The definition of an island is that it’s surrounded by water on all sides. When you’re looking at activities on Ambergris Caye, you may assume that all there is to do revolves around being on or in the water.

Water-Based Activities

You can enjoy a lot of different activities in the water while you’re on Ambergris Caye in Belize. You simply have to decide how wet you want to get and how much you want to see while you’re on the water.

Snorkeling and scuba diving are probably one of the most popular activities. Each will allow you to explore the marine life that lives below the surface. If you have your scuba certification, you can dive deep and really get a feel for what Belize has to offer in terms of tropical fish.

You may also want to enjoy the water from the surface. There are catamarans, kayaks and much more that can be rented all over the island. If you are staying at a resort, they may even rent them right there for your convenience. This way you can go out onto the water at your own pace and go where you want to go.

There are also many cruises that go out onto the water. You may find one for fishing, one for dinner or one just to do a little sightseeing. It’s all up to you. Depending on when in the year you go, there may be more or less cruises going out over the course of the week. You can ask your hotel or resort about the cruises and they can tell you about all the different ones throughout the island.

You may just want to sit out on the beach and work on your suntan, too. There are various umbrellas and such that you can rent as well so you’re not in the direct sun for the entire day. With grocery stores around the island you can make a day of the beach and pack a picnic.
