If you have never done a Belize Night Diving Snorkeling tour before you have no idea of the magic that goes on at night. Many would say that about 80% of marine life are nocturnal. This being the case with the reef already bursting with colorful creatures, night snorkeling and dive at Hol Chan or Tuffy proves to be nothing short of being simply awesome.
Due to Hol Chan Marine Reserve’s protected status, what was once a depleted fishing area has now been allowed to re-generate, providing an unparalleled snorkeling experience for visitors and an important refuge for marine life along the northern section of the Belize Barrier Reef.
Over 160 species of fish have been identified at Hol Chan, along with nearly 40 species of corals, 5 sponges, 8 algaes, 2 seagrasses, 3 marine mammals and 3 species of sea turtle.
At the glow of your dive light, garden eels will peak among stingrays flapping their wings to cover themselves on the sandy bottom. Surrounded by little bioluminescent blinking, you will spot lobsters, turtles and groupers whooshing around for their evening snacks.
