Longer "full-day" snorkeling tours are offered by numerous local businesses, for approximately $130Bz.  They usually leave around 10AM and return around 4:30PM.  Stops include the Coral Garden, Shark and Ray Alley, and Hol Chan Marine Reserve.  Be sure to check whether your tour guide will include lunch, since some only include snacks.  Some of them include lunch, snacks, and a Rum Punch "happy hour" on the way back.  With all operators, check to make sure they have equipment that is in good shape.

The creation of '''Swallow Caye Wildlife Sanctuary''' - a manatee reserve near Belize City is due to the efforts of a Caye Caulker local named Chocolate.  Be warned that you don't get to swim with the manatees in the sanctuary and some days may be more difficult to see them.  Most manatee tours include one or two snorkeling stops.  Manatees can be seen all year long, and in the summer months can be seen near Hol Chan Marine Reserve as well as other local areas.  The younger ones are curious and will swim close to you, unlike the more mature manatees, which generally avoid people (for good reason).

*'''Carlos Tours''' is located next to Cafe Amore. An ''eco-friendly'' tour and quite respectful of the reef. The locals living on the island will say that his tours are one of the best. The big difference is definitely that he has a catamaran instead of  a tiny speed boat like all the other companies. Common stops are: Hol Chan Marine Reserve, San Pedro on Ambergris Caye for lunch (delicious fresh veggies and fruits, chicken rice and beans) Shark-Ray Alley, & Coral Gardens. The price is $140Bz (as of December 2018). As a bonus you get free rum punch on the way back to Caye.
