Located five miles south of the town of San Pedro, Ambergris Caye in Belize, Shark and Ray Alley is Belize's answer to Grand Cayman's Stingray City. As its name implies, this is an area where nurse sharks and Southern string rays congregate to be fed and petted by the local divemasters. It's safe and exciting to experience, and makes for a truly memorable scuba dive or snorkel experience. In 1999, Shark and Ray Alley was incorporated into, and afforded the protection of, the Hol Chan Marine Reserve.
