About Location
Shark Ray Alley is located at Zone D of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. Shark Ray Alley got its name after fishermen and tour operators realized that a large number of nurse sharks and rays would gather at the location to scavange the scraps from the fish local fishermen had caught. Fishermen would clean the fish they caught at Shark Ray Alley.

Today, Shark Ray Alley has evovled into one of the most popular snorkeling destinations in Belize. It is a must visit destination. You will get to swim with sharks, rays, turtles, and fish.
