With a remote location like ours, nothing beats a beach trip quite like our snorkeling adventure tour that departs from Caves Branch at 6:00AM enroute to the coastal village of Hopkins in southern Belize. This lovely village offers some of the best snorkelling opportunities in the country. After meeting your guide and boarding a certified boat, your captain will head off in the direction of the Barrier Reef of Belize for a two stop snorkelling day trip then later stopping at one of the research stations at South Water Caye.
Snorkeling on the reef of Belize is one of the most amazing nature encounters possible. Your guide will identify the various reef formations that you are most likely to see, share how they are formed and point out beautiful reef formation, sea turtles, colourful fish, sting ray and even conch. A highlight would be to see a seahorse- and yes, this is likely, especially once you get to the island dock.
The boat returns to the mainland beach just after mid-day, which will allow you to have a delicious lunch (not included in the tours) and spend some time in the afternoon on the sandy beach of Hopkins. The Caves Branch van returns to pick you up at around 4:30PM – getting you back to the lodge just in time to clean up for dinner!
