Snorkeling in Placencia

  and Other Tours: Fishing, Diving, island hopping 

Discover some of the best snorkeling near Placencia by booking a private tour to Silk Caye/Turtle Alley, Laughing Bird Caye National Park or neighboring islands boasting colorful coral gardens teeming with fishes and critters.

Apart from remarkable snorkeling, there are plenty of other activities to do in and around Placencia. One can live the life of a fisherman by hunting for lobster or conch (seasonal) or go spearfishing. Dare to be more adventurous, then join the force in fighting the Lionfish infestation.

For something more relaxing, take part in the Monkey River Eco-Tour for a combination of a leisurely 15 minute boat ride from Placencia followed by a cruise up the river catching sight of crocodiles, a wide variety of native birds and other wildlife including the howler monkeys who you might not always see but will definitely hear.

Let us make your Belizean adventures a reality!
