Snorkeling the Belize Barrier Reef | Belize in Social Media | Scoop.it

Nice blog post with lots of photos...

 

"...We started out with a 20 minute boat ride that brought us to Blue Ground Range (in Belize a range is a group of cayes/islands). These were basically mangrove out-croppings.

A Day To Remember! – Snorkeling In Belize is like swimming in an aquarium!

A Day To Remember! – Snorkeling In Belize is like swimming in an aquarium! | Belize in Social Media | Scoop.it

Short article about snorkeling out of San Pedro ... the first photo is a little suspect as that species of  butterfly fish is not found in Belize - I believe it is a Pacific species.  But the rest of the article is accurate.

 

"...Typical sightings include lobster, octopus, squid, nudibranches, swimming eels, Spanish dancers, toad fishes, frog fishes, sea slugs, blue tang, tarpon, barracuda, sharks, rays and lots of colourful reef fish, some of them sound asleep. Coral polyps open and under light you can see their true brilliant colors. Armed with a dive light, snorkelers can see Caribbean night life at its best!.."

A first time snorkeler discovers the wonderful underwater world of Belize.  

 

"...We saw tons of fish! Groupers were my favorite to see. They were giant and let us get fairly close. We also got to see snappers, jacks, HUGE corals, and even got to swim with a 3 legged green sea turtle! We then spotted a sting ray chillin in the sand beneath us and a few others in our tour got to see a mooray eel..."
