Great Blue Hole

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 22 votes

The Blue Hole is a sunken underwater cave of approximately one thousand feet wide and three hundred feet deep, located in the center of Lighthouse Reef. From out of the air you have spectacular views of this geological phenomenon. Theories of a meteorite that struck Lighthouse Reef millions of years ago and leaving this huge crater behind are not true. It was formed in one of our ice ages when the land was lowered enough to expose lighthouse reef. Sweet water created holes and cracks in the lime...

Half Moon Caye Wall

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.6, 7 votes

Half Moon Caye Wall is one of the most popular dive sites in Belize. Sitting just south of Half Moon Caye, diving here is often combined with a short lunch break and red-footed booby bird expedition on shore. Half Moon Caye Natural Monument is about forty acres large open to tourists all year long and famous for its booby colony, frigate birds and many iguanas. There is a short trail that ends at one of the lookouts above the tree line from where you can see the thousands of nests. Most tourist ...

Shark-Ray Alley

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 4.2, 5 votes

Shark Ray Alley is one of the new dive sites of Ambergris Caye, recently connected as zone 4 to the Hol Chan Marine Reserve. It is an area that was used by fishermen to clean their catch of the day. All the leftovers and inner body parts landed in the water which attracted many southern stingrays and nurse sharks. Today, black shapes will appear in the water as soon as you arrive by boat. The area is used for snorkelers and divers being entertained by dive masters while they are feeding the rays...

Hol Chan Cut

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 2 votes

A shallow dive, the Hol Chan Cut is abound with life. Expect to see large Tarpon and maybe even a couple of fiesty Green Sea Turtles lingering in the sandy area of the cut. From the boat mooring, you will enter the water and descend - quite slowly - down to about 30 foot (max depth). From that depth you will circle the cut on one side then come back on the other. You can bet on seeing a large school of fish hanging about on the right wall. ...

Dangriga

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 2 votes

Most visitors to Belize don't even know the town Dangriga seventy miles south of Belize City, while it is a starting point to some of the best diving Belize has to offer. Dangriga is a small coastal town of mainly Garifuna people of African and American-Indian ancestry. It is famous for their unique arts, gift items and Punta-rock live bands playing in local bars. November 19th or Garifuna Settlement Day, is a great day to be here as hundreds of Garifuna people settled here back in 1823 comi...

Today there are luxury resorts at the cayes Southwest, Northeast and Long Caye while Middle Caye and North Caye are uninhabited.

Shark Point

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 1 votes

Located at the eastern end of the windward northern reefs, Shark Point is one of the more remote dive sites on Glover's. Heavy seas generally pound this exposed stretch of reef, making it a difficult site. Distance and weather play a major role in determining if you can dive. The nearest resort equipped with day boats is nearly nine miles away from Shark Point. Even if divers are willing to make the hour-long trip to get there, prolonged periods of excessive boat roll can make for an unsettl...

Harrier Wreck

 
 
 
 
 
Rated 5.0, 1 votes

When scuba divers read about diving at a dive site called Harrier Wreck, most think they are diving on a type of aircraft used by the RAF called Harrier Planes. But this wreck is of a boat which is used as a training bombing target by the RAF years and years ago. Nowadays, the wreck is split in two hence its other names Broken in Two Wreck and Two Halves Wreck. It is also partly submerged and serves as a beakon for locating the Blue Hole. For divers it is very shallow and the nearby reef might b...
