I am going on my first (W.Carribean) cruise in Feb. on the NCL Sun, solo. I do like to snorkel, and would like some input about excursions in Belize and Cozumel. We are also going to Costa Maya and Santo Tomas de Castilla. Although there are other GL in my group, I want to do ship excursions, since I am solo, and do not know the people in the group. Any suggestions for excursions for this first time cruiser, an active woman just turned 60?? Any other FOD going on this trip leaving 2/11 from Miami? Thanks for your help! Snorkelgal

Since the hurricans last summer, the snorkling in Belize should be better than in Cosumel.
The deep reefs are okay, but most of the shallow reefs in Cosumel were severly damaged by the hurricanes.

I've heard and read rave reviews of snorkling at Caye Caulker in Belize. The Hol Chan Marine Reserve, about 10 miles north of Caye Caulker, is one of the most popular snorkeling destinations. Hol Chan is a natural cut in the reef, about 25-30 feet deep and home for a wide variety of fishes and other marine life. Established in 1987, Hol Chan is the first reserve of its kind in Central America. Just to the south of Hol Chan is another popular dive site called Shark-Ray Alley. Shark-Ray Alley is a shallow cut in the reef where snorkelers are almost assured of encountering nurse sharks and southern stingrays. Often you'll spot dolphins along the way, especially when you head south to visit the manatees and swim off Goff's Caye.
