Hol Chan Marine Reserve and Shark Ray Alley is approximately 4 miles South of San Pedro on Ambergris Caye. It’s by far the most popular day trip from San Pedro, perfect for snorkeling or diving.
The appeal stems from the large amount of fish life found with the Hol Chan "cut," followed by the excitement and novelty of swimming with large groups of nurse sharks and stingrays! Declared the first marine park in the entire country of Belize, this area has been zoned as a protected area. Due to this, what was once a depleted fishing area has now been allowed to re-generate, producing to divers and snorkelers alike quite a colorful and varied fish spectacle!
