Shallow waters. Deep discovery.

Lighthouse Reef

The farthest away of our offshore reefs, Lighthouse Reef offers a great look at coral and sea life in a relatively shallow area. There are many different reefs within Lighthouse Atoll that are also great for exploring. It is another marine lagoon, bounded by reef and sand islands, and a nesting site of the rare Red-Footed Booby, located on Half Moon Caye. An observation tower and picnic facilities make this an ideal stop between dives.

Dive boats leave regularly from San Pedro. Be sure to take one. You won’t be disappointed.
