<p>Nurse Shark at Shark and Ray Alley, near Ambergris Caye, Belize and Cayo Espanto Island Resort</p>

Shark Ray Alley is one of the new dive sites of Ambergris Caye, recently connected as zone 4 to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. It is an area that was used by fishermen to clean their catch of the day. All the leftovers and inner body parts landed in the water which attracted many southern stingrays and nurse sharks. Today, black shapes will appear in the water as soon as you arrive by boat. The area is used for snorkelers and divers being entertained by dive masters while they are feeding the rays and sharks. The students sit knees down on the white sand and watch this unique attraction. Stingrays with a wing-span of up to four feet will circle around you as if they are performing and waiting for food. You can feed them by putting the squid on your hands and waiting for the rays to suck it off. In the meantime try to feel its smooth skin. A note would be appropriate; the animals seem nice and friendly but are considered to be wild. Don't tease the six foot long sharks and stay away from the stingray's tail as it might make them aggressive. Shark Ray Alley is often referred to as one of the best animal dives in the world.
