The Best Scuba Diving in Belize

The Belize Barrier Reef is one of the most extensive barrier reefs in the world, which is why it’s such a remarkable destination for scuba diving in Belize. It’s found anywhere from 40 to 300 meters offshore and extends for nearly 200 miles along the eastern shore of Belize. Along the barrier reef, you’ll discover atolls, sand cays, mangrove forests, coastal lagoons, and estuaries.

These ecosystems work together to provide essential habitat for some of the world’s most threatened or endangered marine species. The habitat is so vital, in fact, that the reef is listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site. These protected habitats are teeming with underwater wildlife, and that’s why scuba diving in Belize is such a coveted activity.

One of the most famous places to go scuba diving in Belize is the Blue Hole Natural Monument. It’s the largest sea hole in the world, and it’s truly spectacular. Even so, there are plenty of other protected areas along the reef for unforgettable scuba diving in Belize. These include Bacalar Chico National Park and Marine Reserve, Half Moon Caye Natural Monument, South Water Caye Marine Reserve, Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve, Laughing Bird Caye National Park, and Sapodilla Cayes Marine Reserve.

If you’re interested in scuba diving in Belize, our Belize Resort is happy to arrange scuba diving tours for you. Our dive operators provide anywhere from one to three tank dives, and they also do night diving excursions for an even more unforgettable adventure underwater. Two of our top tours include the following:

  • The Blue Hole and Lighthouse Reef: This fantastic tour includes three scuba dives. First is the Blue Hole, where the wall drops an impressive 400 feet almost instantly, providing some great wall diving, caves, and more. The second is Half Moon Caye Wall, with abundant and colorful wildlife. After lunch at the Bobbie Bird Sanctuary, you’ll dive Lighthouse Reef, also known as the Aquarium.
  • Turneffe Atoll Dive: At the Turneffe Atoll, you’ll enjoy a remarkable variety of wildlife and coral formations. This dive trip also includes three different sites, all of which are wall dives chosen by the Captain and divemasters on the day of the trip.

All dives on the trip are between 50 – 80 feet and include complimentary pickup, a continental breakfast, lunch, snacks, and refreshments throughout the day. As remarkable as these two trips sound, we’re here to tell you it doesn’t matter where you go scuba diving in Belize. Everywhere you turn, you’ll be blown away by the diversity and beauty of the Belize barrier reef.
