I was on the NCL Spirit Dec, 07. We went on a tubing river tour. I'm tring to find the name of the exchursion operator. The guide/manager's name was Carlos Santos. If any one knows of this company please responed back.
Sbruno- I have been watching to see if anyone was going to respond to your question and it doesn't look like they will. Two years ago is a long time to expect a guide to stay with a tour company. I don't know which company Carlos may have worked for, but I know there are 2 or 3 tour operators in Belize that seem to do a majority of the tours 1) Reggie Tour (look him up on the internet) and 2) Xtreme Tours (they have a website as well.) There are several smaller tour guides but I only remember those 2. You can certainly google on Belize and tours and see what kind of information you get from that. Good luck...
tube tour fun but think you are missing the boat.been to belize 5 times and snorkling there is the best any where i have ever been and have traveled many places.only place can imagine might be better is barrier reef down under.
We will be in Belize in mid February and after taking a cruise in the Mediterranean and Not booking our excursions through the ship, who, how and where would you recommend snorkeling? would like to arrange not through Carnival.

We did our excursion through Royal, they picked us up at the ship and took us to a fantastic reef. As Jim said, Reggie and Xtreme Tours are two firms he remembers. Did you try to Google them? Or just Google Snorkel Excursions Belize and you should get quite a few hits. The snorkeling was really good, it would rank about 3 or 4 on my list, Champagne Reef in Dominica, Flamingo Bay in Grenada, and Bonaire would be my tops. Belize and Roatan would be neck and neck.
There is a company that has a "hut" on the cruise terminal tender pier down past the Royal Caribbean tender dock area. I know they offer beach/snorkeling to a private Island. We were going to take them but when we were there in September it was raining very heavily. They have a private island and then taek people out to the reef from there. For the life of me I can not remember their names, but if you take your swim gear with you, you can book with them on the dock.
There is also Coral Breeze Tours (google them) that offer various snorkeling tours. Most of the private companies do the cave tubing and Mayan ruin tours because they don't need a boat...
