Shark Ray Alley, Ambergris Caye

(4.5/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Swim with sharks at Shark Ray Alley, a dive site on Belize’s largest island. Take a boat ride to the area, and watch the nurse sharks and rays approach the boat. Snorkel, swim, or dive in the shallow waters, while the sharks and rays swim in circles around you. The guides will often feed the sharks as you explore the reef, observe the fish, or take memorable photographs with an underwater camera.
