Snorkel & SCUBA

The Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System lies off the eastern coast of Belize. It is the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere and the second longest in the world. Most dives are drift dives and led by certified dive masters from Belize Underwater. Snorkelers and divers go out on the same boat. Snorkeling, PADI courses, and Discover SCUBA include equipment. Equipment may be rented for all other divers. Lunch is included on all full day excursions.

TURNEFFE ISLANDS
3 tank scuba dive
AND snorkeling

Turneffe Atoll is a three-tank dive excursion and despite a longer boat ride, the rewards are great. Drop in to the crystal clear Caribbean Sea and drift along the wall slowly with the current. Atop the coral crusted wall, look for thumb nail sized spotted drum fish pirouetting in protected crevices like ballerinas, and curious Moray eels prowling for lunch. Turn toward the abyss and watch for enormous groupers, passing sharks, tornado-like schools of jack, and rivers of creole wrasse. Swim over the edge to find spiny lobsters, tubular sponges, and enormous crabs. No matter the dive profile, divers will find colorful and cryptic creatures in every nook and cranny.

Time: Full Day
Skill Level: Novice

BLUE HOLE & LIGHTHOUSE REEF
3 Tank SCUBA Dive
and SNORKELing

Hop on the Belize Underwater boat to Lighthouse Reef. Well known as one of Jacques Cousteau’s top dive destinations, Great Blue Hole National Park is a sight to behold for snorkels and divers alike.

The Great Blue Hole is a very deep dive that reaches the limits of recreational SCUBA diving, and is suitable for intermediate and advanced divers with at least 25 logged dives. For Open Water certified divers eager to explore the blue hole, Belize Underwater offers the Deep Dive educational course that counts towards an Advanced Diver certification.

Snorkeling the Great Blue Hole is an equally exhilarating experience for non-divers, or divers that don’t meet the deep dive qualifications.

After exploring the Great Blue Hole, you visit two additional sites in the Half Moon Caye National Monument to complete this great diving and snorkeling adventure. 

Time: Full Day
Skill Level: Advanced

*For safety purposes, all divers joining Belize Underwater for a SCUBA dive at the Blue Hole must schedule a “check out dive” prior to the tour date.

GLOVER’S ATOLL
3 Tank SCUBA Dive
and SNORKELing

Glover’s Reef Atoll is a three-tank dive excursion well-worth the longer boat ride. Spectacular coral gardens, abundant megafauna, and the most dramatic wall diving can be found at Glover’s Reef Atoll. Designated as a Marine Reserve and UN World Heritage Site, Glover’s Reef offers unforgettable diving for both novice and experienced divers. Unlike other dive sites in Belize, visitors are treated to a feeling of unparalleled remoteness and are often the only divers at the site.

Drop in to the crystal clear Caribbean Sea and drift along the wall slowly with the current. Atop the coral crusted wall, look for thumb nail sized spotted drum fish pirouetting in protected crevices like ballerinas, and curious Moray eels prowling for lunch. Turn toward the abyss and watch for enormous groupers, passing sharks, tornado-like schools of jack, and rivers of creole wrasse. Swim over the edge to find spiny lobsters, tubular sponges, and enormous crabs. No matter the dive profile, divers will find colorful and cryptic creatures in every nook and cranny.
