BELIZE – SAN PEDRO: The Best Snorkeling Tour Of My Life with YOLO!

In BELIZE, LATIN AMERICA, USEFUL GUIDES by Clelia Mattana14 Comments


If you are planning to go to Belize, don’t miss my post (it will be ready in a few days)!

Hey! Thanks for stopping by 🙂 I am currently writing this post about the most incredible snorkeling experience ever in Belize, where I had the pleasure to meet up close giant turtles that instead of running away, were chasing me! I finally saw a massive amount of innocuous sharks,  countless manta rays and a sea so bright and turquoise that left me speechless.


I’m telling you, I have seen a lot during the past 5 years snorkeling my way around the world, and some places were absolutely stunning, but as far as daily boat trips are concerned, the Yolo one will surely remain unbeaten for so many reasons! 

Until I finish the post and tell you all about it,  you can already check out the amazing company that organizes it. It’ s called Island dream Tours,  based in San Pedro (yes, like Madonna’s song “La Isla Bonita”!) and – below- you can check out a few pictures, well actually they are just some screenshots I took of the footage taken with my GoPro.

I posted them on Facebook and my friends went crazy (obviously). I will also try to put together a video with the footage on a later stage. All I can say is that, this tour is the absolute best I’ve ever been and I highly recommended!

  1. Belize is known for their snorkeling and SCUBA for sure. Glad you got to make it out on a boat to do this. The best diving in touristy areas generally is off the shore, a little less accessible to casual tourism…and destruction. What city were you out of when you did this tour? Or did you go to one of the islands off of Belize City? Can’t Wait to hear more!

      Hey Lexi, yes I realized it as soon as is set foot in Belize… wow, my paradise as I’m all for Scuba and snorkeling! I arrived in San Pedro as at the time I was based in Chetumal so it was quite convenient to take the boat from there! I will try my best to complete this article asap, so much to do all by myself! auch 🙂 But for now, if someone wants to visit, I have already put a few links to help them! Cheers

  2. hi Clelia,
    its looks like paradise, definitely want to go there. Always my heart goes boom to dive in the blue. I am planning a Snorkeling Trip to Florida.

      Never snorkeled in Florida, but I’ve been to Miami and loved it! As for Belize? definitely super high on my top 3 countries to snorkel, a true paradise I highly recommend to anyone!

  3. First thoughts: I cannot believe how CLEAR that water is!! I didn’t know that there were such things as snorkeling tours, but I’m so interested! I also love that you shot this with your GoPro! I’ve been meaning to check it out! Can’t wait to see your final post about the trip! What does a dolphin even feel like?!

      Thanks Charlie! I know, the water in incredible in there and the snorkeling tours are great!! Actually, there were not dolphins but innocuous sharks! They are very slippery 🙂

  4. Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Other than this, great views, I will check out this tour as it looks awesome and can’t wait to read the whole article!

      Hey, I have checked it out and it’s probably only your issue. Try to use the incognito mode. Cheers!

  5. This looks amazing! I should be making the trip down to Belize at the end of the year! I can’t wait! I’m a big fan of snorkeling, and haven’t seen anything too crazy since the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Thanks Nitin! This is actually not even a glimpse of the real post, I decided to add it now with some pictures as it was truly amazing, but wait till you read the whole story! This tour is the reason I fell in love with Belize. And consider that I wasn’t even planning on a tour when I was thinking of things to do. My main goal was to fly over the blue hole and scuba diving in there. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to and I found that a snorkeling tour was a good idea. Boy, was I right! Best experience ever! 😀

  7. Great Read! it looks like you had enjoy a lot with giant turtles and sharks. View is amazing. Whenever you will post your video on next stage, will check definitely. Interesting post.

    Thanks for sharing!
