  • 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.
