Belize Snorkeling Shark Ray Alley and Coral Gardens: Our Belize Snorkeling Shore Excursion takes you to the flourishing sub-aquatic haven of the increasingly popular Shark Ray Alley and Coral Gardens, hailed as one of the best “animal dives” by the Caribbean’s Skin Diver Magazine and is located just south of the famous Hol Chan Marine Reserve which itself is just 4 miles south east of Ambergris Caye. Originally a central gathering point for local fishermen to clean their daily catch, the area soon became a popular feeding ground for local sea creatures particularly the passive nurse sharks and several species of sting ray that inhabit the surrounding waters. This unique congregation of marine species soon became an alluring spectacle to both locals and foreign tourists. As the number of spectators increased, it was soon realized that the site would suit a more beneficial purpose as a conservation venue where tourists were permitted to interact with without threatening the marine-life. So Shark Ray Alley, adequately dubbed due to its vibrant profusion of sharks and stingrays, came into existence in the 1990s.
Despite their competitive frolicking, the animals have developed a reputable tolerance for divers and snorkelers who are able to safely intermingle with the sharks and rays in their shallow habitat, often managing to grasp a gentle stroke of a stingray underbelly in the process. Snorkelers can enjoy the intimate experience of feeding the rays by casually extending hand held scraps directly towards their expectant open mouths. Ultimately, Shark Ray Alley provides a highly invigorating, interactive, and rewarding experience for both visitors and the colorful array of marine life that inhabits the shallow azure waters while most importantly ensuring the vitality of these charming creatures for generations to come.
