Private Day Tour: Silk Cayes and Turtle Alley Snorkeling Adventure

Select Date and Travellers
7 travellers
    What to Expect
    Meet your private captain and guide in central Placencia, and climb aboard the boat for a brief safety overview. Relax and enjoy the 1-hour ride out to the Silk Cayes, a set of small, remote islands fringed by coral reef and perfect for living out any deserted-island fantasy.

    Slip on a provided snorkeling mask and fins, and splash into the calm, clear waters of this protected marine reserve with your guide. Explore the vibrant coral and fish that surround the cayes — including several endangered species — on a snorkeling dive that’s well suited to beginners. Recharge with a traditional Belizean lunch served on the beach, and enjoy time for a stroll on the silky white sand.

    In the afternoon, ride to Turtle Alley, another great-for-snorkeling spot along the barrier reef. This area is known for as a popular gathering place for sea turtles, rays and harmless nurse sharks feeding on scraps left over by fishermen cleaning their catch. Stop for a another snorkeling dive to check out the vibrant marine life before the return trip to Placencia.

    I highly recommend Silk Caye. The snorkeling is like swimming in a fish tank with so many beautiful fish and coral.

    We only had 4 people go on the private tour with Conrad (he runs Placencia Wildside Adventures). The private tour is a little more expensive. I'm almost certain you could join a smaller group for a non-private tour. It's... More
