For some of the most memorable snorkeling of your life, head to Silk Cay. A sandy oasis in a sea of crystal clear, turquoise waters, the cay sits above the Gulf of Honduras. 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 head just outside the reef on a dive, you'll have the opportunity to spot rare and elusive whale sharks. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Silk Cay and many more Placencia attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Placencia itinerary planner.

  • 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...  read 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!
