Scuba Diving

Divers from all over the world come to Belize for a diving experience unlike anywhere else. We’re home to the largest barrier reef in the Northern Hemisphere and three of four coral atolls in the Western Hemisphere, with drop sites inside and outside of the reef. From masters to newly certified divers, there’s a dive site for everyone here in Belize.

The water at the reef is some of the best in the world. Crystal clear with visibility routinely extending hundreds of feet, you’ll always get the best view and diving experience. No matter what month you’re visiting, surround yourself with warm water and plenty of marine life to take in including corals, sharks, turtles and stingrays.

The Belize Barrier Reef is home to the Great Blue Hole–one of the greatest geological wonders of the world. Just 43 miles off the mainland, it is easily experienced on a day trip. A site for more experienced divers, a deep dive into the Great Blue Hole will unveil a whole new world full of rare fish and stalactites not found in other sites near the water’s surface.

The Great Blue Hole Is 406 Feet Deep

Apart from the famous Great Blue Hole, Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Ambergris Caye, and dozens of other sites off the coast of Belize are listed as some of the top destinations for divers in the world.
