Amazing adventure on and in the water
, Aug 2022
Thanks for the great experience!! We had a wonderful trip with our kids in the age of 17, 14 and 11 years old. The guides were very nice and took all the time for check inn till the end. We have seen some amazing animals like manatees, stingrays, barracudas, turtles, nurse sharks and a lemon shark. The trip was well organised and the guides did their upmost best!! Thans again for the great experience Familie de Vos The Netherlands 31/07/2022
Shorten voyage
, Jul 2022
We were split into two groups and I was in the group of 5. It rained the whole tour but the captain made it fun and we saw a lot. The places we snokled was magnificent and Hol Chan Marine Reserve took my breath away. By lunch it’s was cold and the trip became unbearably cold and raining and the water was rough, the other passengers wanted to abort do the captain complied. We can not control Mother Nature.
Can't beat this tour
, Jul 2022
Renny and Ativa were wonderful leads and hosts. Renny was great in pointing out cool fish and sea life that I wouldn't have noticed. It was a long tour and we got SO much snorkeling in. Plus they emailed videos and pictures of the trip to each of us afterwards! Loved the snorkeling and would definitely go with them again.
Our Tour Guides were the best!
, Jun 2022
This was exactly what it was listed as. We saw harmless sharks, rays, manatee. They made sure everyone on the tour saw the animals. We got to dive and pick a conch. They made a conch ceviche and we all ate it. I would definitely do this again. They both swim like fish.
Awesome experience!
, Jun 2022
This is a great full day snorkel experience. You're fed well throughout the day and the guides are very knowledgeable with the marine life you see. I travelled solo and had an awesome experience with my group. Charles and Philip (our guides) were great and even acted as mechanics when the motor on our boat started to act up. I thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone going to Belize.

Pretty great
, May 2022
This tour has 7 stops which is way more than most snorkeling excursions in Belize. The tour guides did wonderfully at making sure everyone had a great time and saw all of the sea creatures! They take go pro pictures and videos my only disappointment was they didn’t really take any pictures of us snorkeling.
Great tour team
, Apr 2022
Hol Chan is a beautiful place with many sea turtles and fish. We saw rays and nurse sharks also. This company met us at the ferry dock. Our guides were Adyvah and Charles. They were both very friendly and extremely knowledgable. Adyvah was especially eco conscious and very committed to keeping the reef intact and preserving the wildlife. They are a good team. The lunch was good and we even had fresh conch ceviche. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to visit the reef.

Great experience with awesome crew. We totally enjoyed that. We could swim with lots of harmless sharks, rays and turtles as well as with many colorful fishes and corals. Unluckily we didn’t see a manatee but it just cannot workout everytime:)
Grown-Folks Spring Trip!
, Mar 2022
Definitely a trip for adults (think party boat with snorkeling) versus a family friendly outing! Salaam and Kyle were knowledgeable, responsible hosts for our full day trip. We stopped at multiple locations and had plenty of time to explore the areas. Tons of fun meeting our fellow mates ranging from Scotland to Canada. Once we had lunch and being soaked by a sudden downpour, the rum punch got to working and so did the Caribbean coarse humor! Again, I didn’t mind at all but others looked a tad uncomfortable. Belize me…enjoy your vacay and go with it!
Triple A experience
, Mar 2022
From the moment we arrived at the office all of the staff were amazing, got measured for flippers and mask then got on board and made our way. Our guides Ren and Diva (apologies if I've misspelt that!) made the whole trip a blast with a wealth of knowledge and humour. Saw so much sea life at each stop, our favourite moment was shark alley. Absolutely memorable experience and highly reccomended. To top it all off they sent through a drop box link full of photos and video all captured by Ren of our trip.

Non-stop fun!
, Feb 2022
The full day with Salt Life Eco Tours was non-stop fun. With two expert guides, we snorkeled a Conch shell site, swim with Nurse sharks, sea turtles and rays, explored the Belize Barrier Reef at stunning Hol Chan Marine Reserve, snorkeled a sunken barge, teased the Tarpon and hunted for sea horses. Lunch was served onboard and fresh Conch cerviche and rum punches finished the day. Well done!

A must do in Belize!
, Jan 2022
Our captain and awesome guide Charlie was funny and very knowledgeable, pointing out all the different types of fish. At the beginning of the tour, he listed out what we hoped to see (manatee, rays, nurse sharks, turtles, seahorses) and we got to see them all! Swimming with the manatee was a highlight for sure! The lunch they provided was great and we were amazed with their efforts to be eco-friendly.

Best Snorkel Tour in the Caribbean!!
, Dec 2021
A must-do tour in Belize - Salt Life Eco Tour will make sure your snorkeling trip is a special one! I've snorkeled in 7 different countries in the Caribbean, but this was the best experience so far! The vast marine life seen in the ocean is majestic - Eagle rays, sting rays, sea turtles, nursing sharks, and manatees!! The boat crew and captain will go out of their way to make your trip extra special as well - I ended up taking 2 snorkeling trips with them and loved every moment of it!
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
WOW 😄 we are honored to be held in such high regards. We are happy you did two tours with us and was able to experience our consistently great eco friendly experience. The wonders of the Belize Barrier reef speaks for itself but having a caring, funny and knowledgeable crew really makes a huge difference. Thank you again for taking the time to give us feedback.
Perfect bucket list tour!
, Dec 2021
The tour guides, Salam and John, were great! It was a long fun day, we even got to see two manatees! Can't recommend enough!

Thank you for choosing to go with us and taking the time to give us feedback.
Very enjoyable-just change the boat to one that has better stairs
, Jul 2021
Must do if you are in Caye Caulker! We were giving the option to wear life jackets, which is much easier and allows you enjoy the fish, and snorkeling equipment. We were also given lunch: a much dryer stewed chicken, Chinese food like rice and rum punch. Our tour guides Salam and Art were very helpful, patient and knowledgeable about the area and fish. We made MANY stops and saw all different varieties/colors of fish, we saw nurse sharks, manatees, sting rays and turtles. We also made a stop in an underwater shipwreck and a hotel by the end of Caye Caulker that had sting rays and mini sea horse sanctuary. My only recommendation would be to use a boat that had better stairs. We all come out with leg injuries when trying to climb up from the water to the boat.

Best snorkel trip EVER!
, Jun 2021
I have snorkeled all over (Hawaii, Cozumel, Cancun, USVI, Aruba) and hands down, this was the best snorkel trip ever! Saw a manatee, tons of coral, fish, rays, & nurse sharks. Our guide, Salam, was incredible w his narration and putting us in the best spots. Do this trip!!!
