Tour FAQ

What to bring?

GoPro if you have one
Reef-friendly sun screen

Why Reef-friendly sun-screen? And what brands do you recommend?

To help preserve our coral that is still alive, we highly recommend you use reef-friendly sunscreen. Non-reef friendly sunscreen has a lot of chemicals (like Octinoxate & Oxybenzone) that are extremely harmful to the marine life. But not only are they harmful to marine life, these exact same chemicals are also harmful to the human body. So you are actually doing yourself a favor by using reef-friendly sunscreen!

A few brands we, in Belize, recommend are:
-Kokua Sun Care
-Sun Bum Original Sunscreen Lotion – Vegan and Reef Friendly (Octinoxate & Oxybenzone Free)
-Babo Botanicals Clear Zinc Sunscreen
-Blue Lizard Sport Mineral-Based Sunscreen – No Oxybenzone, No Octinoxate
