Belize Snorkeling

Explore Some of the World’s Best Snorkel Sites!

An easy way to enjoy the underwater beauty that surrounds Blackbird is to go snorkeling.  All you need is a mask, snorkel, and fins. People of all ages and experience levels will take home wonderful memories about their time in the water with us. Turneffe offers some of the best snorkeling in the world. It is an easy way to enjoy many of the shallow reefs, allowing for easy access.

We provide two boat trips per day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, which are included in the Snorkel package. Snorkelers may also be interested in taking the one day excursion to the Blue Hole which is regularly scheduled on Tuesdays (weather permitting) This is a full day trip with a picnic lunch at Half Moon Caye Natural Monument where can you see nurse sharks and myriads of brightly-colored reef fish that highlight the reef. Swim out a little further and you might see turtles, spotted eagle rays, seashorses, squid, and moray eels. Please stop by the Dive Center for the following snorkel services:

  • Lessons
  • Guided snorkel trips
  • Equipment rental
  • Private snorkel guide and boat


Snorkeling may be the single most popular guest activity because the swimmer has unlimited access to the reef only a few dozen yards from the Blackbird pier. The shallow clear waters inside the reef provide an excellent environment for beginners. High underwater visibility and shallow lagoon provide stunning underwater panorama for the snorkeler to see snapper, angelfish, parrotfish, rays, and endless varieties of coral. So if you are looking for the best snorkel trips then search no further then Blackbird Caye Resort!
