The dive and snorkeling crew was fantastic. They are professional, knowlegeable, friendly and concerned about both the safety and enjoyment of guests. We had an unforgettable time at Hamanasi and had fallen in love with Belize. We hope to return soon.

staff and management. We loved the snorkeling and diving.

Snorkeling at South Water Caye was a beautiful experience on
multiple days - we loved it plus the guide was quite good with fish ID.

Snorkeling at Hamanasi

Belize boasts the Western Hemisphere’s longest continuous barrier reef, approximately 185 miles of coral formations with a large variety of marine life. The Southern Barrier Reef offers several different snorkeling sites for both beginners and experienced snorkelers in a pristine environment. With visibility ranging between 60 to 100ft, snorkelers often have close encounters with eagle rays, southern stingrays, octopus and even dolphins.

The majority of our snorkeling takes place in the South Water Caye Marine Reserve where conservation and safety are the two key words. A certified Belizean Tour guide who would love to share his passion and knowledge of the ocean with you accompanies all snorkelers. For safety reasons we never dive and snorkel at the same site.

The sun in the tropics can be intense! Please take appropriate precautions. Wear sunscreen and a t-shirt or wetsuit!

Hamanasi includes snorkel gear with our snorkeling trips! We offer two different snorkeling trips:

Snorkeling from a Dedicated Snorkel Boat

Departure Time: 8:00 AM
Approximate Return Time: 1:00 PM
Food/Drinks: Snack, juice and water
What to Bring: Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, exposure protection like dive skin or T-shirt, light windbreaker for wind chill after the snorkel, camera, power bars.
Explore the reef from the comfort of a boat that can take you to a variety of snorkel sites on one trip. It takes approximately 35 minutes to the first snorkel site. Snorkel the channel at Tobacco Caye where tarpon and permit are often seen or the patch reef of Whale Shoal where you will encounter a variety of colorful reef fish, cleaner shrimp and stingrays. The weather influences our choice of snorkeling sites. When we snorkel the northern part of the Southern Barrier Reef, we usually make a stop at Man-of-War Caye where you can see a variety of nesting birds like frigates and brown boobies. On this trip entry and exit are directly from the boat, as opposed to the island based snorkeling where you can wade into the water from the beach. This trip is ideal for agile and experienced snorkelers.
