Atolls Activities and Tours

Diving


Atolls Diving
The atolls of Belize offer fantastic diving experiences. These are just a few of the memorable sites that you will encounter on your diving vacation to this region of Belize.

BLUE HOLE - The Blue Hole is Belize's most recognizable dive site and offers divers a unique and unforgettable diving experience. As you descend into an ancient cavern you'll encounter stalactite formations and reef sharks.

Most trips to the Blue Hole are full day excursions and also include dives at Half Moon Caye Wall and a stop-over at Half Moon Caye National Monument. The monument is a sanctuary for the Red-Footed Booby and Frigate birds.

TURNEFFE ELBOW - The Elbow is one of the best dive sites in the western Caribbean and offers the best in wall diving. Located on the southern tip of the Turneffe Atoll the site is swept with ocean currents which bring in large schools of grouper, jacks, permits, and snappers.

Swimming among pinnacles and sand chutes, you may encounter turtles, rays, and maybe even hammerhead sharks.

GAIL'S POINT - This wall dive features a sheer drop-off along the barrier reef of the Turneffe Atoll. You'll then venture out into the blue water where you'll meet resident eagle rays and then drift back over the plateau to look for the elusive White-spotted Toadfish, a native of the waters of Belize.

GLOVER'S REEF - At Glover's Reef you'll experience some of the best diving in the Caribbean. Breathtaking wall dives are common-place and feature 2000 foot drop-offs. Fantastic visibility of up to 200 feet and warm water teeming with an abundance of wildlife makes this site one you won't want to miss.

You'll find a wide variety of marine life in your Glover's Reef diving experiences. Fish such as grouper, queen trigger fish, and large parrot fish abound, and encounters with manta rays, dolphins, eagle rays, and sea turtles are frequent.

INSTRUCTION - Many of our dive partners in the atolls offer full open water certification courses. If you've never tried diving, you can also take a Resort or Discover Diving course to get a taste of the underwater world before making the investment in full certification. You'll be glad you did!

Fishing


Atolls Fly Fishing
Belize's atolls are known for incredible flats fishing as well as great offshore fishing - an angler's paradise! Spend a few days in the flats fly fishing for tarpon, permit, and bonefish. Once you've caught the grand slam, move on to trolling offshore for wahoo, grouper, barracuda, jacks, and mackerel.

Some resorts allow you to drop a line right off the dock into schools of bonefish and snapper. Others allow you to take a skiff out into the warm water and try your luck a little farther from shore. All offer fantastic fishing packages as well. Whatever your pleasure, you're sure to find it here.  Back to top...
