Description
The All-in-1 is a "best of tour" that includes the most requested by our guests - an Exclusive tour only with Catamaran Belize!
The semi-private option has the same itinerary as our regular All-in-1 group tour (minimum 8 and maximum 16 guests), but with the minimum of only 4 guests and the guarantee of no more than 8 guests on-board. This is something unique with us on the island, a great option to avoid crowds but yet share the fun with some other guests.

We start the tour with snorkeling at Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley. Hol Chan has the largest variety of species to be seen in the area and is often compared to an aquarium, while at Shark Ray Alley you get to experience a close encounter with nurse-sharks and stingrays. Watch from the boat or swim with them! Then we continue sailing to the neighbor island Caye Caulker, while serving our famous Belizean buffet lunch on-board. Traditional Belizean dishes like stewed chicken and rice and beans with our Captain’s secret recipe BBQ fish! On Caye Caulker, there is approx. 1 hour of free time to stroll around and explore the island, followed by a relaxed sunset cruise back to San Pedro. There is an amazing spot on the way between the islands where you can see the sunset over the water. See Ambergris Caye change into its nocturnal aspect and hopefully, also the first stars!

The schedule for the tour changes through the year depending on the sunset. Open bar featuring local rum drinks like rum punch and "panty rippers" is included all day.

Hol ChanHol Chan is Mayan for "little channel" and is a natural break in the reef, which has always been a very productive fishing area with abundant marine life. It is open to the sea beyond the reef, so allows marine creatures to travel from the outside of the reef to the inside and vice versa. It became the first marine reserve in the entire country of Belize back in 1987 and this have led to the species to re-generate and the corals of growing unharmed. This snorkeling area has the greatest variety of marine life and coral, compared to being an "underwater zoo" - you have the chance to see all kinds of corals, fishes and even sea turtles! Over 160 species of fish and forty types of coral have been recorded in the area.approx. 1 hour
Shark Ray AlleyThe story behind Shark Ray Alley is that in all times, due to its position close to the channel to go outside the protecting barrier reef for fishing, it was the point where the local fishermen came in with their catch and started cleaning it - throwing the head, etc into the water. This converted it a natural habit for the marine life such as nurse sharks and sting-rays that associate the sound of an engine to food. The water is shallow and transparent and you will see the nurse-sharks and sting-rays on the surface, meaning that even if you don't get in to the water you can enjoy it from the boat as well! The stop here normally doesn't exceed the 20 minutes, since the nurse-sharks and sting-rays eventually swim away.20-30 minutes
Belizean buffet
Caye CaulkerCaye Caulker is the island closest to Ambergris Caye, the locals call it their "sister island". This is just how you imagine an authentic Caribbean island to be and a nice contrast to the more developed Ambergris Caye. Caye Caulker was uninhabited until the middle of the nineteenth century, when a small number of the refugees fleeing civil war on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula ended up there, started planting coconuts and developed a profitable fishing industry. Since the 1960's tourism has slowly grown on the island, but it has still kept its quite laid-back atmosphere, with the motto "Go Slow". The island is about 5 miles long but the town is just about 1 mile long and 1/2 to 1 mile wide. The "road" around Caye Caulker is only made of sand and is lined with swaying palm trees, souvenir shops and local jewellery shops. A high-light to visit is the famous "Split" and the bar Lazy Lizard, the most popular place both for locals and visitors to hang out for a drink and a swim. The Split started off as a channel which was widened by Hurricane Hattie in 1961, but back then it was actually just about a foot or so deep. The islanders then dug by hand to widen the channel to allow small boats to pass through. Over the years tidal forces took over and created the 65 feet (aprox. 20 meters) channel that is now today's Split.approx. 1 hour
