Hello. We will be arriving in Belize City from a cruise ship and will be there for 9 hours. What's your best ideas for us? We don't like too large of groups, we've heard that shark ray alley is great for snorkeling or diving and we've heard that cave tubing is fun. Do you know anything about the cave tubing? Thanks for any info.

I think that you could snorkel anytime and anywhere, especially if you are on a cruise. I think that cave tubing would be neat. Did not do it last year cuz of the rain and the river was to high. But I have it marked as a to do this year.Everyone that I talked to loved it though. JUst my opinion.

I would at least get a cab to the BC municipal Airport and take the 20 minute flight to San Pedro! The trip to Cayo and back will eat up much more of your time.
Good Luck.......Richard

Your cruise ship will offer both these tours. On most ships, the cave tubing trip is the #1 most popular shore excursion and the snorkel trip to Shark Ray Alley/Hol Chan is #2 (Altun Ha ruins are usually #3).

While you can do these trips independently, if you go with the ship's tour you may get priority tendering (the Belize harbor is too shallow for big ships to dock at the piers), which can save you a lot of time. Also, you are guaranteed you will be back on time.

But there are tours offered at the Tourist Village, and for the snorkel trip you can take a water taxi to Caye Caulker or Ambergris Caye, or a flight from Municipal, and then arrange for a snorkel trip, but frankly you will probably end up paying as much or more than if you go with the ship's offering.
