Belize Snorkeling Tours
When you’re staying at Hatchet Caye, amazing Belize snorkeling adventures are literally right outside your door.
Our guided tour takes you to the nearby Gladden Spit, which is thriving with aquatic life. Between the months of April and June, this area has the highest concentration of Whale Sharks in Belize. Snorkeling in this area puts you at center of the action during their migratory stop.
Another treat for guests on the island is night snorkeling. The lights at the end of the pier attract fish, rays, squid, turtles and various other marine life. Guests can grab their snorkeling gear and experience the thrill of night snorkeling right off the resort pier.
A full complement of snorkel gear can also be provided for those wanting an independent snorkeling experience. The coral formations around the island are so full of life that many people spend all their underwater time right outside their cabana deck. You can choose to snorkel with your own buddy or join one of our guided Belize snorkeling tours.
Another treat for visitors is a snuba tour. Gear can be rented from our office and a guide will take you for an amazing underwater experience. Our Snuba tour costs $170 USD per person.
About 10 mins away from Hatchet Caye in the Gladden Spit marine reserve, Loggerhead turtles some as old as 150 years, roughtail stingrays, southern stingrays, spotted eagle rays and nurse sharks congregate. For decades these animals visit this particular site to feed on the leftovers from local fishermen who anchor and clean their catch in the area. The marine life has become so accustomed to getting treats this way that they come ‘running’ whenever they hear a boat. Snorkeling here is amazing and the water is shallow, about 8 – 12ft deep.
