Shark Diving in Belize

Shark Diving in Belize

OK that’s sounds way scarier than it was… These sharks are blind and I am not even sure if they have teeth like the predators you see on “Shark Week”. The type of sharks we swam with were “Nurse” sharks (the name alone should strike fear into you). They kill their prey by “sucking” them to death according to Wikipedia. So they may not kill you but they could probably give you one hell of hickey! Either way it was still pretty cool to be within a few feet of a shark larger than me.

The sharks were not our only draw for the trip off of Caye Caulker, Belize. We went with Ragamuffin tours for the half day snorkeling tour which included a trip to “Shark-Ray Alley”. The alley was just as described full of Sting Rays and Sharks. Also seen on our trip were Stingrays, manta-rays, and a giant grouper. The tour companies seem to frequent the area and “chum”, so the smart fish head to the easy food. The grouper we saw look nearly domesticated as it swam with our tour leader. The grouper easily weighed several hundred pounds and dwarfed our guide. One of the most graceful things I have seen under water was the manta ray that glided past with just a flap of its massive rubbery wings.
