DIVING IN BELIZE

COME AND EXPLORE THE LIFE UNDER THE SEA

Belize has been rated as the best scuba and snorkeling destinations in the world thanks to the 190 miles of pristine barrier reef that extends from the northern tip of Ambergris Caye to the Sapodilla Cayes in southern Belize. The turquoise water, the colorful and stunning reefs, and over 400 species of fish are just a few of the things that enchant and amaze divers and snorkelers to explore the Belize Barrier Reef which is the largest reef in the Western Hemisphere.

 

The northern reef in Belize contains the most popular dive and snorkeling sites. Hol Chan Marine Reserve is one of the most popular snorkeling and diving destinations in the northern reef of Belize.  In the Maya language, the word hol chan means “little channel” and since the reserve is under protected status it is a natural habitat for an abundance of marine life. The reserve covers about five square miles and the channel is about 30 feet deep.  And since fishing is not permitted, the reserve is rich with sea life of every description and snorkelers and divers alike can expect to see a plethora of angelfish, blue stripped grunts, schoolmaster snappers and hundreds of other species.

 

The Shark and Ray Alley which is located within the Hol Chan Marine Reserve is another popular destination for snorkeling and diving, and is locally known as the aquarium as this is the spot where you can swim with the harmless nurse sharks and stingrays.

 

The southern reef in Belize is relatively unexplored and consists of two paramount marine parks: South Water Caye Marine Reserve and Laughbird Bird Caye National Park. It is interesting to note that as you move south along the barrier reef, the inner reef changes from grass beds and patch reefs to a compelling series of sinkholes, pinnacles and shelf atolls. And during the months of March, April, May and June, you can dive or snorkel with whale sharks at the Gladden Spit Marine Reserve in southern Belize.

 

Belize is also home to 3 spectacular atolls: Lighthouse Reef (home to the great Blue Hole), Turneffe Islands, and Glover’s Reef. Atolls are in essence, a group of islands and coral reefs that encircle a central lagoon with a total surface area equal to that of the entire barrier reef itself. These three atolls are also outstanding destinations for scuba diving and snorkeling because of excellent visibility, best walls, and potpourri of marine life.

 

J & M Belize Travel can book any snorkeling or scuba diving tour in Belize and we know that you will be astonished with the great profusion of color and marine life in our pristine barrier reef. And the turquoise water is always perfect. What more can you ask for?
