Turneffe Island Atoll Dive Site

Belize Scuba Diving Sites: Placencia Diving & Hopkins Diving

Due east of Belize City and minutes beyond the Barrier Reef lies the Turneffe Islands Atoll.  The largest of the three atolls located off the coast of Belize, Turneffe is made up of more than 200 islands.

 

It is 32 miles long and at its widest point is nearly 10 miles wide.  Due to its proximity to the mainland, one would think that the diving there would be more popular, but in fact, Turneffe is the "forgotten atoll".  For this very reason, Turneffe has some of the most pristine diving in Belize.

 

Some of the best diving here is found at the southern end close by, and including, the famous Elbow. Because of the converging currents, big schools of horse eye and cervale jacks are found here.

 

Sometimes king fish and tuna will also show up. Eagle rays frequent the area and mantas have been sighted. Because of all this action, spotting reef or hammerhead sharks is a distinct possibility. Turneffe Atoll is the only place in the world where you can observe the rare white-spotted toad fish to add to your collection of sightings or photographs.

 

Dive sites include Turneffe Elbow South, Black Beauty, Myrtle Turtle, Front Porch, and Calabash, the choice of sites depending on the weather conditions.
