What a incredible day! A quick tender ride from the ship. The snorkeling was amazing and the island was beautiful. A special shout out to the staff; especially Amir! I had a wonderful day.

The man made island was OK. The water was beautiful on the far side of the side. There were only 1 men's restroom and 1 ladies' restroom. There were several changing stalls outside. The beach is more crushed rocks than sandy. The food was OK....More

It's obvious the high scores were probably placed by the tender or island employee's. We were sold on Starfish Island as a great beach get-away in Belize where they provide umbrellas and beach chairs and you'll enjoy beautiful sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. After...More

Starfish Island is an excursion you can book from your cruise line. It's a 10-15 min boat ride to the Island as all the cruise ships "tender port". When you get here, hurry and find a chair for the day. Everyone arrives all at once...More

We took the tender over to the island and at first I was worried, because there were trees and vegetation growing right to the water. Then we rounded the curve, and there it was. A white Sandy beach with turquoise water. There is a floating...More

Hi there. Yes, we used life swim jackets while snorkeling for kiddos. They are older now and can swim well so not as critical, yet we still will advise them to be safe if it is a good distance from shore. It is truly... More
