The water is so clear that there are at least 5 shades of blue at different depths. Then the island is completely surrounded by a coral reef and variety pack of colorful fish.
The reef is a good depth to enjoy with just snorkel gear. Everything around the island is either just below eye level, or free dive-able.
It’s hard to choose if the view waS better from above or below the surface. The snorkeling was top 3 that I have ever done, but just look views from the sand!
From shore, we saw a lemon shark just as we were gearing up, and then he can back around lunchtime as our cooks through some scraps in the water.
During our afternoon snorkel with got a chance to swim with several rays, nurse sharks, and a massive lager head turtle, sadly the turtle did not want his picture taken and was extremely fast for a turtle!
A special thanks to Splash Dive Center in Placencia Belize for having us for an amazing day!
