Silk Cayes Snorkeling
with the Turtles
The Silk Cayes are about an hour away from Placencia, almost on top oi the Barrier Reef. they are 3 small islands also known as the "Queen Cayes" around these islands you can find great snorkeling. So on a typical day out once we're there on the island we listen to a ranger briefing about he park system the do's and dont's and then your guide will step in and give you a short intro to snorkeling and the adventure at hand, and how you will proceed, then you will go for a guided snorkel for about an hour where your guide will assist and guide you around the reef systems while point various creatures of interest, then back ashore the island. Once on the island you will enjoy a freshly prepared meal (can be a packed lunch or a beach bar be cue, depends on the day) After lunch you can swim or relax on the beach until you are ready for the next snorkel adventure. when you are ready we will load up and take the boat over to a nearby patch reef. Here you will enter the water from the boat the guide takes you along the patch reef, as you go along you will eventually end up at what we call "Turtle Alley" here you will have a 90% chance of a close encounter with huge Loggerhead turtles, Southern and/or Rough Tail Stingrays as well as Nurse Sharks and Eagle Rays. Don,t worry they are all Harmless, unless you provoke them so keep your hands to yourselves and enjoy the encounter once that is done with, we load up on the boat and head back to Placencia, all in a great day of fun.
Other snorkel charters available from placencia to Laughing Bird Caye National Park, Pompion Caye, South Water Caye as well as half days at Lark Cayes or Bugle Cayes
Snorkeling always makes for a fun day with the family or that special someone
Lobster Hunting and Island R&R
Our family owned island has nothing on it, just an empty paradise, live the life of a lobster fisherman for a few hours as we snorkel along and hunt lobsters and your guides catch them. along the way if we find a conch we pick it up or a good eating fish we spear it for the grill, once the snorkel/hunt is done we relax on the beach or in the water as the morning's catch is prepped and grilled. Then we enjoy a seafood buffet with our catch. After lunch we can either relax for the rest of the day or we snorkel some more, depends on how you feel, Rum Punch is included but you have to order it before the trip starts.
Keep in mind lobsters and conch is seasonal so our catch is dependent on the season.
Lobster season is closed February 14th to June 15th
Conch season is closed July 1st to October 1st
