Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley

You don't need to be a Scuba Diver to enjoy the beautiful fish and coral of the pristine reef.

The "Holchan Marine Reserve" and "Shark & Ray Alley" are among the most famous sites near Ambergris Caye. At the Hol Chan, "cut" (a natural break in the reef) you can snorkel with an abundance of fish of all sizes; from the unique Fairy Basslet to huge Groupers, all within arms reach. The "cut" is approximately 23 m (75ft) wide and 9 m (30 ft) deep.

Starting at around 1.5m (5ft) of water you quickly come into contact with large schools of jacks, groupers, snappers and barracudas. You are then taken to the "cut" which boast remarkable coral formations along with sea turtles, spotted-eagle rays, and much more. The reserve is actually home to over 160 species of fish. Not too far from the Cut, "Shark & Ray Alley" allows for a even more trilling experience with large numbers of friendly Nurse Sharks and Southern Stingrays. Diving is not done here due to it being a fairly shallow area.

The Hol Chan "cut" is only 15 minutes (4 miles) south of San Pedro Town and last around 2 ½ hours. These sites are within the barrier reef making them ideal for snorkelers and beginning divers. Also, this is one of the only trips apart from the Blue Hole/Lighthouse Reef Atoll trip that both divers and snorkelers are on the same vessel. You should not miss out on this amazing trip.
