With more than 80% of marine life being nocturnal, and the reserve already bursting with colorful creatures, Hol Chan Night Snorkeling proves to be nothing short of 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 this popular marine park, 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 jacks, snappers and groupers whooshing around for their evening snacks.
That’s why this Hol Chan Night Snorkeling tour is so amazing. If you are looking to night dive at Hol Chan, take a look at Hol Chan Night Dive Scuba Diving Tour.
