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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
