A Day of Snorkeling off the Beach on Ambergris Caye

I brought back our snorkel gear this time from the states, so yesterday Bill got all of our gear out and gave it a good cleaning.  We had not used it since we were in Belize in 2010.  We decided to just bike down the beach until we found a good place to get in and just snorkel right off the beach.  The water was so warm yesterday that it felt like bath water.  We saw black grouper, bone fish, horse eye jacks and a few other species I am not sure what they were.  I am going to have to study up on my kinds of fish.  Belize having over 400 species of fish, that could take a while.

We have snorkeled several times at Hol Chan and Shark Ray Alley, but there are so many other places in the Caye's to snorkel or dive as well.  I really want to go snorkel Mexico Rocks which is located about 4.5 nautical miles north of San Pedro and the Coral Gardens located near Caye Caulker.  Mexico Rocks is known for having shallow, crystal clear waters with an abundance of sea life to see.

The water close to shore was so warm.

It is just beautiful in this area.
