don't book manatee tours in winter (November to may), very few to see !!
"they are too shy" they will tell you...

plus, snorkeling equipment very old and poor quality compare to others tours (like caveman)

however the team was friendly

There’s so many snorkelling trips to choose from in Caye Caulker, but me and my girlfriend were fortunate enough to stumble on Anwar.

Our driver/guide Omar took us out on our own, on what was basically a private tour. We visited some great spots on the reef. Omar often got in the water to show us different types of fish. His knowledge was superb, and he obviously cares a lot about protecting the reef and wildlife.

We were exposed tons of sharks and stingrays. There must have been 30+ nurse sharks around the boat... and we got in the water to swim with them. It was a pretty scary — but amazing — experience. People from other trips were swimming to our boat because that’s where all the action was!

We met a bunch of very disappointed scuba divers in town the next day that hadn’t seen one single shark after an expensive full day trip! One look at our videos and they booked a snorkelling trip with Anwar the next day.

This is the trip for close-up exposure to sea life.

I can’t recommend this trip enough. Our guide was so amazing at giving us info about the marine life in the water and reassuring us that we could swim with the nurse sharks and sting rays.

We visited different sites of the barrier reef, but the real highlight was when we swam with the sharks. As we arrived, they started gathering around the boat - it was scary at first but once they were being fed, you could dive in, and it was amazing. Our guide even dived down and bought up a sting ray for us to touch!!

We also got to feed some enormous tarpons - watching them jump out the water was incredible.

This isn’t a booze cruise/party boat, it’s purely to do with marine life and it was an experience we will never forget.

Did a partial day tour led by David and it was just lovely. They set a fair price for us, and THEY DO NOT FEED THE FISH! Amado, the owner, is very passionate about environmental protection and preserving the reef for everyone. They take you to see the most amazing parts of the reef, but insist you are just there to WATCH and not touch! ABSOLUTELY choose these guys every time -- probably my 3rd tour with them and they never disappoint.

We booked with Anwar for a half day private charter. Great value for 4 of us, with fruit and water and all the snorkelling gear included and we borrowed 2 underwater cameras and put our memory cards in. (Great idea!)
Rocky & Dylan were great guides and helped with our daughters too. We saw loads of fish and then lots of nurse sharks and rays, and finally the girls got to feed the tarpons. The dropped us back to our hotel.
Really lovely trip, very professional and easy-going :-)
