Where is the best place to snorkeling? Is this something we can do ourselves, or do we need a guide type thing?

There are some places that you can at least get a taste of what the snorkling is like without getting a guide, but to see much you really need to go out. I felt the snorkling near Placencia was the best. All the waters we saw were beautiful however.

I think it is safe to say that the Best snorkeling in Belize is at Hol Chan/Shark Ray Alley. This is a guided tour. Rodales Scubadiving Magazine claims it is one of the top 3 snorkel sites in the world. Stay away during cruise ship days Wed Thurs. The cost is usually 25-30 USD for a half day at both locations. Also expect a 5 USD park fee. If you want to stay away from the crowds try to go with a small outfit and during off hours. Most shops go at 9:00AM and 2:00PM.

lyyon, I do all my snorkeling/diving with Tulu. He works off the Coral Beach dock and will take you to Shark Ray or even better, Tres Cocos and Mexico Rocks. You can snorkel as long as you want, you can fish/beach BBQ & snorkel if you want a fun day long trip and he can tell you all kinds of neat stuff about AC. Just check on the dock for him, if he isn't there Ana at the dive shop will get ahold of him for you.

I agree Tulu is the best by far. If you don't believe it just Belize It! Tell him, Becky , Lisa & Rachel sent you. Have him take you to the Palapa Bar. Also tell him I miss him & hope to see him soon.

For a real laid back snorkeling trip ask for Mercedes Valdez and his "Glass Bottom Boat" small motor, little boat for that matter of fact, goes slow but knows the sites. KBG :p

You could also find Tulu playing Dominos at Coconuts Beach Bar at about 6-6:30.

Oh good! Someone to play dominoes with in a few weeks! I'll be sure to bring my Cuban set down with me. If I lose, I can always blame it on Margie's mixers.
See y'all Oct 11....
