Visiting Belize City by cruise ship? The cruise lines will tell you that your only opportunity to experience Belize's natural wonders is through them. They'll warn you that booking an excursion with an independent tour operator will cause you to miss your ship. They'll try to scare you with tales of scam operations and rickety boats. Don't believe them.
If you want to see the true beauty of Belize, let a true Belizean show you. Our company owner, Ivar Marchand, has a well-earned reputation as one of Belize's leading guides. He's assembled a team of local professionals who know Belize like only a native Belizean can. If you want to sleepwalk through another port stop without any interaction with the local people, a ship-sponsored tour is for you. On the other hand, if you want an excursion to remember, Coral Breeze Tours is here to serve you.
Snorkeling in crystal-clear Caribbean waters. Cave tubing through magical limestone caverns. Strolling amid lush tropical rain forests. Ziplining like a bird amid the jungle canopy. Exploring ancient Mayan ruins. Gliding along one of the world's most spectacular coral reefs. Relaxing on tranquil sandy beaches. Sampling local cuisine in an open-air restaurant. Enjoying the hospitality of the friendliest people in the Caribbean. That's the Belize we're ready to share with you.
We provide a wide selection of comprehensive excursions in Belize to the same leading sites offered by the cruise ships. We can also take you to spots off the beaten path -- all while introducing you to Belize's true personality.

"Too many fish to mention, an eel, and beautiful coral."
From the online booking to the end of the excursion, I couldn't have been more pleased with everything. I was nervous with the information on how to find our tour group and guides, but my fears were instantly quelled as we exited the tender from our ship and he was standing exactly where the directions stated with a sign for Coral Breeze tours. Payments were made, names checked off, and excursion started.
We waited a few minutes and were fitted with fins, boarded the boat with twin Yamaha 200 outboard motors, issued a life vest, given a safety briefing and then were off moving quickly across the crystal blue waters. The 45 minute boat ride was the top of the list for my two girls!
They took us to a place along the reef that was not as crowded as some other areas (4 ships in port in Belize on this day) and our knowledgeable guide led us on an amazing 45 minute snorkel trip across the reef. The water was ridiculously clear and shimmering! We saw too many fish to mention, an eel, and beautiful coral. Next was the shark and sting ray adventure where we exited the boat and stood in chest deep water while 10-12 nurse sharks came to feed on the chum our captain had put in the water. Not soon behind were 15-20 sting rays that swam all around us, between our legs, under our feet, across our bodies. INCREDIBLE!! I have been to Grand Cayman twice and swam with the sting rays both times, this was better. Hands down, the top moments of my vacation.
We got back on the boat where there was water, fruit, and punch waiting. We took a quick ride back to Caye Caulker where we had our choice of food, drink, and a laid back vibe for about an hour. We left right on schedule for Belize City and were returned to the port with about 45 minutes to shop before standing in the line to board a tender back to the Dream.
I highly recommend this tour and Coral Breeze! Memories of a lifetime, top notch customer service, knowledgeable and friendly crew and guides, timely and efficient registration and safety and satisfaction. Thank you Coral Breeze!
