Which is better the Sharks and Ray snorkeling or the STarfish island snorkel

 I'm hearing that the snorkeling on Starfish is only in the swimming area.  Not much to see.  Probably decent for beginning snorkelers or young children as waters are calmer.   But Sharks and Rays is in the ocean and it's a great time.

Any updates to this topic?  I'm on the Carnival Legend in March with my husband and 18 year old daughter.  She doesn't really snorkel and would prefer more beach time.

Starfish island has neither good snorkeling,  nor good beaches. Few fish, hard, coarse, man made beach and  unpleasant odors from the "buffet" and restrooms.

We have been to both Starfish Island (back when it was called Bannister Island) and there really wasn't much snorkeling there at all...just starfish. I've heard that this tour takes you somewhere to snorkel? But I can't confirm that now since we haven't been in quite some time.


I have been to Goffs Caye and also Rendezvous. They have some amazing snorkeling at both. Both islands are very small but very pretty.


We have also done the Shark and Rays as well and it was a unique experience.

Sharks and Rays was one of the best experiences of my life.  Also we spent some time in Caulker before returning to Belize City.  Both are great!!  Don't miss this one.
