Shark Ray Alley tour
Had a good time here. We were exhausted from the snorkeling so we elected to stay in the boat rather than "swim with the sharks." Got come nice photos and there sure were plenty of sharks being fed by our guide Afrie! All in all a great experience.

Half-day Snorkel Tour a success
If it's your first time snorkeling in Belize, you should ask for the dyanmic duo Kayson (sorry if I spelt it wrong) and boat captain "Choco". They were great from the second you stepped foot on the boat. Kayson talked all the way and made sure all his guests were comfortable while also making sure we knew the rules/protocols. The tour was enjoyable - espcecially when the sharks were being fed right ... more next to us. We were even provided with soda and water which was a bonus to the already great tour. I would do it again :)

One of the best water tours I've ever been
Not a lie. Have been snorkeling or scuba diving in some of the best spots in the world and this tour stands out. The amount of sea creatures were so dense and colorful. Rays, nurse sharks, eels, turtles, dolphins, etc... The gear was pretty high quality And our tour guide Pepper was both very informative and fun at the same time. He added to the experience.

First time
The guides, were patient and entertained us. I thought I was a pretty good swimmer, but I realized, I was not. I've never gone snorkling, it would have been nice if we received some info by email, with the do's and don'ts. Like not putting sunscreen or lotion on your face. It was an amazing experience. I wish I could have taken underwater pictures. Maybe the company can offer that, water proof cameras, ... more or cases.

Marvelous Trip
A group of 8 of us attended and we had a fantastic time. The guides communicated well to prepare everyone before going into the water. The guides constantly checked to make sure we were OK as well. Learned a lot from the trip. Will definitely use them again.

Very Disappointed
At the first snorkel site there was a fairly strong current. We ended up having to do a huge amount of very strenuous swimming. The guide, Raul, swam way to fast and got far ahead and kept yelling for everyone to come to him. I'm a fairly good swimmer but found this to be not enjoyable. Another thing, my snorkel tube leaked in water every time I took a breath. They said that they didn't have any spare ... more tubes. I had to only keep my face in the water for short times. a friend swapped with me towards the end, so it wasn't a problem with the operator. Overall it was not enjoyable.

Amazing Snorkeling Experience!
Clifford, our guide, was incredible! Very knowledgeable, kind, patient, and great about communicating what to expect. He did such an awesome job pointing out cool sea life, answering questions, and even taking cameras down to take pictures. Such an awesome experience. I would highly recommend both Clifford and Tuff E Nuff snorkeling!

Unforgettable Snorkeling!!
This was probably the best snorkeling trip I have ever done. Being able to freely swim with 30+ sharks was truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. Our guide, Peppa, was excellent. I would do this again.

They picked us up and dropped us off right at the resort dock. Russell and Jesus were great guides and we got to see rays, sea turtles , sharks and even a well camouflaged octopus. Who can pass up swimming with nurse sharks? This experience is absolutely with having!

Great experience
I had a wonderful time snorkeling with Tuff E Nuff tours. This was my second time visiting Hol Chan and I had as much fun as I did the first time I went. We saw tons of fishes, corals and sharks! I also liked that we were picked up at the dock of our resort and dropped off there too.

Didn't believe it was me with the sharks
Everything went according to plan. The guides were helpful and informative. I have done lots of snorkeling in the Red Sea but this was my first time in the Caribbean. The sharks were beautiful and I couldn't believe how u threatened I felt. The rays were like curious and affectionate house pets. A great experience

Hasan amazing time on the tour. It’s great as it doesn’t go too long, good for people who are not strong swimmers, exciting and a little scary when swimming with sharks. Pepper, our tour guide was absolutely amazing. He knew so much information about the sea creatures that were spotted, Made me feel safe & had a great sense of humour. Highly recommend this tour
