Belize Snorkeling Trips
Belize is a small country on the Caribbean coast in northern Central America, just south of Mexico, with Guatemala neighboring to the west. It is a wonderful snorkeling destination. The 500 mile long barrier reef and outer atolls are home to reefs that are right at the surface which is perfect for snorkelers. They are healthy with a mixture of hard corals and gorgeous purple sea fans and other soft corals. In addition to the corals you can see much more marine life like colorful sponges, lobsters, and spotted eagle rays and nurse sharks cruising over the reef.
Our trips partner has created these Belize snorkeling trips to get folks like you to the best snorkel spots in the area. Trips are based at a resort, or on a liveaboard yacht. We have more information down the page about the benefits of group snorkeling trips from resorts and liveaboards. Below are the current Belize snorkeling trips on offer.

What Are These Belize Snorkeling Trips Like?
We are always looking to bring you exciting trips to some of the best places on earth, like the Belize snorkeling trips above. Many of our readers have experienced the best snorkeling holidays of their lives on these trips. If you have never gone on one of these trips you can get a general idea of some of the types of adventures we like to share below.
Liveaboard Snorkeling Trips
There is a world of difference going on liveaboard trips designed for snorkelers, instead of a mixed boat with divers, because most of the time the boat is really focused on the divers, the reefs are too deep, and snorkelers are sometimes treated like second class citizens! On a snorkeler only boat, every spot you visit, from remote atolls to barrier reefs, has shallow snorkeling at perfect depths. And instead of being limited to only an hour on the water because of diving schedules, you normally spend and hour and a half to two hours at each spot.
And being able to be immersed in snorkeling two or three times a day, in a different amazing spot each time, for a week or two, is really a great way to explore the ocean. You get to see so many different ecosystems and types of fish and coral reefs. It’s a very different experience than snorkeling tours that go out for a few hours in popular tourist areas. These are more like snorkeling expeditions.
These types of snorkel trips are full service, where your food is prepared for you, your rooms are taken care of, and all you have to do is get in the water, rinse and repeat.
Resort Snorkeling Trips
There are also resorts with beautiful house reefs for snorkeling and small boats that can take you to wonderful nearby snorkeling reefs. You can choose whether you want to venture out or stay close each day. The best resorts are usually remote and include some meals with your stay. These spots make for great Pacific Islands snorkeling trips.
Snorkeling programs like these are hard to find though. But we have a fantastic partner we work with who creates these types of adventures.
