See George Eiley at Coral Beach Dive Shop for a great all day trip on a classic wooden sail boat, beach bar-b-que and some great spots.

We just returned to the cold,rainy,mud season, Pacific Northwest after two beautiful weeks at Banana Beach resort on AC. For an amazing snorkle experience try to hook up with Alphonse. We booked him through the desk at Banana Beach Resort south of town. He knows every fish and coral by name and some personaly!We also did a really cool trip to Caye Calker on a large Cattamarran with a snorle stop at Hol Chan on the way and a stop at Shark Ray alley on the way back. You get to have a nice lunch break on Caye Calker. Good cheaper food there. We ate at the resaurant nearest the dock. This was a trip with Hustler Tours found on the dock, northern third of town.

I too just returned from a stay at Banana Beach.

Some of the boats I saw leave the dock would have been illegal in the US. Easily 25-30 people on a boat built for 18. People shoulder to shoulder. It's not a long trip though.

Maybe I got lucky: 7 dives and the Hol Chan snorkle trip (I did scuba and the wife snorkled). The most on any boat was 8 people (oopse, 10 people on the Night dive with Amigos).

I have to recommend playing it by ear and not pre-booking fir the hol-chan snorkle trip. Walk the beach and talk to an operator, look at the boats and ask how many people. No matter what, do the Hol chan/ shark ray thing. I was impressed.

Were you on the blue cat that left from the Royal Palms dock on Wednesday (3/28)? If so was it rough going out there? I was wondering how a cat would fare that day (or the stomachs of the passengers). The swells where I was at (scuba on the reef) were maybe 6 feet at times. It was hard going even with the large boat we had.
