“One of the four must-dive locations on this blue planet,” was how renowned oceanographer Jacques Cousteau once described Belize.
Scuba divers from around the world visit Belize for an experience you can’t get anywhere else. Belize is home to the largest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere and has three of only four coral atolls in the western hemisphere. When you visit, you’ll see the difference.
The Belize Barrier Reef spans 185 miles of the country’s coastline and features dive sites inside and outside the reef. There are countless dive locations for anyone from Dive Masters to beginners. The Blue Hole was originally a cave that formed about 10,000 years ago. It's visible from outer space, and is home to some of the largest midnight parrot fish in the world. The water is clear and underwater visibility routinely extends hundreds of feet, so you can easily view activity under the surface. Since temperatures are similar to that of bath water, the water is always mild. Amazing views and comfortable water temperatures, it’s all here waiting for you.
