Know More about this tour

Step aboard a motorboat for a 4-mile (6.4-kilometer), 15-minute ride to Hol Chan Marine Reserve (Maya for ‘Little Channel’), the first marine reserve established in Central America.

Explore the shallow reef of this channel as you snorkel the crystalline waters of the Caribbean. Since the area has protected status and three ecological zones, you’ll find healthy coral and sea-grass beds supporting 160 different species of fish, including large schools of reef fish like groupers, jacks and snappers.

Next, head south to your second snorkel stop, Shark Ray Alley, where you’ll see stingrays softly fanning the water with their 2- to 4-foot (.6- to 1.2-meter) wingspans. Watch the curious but gentle brown nurse sharks swim below! After your encounter with these amazing creatures of the sea, you’ll hop back aboard the boat and return to your hotel.

  • Our guide was amazing. Small boat, but better than the other boats out there. We got a lot more time in the water than other companies doing the same tour. Plus since it was a smaller group there were a lot less people which is always better when snorkeling.

  • Absolutely gorgeous sites to snorkel! Hol Chan had amazing marine life - I am an experienced scuba diver of over 15 years and saw more on this snorkel than on some dives. We were treated to sea turtles, manatees, nurse shark, moray eels, stingrays, and more. Shark Ray Alley is treat for anyone who loves to swim with marine life! Definitely recommended!

  • Beautiful day, only one other couple on our tour. Calm, clear waters. We saw manta rays, sea turtles, lots of colorful fish, jelly fish no one got stung and quite a few nurse sharks to swim with. Got some great underwater pics and videos:

  • Had a truly wonderful morning outing with these guys ..... very knowledgeable and interested in our enjoyment! Would highly recommend....saw rays, nurse sharks and many types of fish!

  • What an amazing opportunity to see the 2nd largest coral reef in the world. A must do!

  • great tour guides

  • The guides from Discovery were extremely knowledgeable and attentive to all snorkelers and divers.

  • I would never book this tour again for the following reasons. This company charged me 66.99 for this tour. The night before I went we walked by the dock and the tour was 40.00. I was booked for a 2pm tour and when I called to confirm they told me there was no afternoon tour and they could get me in the next morning. I was leaving the next morning so that was no good. They decided to put me on that mornings tour the only problem I had like 10 min to get up and rush down to the dock. The 3 hour trip only lasted 2 1/2 hours and that included them picking me up at my hotel then going to their dock for equipment. Do yourself a favor their are plenty of tour company's at a better price wait till you get down there to shop around.

  • This was incredible. It was the perfect amount of time. We were the only ones on the trip. We took a short, 20 minute boat ride from our hotel to Hol Chan. We had a guide snorkel with us and point out stuff in the water. We then traveled maybe 10 minutes to Shark Ray Alley. Our guide was awesome and let us pet the sharks and swim around with them. It was a perfect 3 hour trip and we were back at the hotel in time for lunch. Highly recommended!

  • Unexplainably beautiful and worth every cent. Traveled with our family of 5. My children aren't strong swimmers but the guides kept them close and we never once felt unsafe. The water and sea life were absolutely spectacular and abundant. This tour should not be missed.
