It's no wonder Splash Dive Center has repeatedly won Belize's top tourism awards: its staff makes divers of all skill levels feel comfortable in the water. And its snorkel trip to Silk Caye Marine Reserve is one great way to get acquainted the diversity of Belize's ocean life. The underwater habitat enjoys special protection, so snorkelers should keep their eyes open for a variety of vivid tropical fish, colorful corals, lobsters, Loggerhead and Hawksbill turtles, and, if they're lucky, docile lemon and nurse sharks. Visibility is no problem thanks to the impossibly vivid blue-green water. The day-trip is punctuated by a genuine Belizean lunch, either prepared and served on the boat as a picnic, or grilled, barbecue-style, on land.
