Journée mémorable avec Charles et Rahim
Vraiment une journée bien remplie ! Les 2 guides ont vraiment rendu l'expérience incroyable. Les nombreux endroits visités nous ont permis de vivre de belles expériences, autant dans le bateau que dans l'eau. Impressionnants tous ces poissons et coraux ! Assez spécial de nager tout près des requins nourrices et des raies. Je vous le conseille fortement !

We had a marvelous day with Salt Life Eco Tours! The whole staff got us through every step of our Bucket List snorkeling trip with a smile and plenty of good information. Snacks of fresh fruits, rum punch and lunch were all just great! I’m sure we’ll be back for more!

So much fun!
We had the best time on this tour. Our boat stopped working and all the staff worked to problem solve and make sure we still had a great day. We saw nurse sharks and a giant barracuda! The reef was incredible!

Awesome time!!
I couldn't think of a suggestion to make the tour a better time! We had a blast with our guides Saleem and Kyle. Saleem gave so much good info about the area and Kyle was so invested in making sure we saw everything on the tour and had a great time. Saleem worked diligently to ensure we saw anything super cool under the water and keeping us all safe and together. You can tell they really enjoy what ... more they are doing and that make the whole tour more enjoyable. Lunch was so tasty! I am very scared of fish so I was way outside my comfort zone but they were patient and not pushy for me to get in the water and swim around. I fully recommend this tour to anyone looking to scuba.

Snorkel tour!
Rene ans Raheem were incredible guides! We had such an incredible time in our tour. We anticipated to just stop at each location and swim around but our guides were so informative on each species and habitat! We learned so much about the fish and corals in the area and that made the experience so much fun! Thank you so much!

Excellent time
Had a great time. Booked the full day excursion to see 7 stops and we hit all seven. We didnt see the manatees on the way out, but we stopped on the way back and were able to see a manatee. Kyle and Charles were great guides , hosts, and entertainers ensuring we had a safe and fun snorkel session. Kyle was a great guide during each stop and Charles was a great pilot of the boat, even diving in and ... more preparing a fresh conch ceviche for the crew. Had a great time.

Definitely Recommend This Tour
We did an all day snorkeling trip exploring 7 breathtaking places along the beautiful Barrier Reef. My boyfriend & I had such a wonderful time! We go to see & swim with the sharks, turtles, and stingrays! Rene and Adiva were super nice & very knowledgeable! They served us homemade lunch & sliced up fresh fruits. Dam the stew chicken with rice was so tasty! In addition, Rene caught a few conchs right ... more from the water & made us fresh conch cevich! WoW! We also got to see the manatees, the mama and baby! It was definitely one of our most memorable experiences in Belize! I definitely recommend this tour!!

10/10 Recommend!
Rene and Adiva were amazing! My friend and I went on the full day Hol Chan tour and had the best time. Rene and Adiva were extremely friendly while being completely professional. While we were on the water there was a thunderstorm and I was freezing (CA girl) from the rain. Rene quickly came to the rescue and even gave me his own shirt to keep me warm. Even during the storm I felt completely safe ... more the entire time. These two work great together and inspire confidence at all times. I would highly recommend!

Above and beyond
From getting us all geared up to the end of the day with fresh ceviche this was such a memorable trip. Kyle and Charles were fun and informative throughout the day and took us to all the places as advertised. My travel companion is not the strongest swimmer, but Kyle helped her along, so she didn't miss out on a single thing! These guys are real pros and go out of their way to make it a fun relaxed ... more day for everyone no matter your skill level. Truly a BUCKET LIST Day! you cannot go wrong booking with these guys!
