A 45-minute boat ride takes you to the Island, plus another short boat ride to reach the Garden. This is the main place where snorkelling tours are organized and available if arriving with a cruise ship for a day stay, departing directly from the terminal. Caye Caulker Island is 5 miles in length and 1 mile in width, located right in front of the 185 miles Belize Barrier Reef! This is the second largest in the world after the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. The water is crystal clear and you’ll be able to see beautiful coral formations like elkhorn, staghorn and pencil coral flourishing in amongst yellow sponges and purple sea fans.
