Most of the best diving along Ambergris Caye is 1/4 mile outside the reef. It wouldn't be worth the risk or effort to swim or take a kayak that far. Support the great dive shops here and be safe. It's hard to take O2 and rescue equipment with you on a kayak.
RN diver, We have no beach diving its all a boat trip to the reef.Were all jealous of those dive locations that advertise 'unlimited diving' because you can just jump of the end of the dock into a dive , but on Ambergris you just stick up in the turtle grass beds.
