Snorkeling Carrie Bow Caye was interesting and good, but not exceptional. Carrie Bow Caye is located on the barrier reef at a cut that is often used by boats heading back and forth to Glover’s Reef.
We snorkeled the south end of Carrie Bow Caye, after our morning ocean crossing sailing back from Glover’s.
It was a small area and healthy, which is to be expected right on the barrier reef with all the flowing currents moving in and out of the barrier cut.
What We Saw While Snorkeling Carrie Bow Caye
There was a nice variety of hard corals that were very healthy, as well as some beautiful soft corals.
Like many of the barrier reef areas in Belize, there was not a great number of fish, but we did see some beautiful fish like a Queen Triggerfish and a long trumpetfish trying to look inconspicuous.

Blurry Fish, Rotten Colors, Garbage Pictures
That does not look like what I saw! See our snorkeling camera pages for tips on selecting a good snorkeling camera, and how to use it for great pictures.
Like many spots in Belize the sponges were very interesting, like the Black Ball Sponge in this image.
