We visited Goff Caye as part of a 4 night power catamaran trip. We visited when the cruise ships were not in port. The food shack was closed but no big deal. Snorkeling was average at best but the day we visited was a bit rough. Sand is course. This Caye is exactly what I had pictured when thinking of... More

We booked a visit to Goff's Caye with Exotic Eco Tours and we had a wonderful day. The boat ride was a delightful 1/2 hour ride from the port. Once we arrived at this picture perfect island, we had time to look around a bit before our snorkeling trip began. The snorkeling was good, but not as good as another... More

Everyone was so friendly but I have to thank one of our guides Carlton! He was so helpful to a scaredy cat (me) who was afraid of jumping off the boat. He was patient and so helpful and stayed with me until I got comfortable being in the water. The water was so beautiful. The island is small and we... More

A great option when cruising into Belize! Avoided tendering; they pick you up at the ship and speed across the sea to a small island that is just beautiful! Snorkeling was exceptional and the food was well prepared. Highly recommend this day trip!

Reluctant to give thumbs up on this review because I want to keep this place to myself ! LOL. A fabulous not so hidden gem. Absolutely gorgeous. If you cant find an excursion on your cruise ship for this destination you can book it once you get to the pier. The benefit by booking on pier is that the time... More

We booked our excursion as soon as we stepped off the tender. We took the later excursion that left at noon. The boat ride to the island was about 40 minutes but well worth it. There was only one other group on the island when we got there but they left about an hour into our visit leaving our group... More

We visited Belize on a cruise in January 2017. We booked independently as Goff's Caye was not offered through the cruise line. We first had to tender(25 min) to the port. The boat ride to Goff's Caye was approximately 30 minutes (we went right past our ship on the way, too bad they don't allow pick up direct from the... More

Visited Goff's Caye on a shoerexcursioneer port excursion. The boat ride to the island was a very bumpy 45 minute ride on a crowded, cramped boat. Your price of the excursion basically gets you to the island and allows you to snorkel. They do offer rum punch on the island. You stand in line to get a small Dixie cup... More

We booked this eco beach & snorkel adventure as soon as we got into Belize city from our cruise ship. They brought us to this secluded Caye & we were the first here for the day. It was stunning beauty all around. The beach was a little hard to walk on at first because the ocean had brought in sharp... More
