Sharks, Stingrays and Tarpon!
I have done this same itinerary before and had a great time but our tour guide Natalie really made the difference this time. She loves what she does and does it well. If you are in Belize and want to experience the reef, local food, culture and see what Belize has to offer this is for you! Just the boat ride to Caye Caulker is worth it even if you don't snorkel you better Belize it!

Great tour guides, our small group allowed more personal attention
Nov 2021
We were a small group, only 6 guests, which made for an enjoyable tour with plenty of attention & conversation with our guides. After a 40 min. motorboat ride from Belize City out to Caulker Caye, we took a potty break then went out a mile to snorkel the reef for 40-45 mins. Then we moved to a shallow sandy area for 20-25 mins. where many nurse sharks and stingrays swam with us near the boat while we could stand waist-deep and touch them! They even took us to a shore cove where we got the chance to feed some 2.5-3 ft. tarpon for 10-12 mins. while they would leap out of the water to snatch baitfish we held out over the side of our boat. What Fun!

Our tour guides, Natalie & Stacy, were excellent; friendly, very helpful & informative. They explained the use of provided snorkeling equipment (including life-jackets), the reef environment we were seeing, and pointed out many colorful fish & corals. Stacy even took some underwater reef photos for me... Nice. We saw a larger boat nearby at the reef that had people who booked their tour through their cruise ship... there were about 30 folks on that boat! Our smaller group tour experience had to be better than they had. Highly recommend Splash Wave tours!

The best way to start our vacation!!
Nov 2021 • Friends
Okay, literally, this was probably one of the best experiences of our lives. Our captain Patrick and guide Stacy were phenomenal! They answered all our questions and were very knowledgeable about everything Belize. They were both welcoming and authentic. They provided all our gear to snorkel and pointed out fish as we swam. We even got rum punch and pineapple as a snack in between snorkeling. We got to feed fish and spend a good deal of time at Cage Caulker as well. Overall, I wish I could give this tour more than five stars. We loved our time and would recommend this to anyone! Note: our butts were a bit sore since there was no seat padding so keep that in mind if your booty is sensitive.

Sep 2021 • Friends
First of all let me say. If you are not absolutely sure that you can climb a ladder into a rocking boat don’t do this tour. However if you can then this is an amazing experience! I thought I could climb the ladder no problem however it was really hard. But Natalie and Captain James and the rest of the crew helped get me back in the boat like champs! They are great. The corals you will see are breathtaking. I never imagined seeing such beautiful reef. Straight out of a David Attenborough documentary type stuff. The sharks, rays, fishes, all so beautiful. I’m so glad we chose this experience. I will never forget it! Thank you so much for taking care of us and showing us your beautiful coral reef 💕🏝

Spectacular day of adventure and beautiful sites.
Jun 2021 • Family
We had to make some changes from group tour to private tour, but once we took care of that, it was a magical day for me and my daughter. We fed huge tarpons by hand, snorkeled around the coral reef, got to see manatees in their natural habitat, and she swam with nurse sharks and stingrays. We had a wonderful lunch on Caye Caulker Island, and saw a pod of dolphins on the way home back to port. Tour guide and captain were amazing. Highly recommended.

Thanks Stacy and crew for an unforgettable experience snorkeling in Belize! Swimming over the coral reef and seeing marine life up close was amazing!! The crew was exceptional and truly appreciated how much they wanted us to see and enjoy the excursion (I’m not a strong swimmer but was given lots of help, support and encouragement !!!) Highly recommend - provided the equipment and ensured prompt return (Royal Carribean)

Like swimming in an aquarium
Jan 2020
Initially things were a little disorganized, but once we got underway all was well. We were well briefed and the equipment was clean and in good working order. The dive spot was excellent with lots of fish to see. The nurse sharks were fascinating as were the stingrays. The restaurant for lunch was disappointing, so I would recommend going elsewhere for lunch. Overall, an excellent tour.

AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING
Jan 2020 • Couples
Thanks Natalie and crew for an unforgettable day! This excursion is the perfect taste of Belize, especially if your time is limited by a cruise (I came in on the Carnival Breeze). It's not just snorkeling. You get to eat local food (I recommend the chicken kabob), explore Caye Caulker, hand feed tarpon fish, snorkel the reef, and of course snorkel with sharks & rays. While on Caye Caulker, make sure to find the small animal sanctuary just a few paces down the street to the left of the restaurant - it's free to pet the dogs! Have some Belizean ice cream at a shop down the street to the right of the restaurant. (The cookies & cream is to die for). Poke your head into as many shops as time allows. Each one has something unique. Invest in an underwater camera for the snorkeling. You'll be sorry you didn't have one! Hand feeding tarpon fish takes lots of bravery, but they are such cool creatures! Be sure you have sunscreen...it's an open boat with no shade. Sit near the front for a fun ride! BOOK THIS EXCURSION. Don't hesitate!

The trip was off the charts!
Jan 2020
Had an amazing time snorkeling with the sharks and rays. Would recommend this tour to anyone interested in seeing Caye Caulker and the reef. The group was very large with people with different physical abilities. There is no limit on who can participate in the event and that made me a little nervous because I didn't want anyone to get hurt.
