Snorkel tour recommendation?

We will be in San Pedro in June, my wife and I and our 6 year old. All very novice snorkelers. We want a trip to hol Chan and shark alley and if possible would like to combine this with either some fishing, beach time, or something along those lines that all would enjoy. I think a catamaran would be nice but open to other suggestions. Likey looking at part of a group tripmrather than booking the whole boat for ourselves. Any tips?

Not real sure about a six yr old at hol Chan. Consider Mexico rocks, less people and plenty to see. Not sure about cats, we always do private so we can snorkel, fish and bbq on our schedule.

TuffnNuff runs tours to HolChan using catamarans and we have always liked their tours. If your 6 year old is a good swimmer and the water is calm you should be fine. She'll be wearing a life jacket and you can keep her close.

We booked a trip in 2016 on a big sailboat and had a blast. The trip included 4 snorkeling spots, all drinks, snacks, and an incredible lunch. There are several tour companies that book for this boat but you will save money by going directly through the owner. There was approximately 15 people on our trip so there was plenty of room. 2 bathrooms on board.

In 2017 we used Captain Oliver with Cari'Bean Tours. Smaller boat, covered and has a bathroom. The trip included 3 snorkeling spots and a home cooked meal on a private island. Captain Oliver is very patient and would be great with your 6 year old.

YOLO also offers a group trip. Nice boat. We did their booze cruise but never tried the snorkeling trip. Definitely next time.

Good luck, you'll love Belize.
