East of Belize City on the northwest tip of Turneffe Atoll, the snorkeling at Redezvous Cut offers a remote dive with healthy coral formations. There is plentiful marine life to observe.
The Turneffe Atoll snorkeling is located 25 miles southeast of Belize City. Unless you are staying at Turneffe Atoll, you'll need a boat charter to reach it. There are a few dive charters regularly heading out to Turneffe Atoll. At best, most operate once a week, depending upon weather and the minimum required number of reservations. You'll want to check with each company to verify that they are actually going to snorkeling sites and not wall scuba dive sites. If time permits, you may want to consider Turneffe Atoll as a good central base for also exploring other atolls in the region.
To reach the snorkeling in Belize by air, fly into Belize City International Airport (BZE) which is located west of Belize City. Since there are few hotels near the airport and the airport is pretty far from the sketchy Belize City, you will want to arrive as early in the day as possible to meet your connection. There are two small inter-island airlines that serve many other destinations off-shore of Belize. Note, even if you reserve a specific inter-island flight at a specific time, only after you check-in with the inter-island carrier are you really assigned to an actual flight at an actual time. While there is a ferry service from downtown Belize City to some islands, there are only informal taxis (in personally owned vehicles) from the airport along slow roads thru run-down neighborhoods to the ferry dock, which is located in a very sketchy area. Hence, the ferry service does not tend to be a very popular option with tourists. When you are departing from Belize, the departure tax is included in the airline ticket, but make sure to verify.
Overall, Redezvous Cut is the 36th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 44 snorkeling dives in Belize. Several of the better snorkeling spots are nearby Redezvous Cut including Blackbird Caye, Hollywood and Blue Creek.
