  • Goff´s Caye is an island of coral sand, which can be reached by boat after half an hour more or less starting from the port of Belize. It is a small island close to the second reef in the world, which makes it very special for snorkeling. We hired this excursion by the Ecotours company and had total satisfaction, especially with the wonderful experience of 45 minutes of snorkeling (equipment included). It cost us $ 55 per person. On the island there more than health services and some food vendors, so I recommend to carry what is necessary.

  • Go here at least once a year. Most beautiful snorkeling ever...right off shore. Water is beautiful! Hermit crabs and turtles on island. Absolutely one of my most favorite places.
  • Amazing little island. This was not on the cruise ship's excursions. I asked one of the boat tender guys as we went over to mainland 'where we could snorkel?" He said, I know a guy! Boom. Next thing we know, we are running out to here. Fantastic trip!
  • Beautiful spot to spend a day, just don't plan on only going for a couple of hours unless you have arranged it that way before hand
  • My daughter and I took a snorkeling trip to Goff's Caye and had a great experience. After snorkeling nearby, we went to the caye, enjoyed the beach, had lunch, saw a crab, and I climbed a tree and got a coconut.
