small islands in the Port of Honduras Marine Reserve. They are protected by the Belizean government and designated a 'no-take' zone. The shallow water surrounding them is full of coral, fish, turtles, conchs, lobsters, and other sea life. If you've never snorkeled before, our guides will show you how. Snorkeling is a quick skill to learn and a great way to observe the sea life of the Belize Barrier Reef.
After your morning of snorkeling, swim straight up to the deserted beach of Abelone Caye and the boat will meet you there with your packed lunch. Spend the afternoon swimming, snorkeling, fishing with hand lines, and island hopping. Make a stop at the ranger's station and climb their 20-foot observation tower for a panoramic view of the Belize coastline.
The price is $25 dollars for our All-Inclusive guests and $124 for Full Board or Room Only guests. Ten guests max per trip. Lunch, snorkeling equipment, and park fees are included. This trip may occasionally depart from Punta Gorda instead of the Cotton Tree Lodge dock.
