Designated areas in the protected marine reserve provide you with some of the most attractive coral in the world, with abundant species of fish, turtles, and sharks all calling Belize’s barrier reef their home.

  • If you only snorkel in one place while in Belize make it Silk Cay. Movie-like setting, gorgeous. Saw great array of corals and fish - lionfish, barracuda, sea turtles, nurse sharks, rays, great time. 
  • What a wonderful experience. The boat picked us up at our Hotel dock, the Ocean Club resort. It took about an hour boat ride to reach the silk cay marine reserve. We then snorkeled for about 45 minute...  more »
  • Absolutely unique... A small bumpy (of course weather dependent) navigation on a small beautiful island. Then just to enjoy. Coral, sharks, turtles, rays etc etc etc highly recommended!
