Hi all,

Sailing on Explorer of the Seas in March. After hearing about the tendering nightmares in Belize, we were thinking of doing the barrier reef snorkel and beach break that departs on a catamaran directly from the ship. Is this a good idea?

Can't speak for RCCL but our Carnival cruise to Belize had the snorkel tour to Goff's Cay leave direct from the ship before the regular tender service into town started.

Its not a BAD idea... If you depart directly from the ship (which all of the diving/snorkling excursions seems to do) it saves the time involved on going all the way into port on the tender and all the way back out to the reef. (the ship anchors a couple miles out I think.. it was a long tender ride)

HBennett, which company did you use. only ones i have found you have to at least go into dock on tender (one brings you directly back to the boat). thanks

Hi cruisers !
Sailing RCCL - Explorer - 4/8/07; can't wait !
Considering Barrier Reef Snorkel at Turneffe Atoll & Beach Break excursion - any comments or input would be welcome. Appears tendering is slow? Thanks

Pete

manhattenup, I don't remember the company but is the one listed as a tour on Carnival's website. It is called Goff's Cay Snorkeling.
