Placencia Snorkeling to Avoid Seasickness

I will be staying in Placencia in February and would like to take an easy snorkeling tour which minimizes the time spent on a boat. I tend to get seasick pretty easily and am ok if the boat is moving fast for 1/2 hour or less, and if we get dropped off on land and can snorkel from there. But if I am sitting on a boat for hours on end, bobbing up and down, I will get sick no matter what I take to try to prevent it.

Can anyone recommend any snorkel tours that will meet my needs? I know the reef is much closer from Ambergris but my husband is set on going to Placencia.

Thanks,
JoniC

robertsgrove.com best down there

easy snorkeling tours from there might check with them.

They even have private island if budget is very good

Cozy Corner Belize if budget not so good...

transdermscop.com works well for mal de mer for me...

The boat ride to the reef is about 35-40 min, depending on how big and fast the boat is. There are a few shops with bigger boats that'll get you there quicker and smoother. Snorkeling is walk in off the coral encrusted caye, so its shallow flat and not wavy and bouncy.

I snorkeled off of Laughing Bird Caye while I was there. Took a short boat ride (11 miles) from Placencia to the small island. You need to walk through some rocks & shells to get out into the water but it was great being able to hang out on land when I had had enough snorkeling. The tour is definitely offered from the Inn at Robert's Grove but not sure about where else.

Laughingbird is a national park and many offer this option, but not as close as 11 miles
