Belize hosts 185 miles of Barrier Reef (the largest in the Western Hemisphere), three atolls, and the famous Blue Hole, largest such ocean sinkhole in the world and the only one visible from Outer Space.

Offshore Belize and the Cayes along with our British heritage is what gives the country its Caribbean element and makes it distinctly different from our Central American neighbors. The Caribbean boasts four oval atolls unique in the Western Hemisphere; three of these huge coral formations (Turneffe Island, Lighthouse Reef, and Glovers Reef) call Belize home. Lighthouse Reef and Turneffe are easily accessible to our guests who don't mind a little extra travel time. These are all day trips. You will be picked up at our dock. You will be provided with breakfast and lunch as well as drinking water and sodas on board and will be returned to our dock. The atolls & Lighthouse Reef in particular are truly pristine and very unique.

Lighthouse Reef is the home of the Great Blue Hole made famous by Jacque Cousteau. Measuring approximately 1,000 feet in diameter and over 450 feet deep, Belize's Great Blue Hole is best described as a dark blue circle in the middle of a turquoise sea. The Blue Hole contains a variety of incredible stalactites, some of which reach 35 feet in length. It is inhabited by gray, reef, silk, and bull sharks. The nearby wall dives at Half Moon Caye and Long Caye make for a memorable day of diving.

Northern Ambergris Caye Dive Sites

Palmeros Point
This is one of the most northern dive sites located at about 12 miles from town. Because of it's distance most dive shops don't do this dive, but we do. Because of our location we are 15 minutes from the site. The beautiful untouched reef starts at about 50 feet and then slopes of into steep cannons and drop down to a wall with over hangs that go down to 110 feet deep. Here we find a lot of Horse Eye Jacks and Nassau Groupers since the deep drop off and its overhangs give them very good habitual surroundings. This area provides a lot of beautiful reef creatures and fish that will take the photographer into scuba heaven. This is a beautiful drift dive.

These tunnels got their name because some people have chosen to get married under water right here. The dive starts out in a beautiful canyon that ends in a big cavern which has an opening in the roof that lets through a lot of light.
