Local Diving (1, 2 and 3-tank)
Local Scuba DivingThe spectacular Belize Barrier Reef offers scuba diving unrivaled anywhere else in the world. It runs for 185 miles parallel to the coastline, making it the largest reef in the Northern and Western Hemispheres. The reef is located less than a mile from the Ambergris Caye coastline. Water temperatures are fairly constant all year, staying between the high 70′s and low 80′s.
A lightweight dive “skin” or a 1/16-inch “shorty” wetsuit should be perfect for multiple dive days. The underwater visibility in Belize is up to 165 feet, allowing the diver to see all of the amazing marine life. Some of the picturesque creatures you’ll see include the large, friendly moray eels that are willing to be photographed. You will pass by many schools of blue tang, blue striped grunts, and silk snappers. Rays and nurse sharks are also a common sight while diving in Belize.
The Blue Tang has partnered with local dive shops and will help you arrange your diving. Visit our hotel front desk once you arrive and they will be happy to assist you. Join us for a 1, 2 or 3-tank dive and explore the Barrier Reef just off of Ambergris Caye.
