Snorkeling Caye Caulker
by: Galen & Nicole

Caye Caulker is more laid back and a bit less touristed than Ambergris Caye. But we do not believe there is any good snorkeling from shore on Caye Caulker, so you will need to take boat trips out to the reef.

We know that they run trips up to Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley, the same as would happen from Ambergris. But you probably will also be able to snorkel some of the closer reef cuts near Caye Caulker, at North Pass and at South Pass. The barrier reef is a bit over a mile from Caye Caulker.

You may just want to call ahead of time and confirm what trips are available, because it may be more limited than at Ambergris. Have fun!

Caye Caulker has the same trips available with many different companies as Ambergris does. There is some great snorkeling in Caye Caulker at the split! Caye Caulker is just a much more chill, laid back island than Ambergris!

I snorkeled at the Split and there was nothing there. Skip it. Book a trip out to the reef. It is around $30 and well worth it.
