If you are looking for a polished resort, this is not the place for you. The island is only about an acre, and there is only a changing room, a outhouse, and a cooking pavilion. My daughter and I had a great time on the completely natural beach and the shallow ocean. The staff could not have been nicer, and... More

This was our second visit to Goff's Caye and once again it did not disappoint. Amazing to see how the island changed in just 1 year. We did this excursion on our cruise to Belize and besides to tender and boat ride to and from the island, the day was fantastic on Goff's.

Thinking of Belize as a world-class diving and snorkeling location I selected "Exotic Eco Tours" for a boat trip to tiny Goff`s Caye, hoping for a special snorkeling experience. I had asked staff before booking what I could expect: tutles, rays, including Mantas, etc. was his response. Well, that sounded like something worth spending 50$ for. I have been diving... More

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
