The water is so clear that there are at least 5 shades of blue at the different depths. Then the island is completely surrounded by 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 way 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 lunch time 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!
