Belize King of the Howlers took us on this jaunt. What a great and beautiful time. We learned to snorkel and a wealth of information about conservation.

Sailed out for the day with Nautical Adventures who I would highly recommend. The Caye is just stunning and the talk from the park ranger upon your arrival provides some great insight to the conservation efforts ongoing on and around the Caye.
