Looking forward to visiting AC next week. During my last visit I noticed most dive operations seem to specialize in diving the reef closer to the AC. This time I am keen to dive some of the sites around Lighthouse Reef and perhaps Half Moon Caye. Other than on special "blue hole" trip, is that something dive operations on AC do? What about the ones on CC? (i.e. trips to Lighthouse, Half Moon or even Glover?) ...or is it simply too far?
Hi World Traveler
With the exception of the regular Blue Hole trip its just too far for the local operators to go each day, Lighthouse is 45 odd miles over open sea and takes 2 hours and a half each way so it is a specialized trip which the Blue Hole is the draw even thought the wall diving of Lighthouse reef is fantastic world class diving.
Your only option is to jump aboard the Blue Hole scheduled trip they will do Long Caye Wall (fantastic) and may also do Half Moon Caye Wall along with the Blue Hole. If you are unsure about diving the Blue Hole I wrote an article on diving the Blue Hole called Belize's Blue Hole Is It Really Worth Diving
you may find it interesting.
The other long shot is contact ecologic and see if they have something heading out that way.
Ambergris Caye has some great local diving but I dont think anyone would disagree the Atolls of Belize is the best diving in Belize.
