Summary


Enjoy a scenic boat ride through Belize's inland mangrove islands on your way to interact with nurse sharks and rays in the crystal clear shallow waters at the edge of the famous Belize Barrier Reef.


Description


Visit the edge of Belize's Barrier Reef for a shark and ray encounter before enjoying some time at a tropical island getaway. Depart the pier for a 55 min. (approx.) scenic and fun boat ride to the charming tropical island of Caye Caulker. This historic little island, is located along the edge of Belize's Barrier Reef, the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. Check out beautiful coral formations and marine life abound in these pristine tropical waters. The shark (the docile nurse shark) and ray encounter takes place just a short distance from the island, on a shallow sandy area, adjacent to the Barrier Reef, where the water is calm and crystal clear. Choose to enter the water from the boat in small groups or just watch from the comfort of the boat. Each group will have their own knowledgeable local guide, who will entice these gentle marine animals to come up close personal encounter between you and these unique creatures of the sea. Float or just stand on the bottom and let your hands slide along the smooth sides of the sharks and rays, as they swim by you in close proximity. This is truly an close-up and personal experience with Mother Nature, you will depart with a renewed appreciation for the wonderful creations that live under the sea. Climb back aboard your waiting vessel for the short ride back to the island, where you will dock. Have a chance to purchase a local meal or snack, as well as various beverages. This charming venue has several thatch covered structures along the edge of the Caribbean, where you can relax and enjoy your meal, sip on a cool drink, while either sitting in a swinging chair, at a table or even "hanging-out" in a hammock. You will have time to explore the village, purchase a souvenir or hand-feed the frisky jumping tarpon, before departing from this tropical paradise. On the ride back to the pier, you will be served complimentary rum punch or regular tropical punch and listen to relaxing Caribbean vibes.
