Diving the Great Blue Hole in Belize is a bucket list item for many SCUBA divers. However once many divers have been there they want to go back to Lighthouse Atoll and Half-moon Caye for more of the stunning reef dives.
The dives will include Half Moon Caye Wall. Along the walls that drop beyond 300 metres (1,000 ft.), you’ll see colorful Sea fans, Giant Barrel Sponges, Sea turtles, Eagle rays, eels, octopi, Reef sharks and Stingrays hiding in the sand flats. This site is one busy spot!
A Second dive might include The Cathedral, the Zoo, or Manta Wall.
After your dive, the crew will dock at Half Moon Caye; a picturesque Caribbean island to enjoy a nice Belizean style cuisine lunch and with time to explore the island a bit. Half Moon Caye is home to a large bird sanctuary with an observation deck that overlooks a Red-Footed Booby Colony. This historical national park is nothing short of paradise!
The third and final dive of the day, Long Caye Aquarium, is a beautiful destination where marine life is healthy and plentiful. You will absolutely feel like you are diving in an aquarium! The crystal blue waters is perfect to capture sightings of the many tropical fish swimming around you, Eagle rays, Sea turtles, Stingrays, and Nurse sharks. This is the perfect ending to a spectacular day of diving.
These three sensational diving sites are located on Lighthouse Atoll, 60 miles southeast of Ambergris Caye. This is a full day of diving and boating (two and a half hours one way) that starts with a very early wake-up call, but it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. most divers say Half Moon Caye and Long Caye Aquarium are the highlights of the day—and that’s what they talk about on the boat ride home!
The boat leaves the dock at 6:00 am (approximately a 3 hour ride to first location) and will return around 5:00 pm. Our prices are structured as: (price for the dive) + (price for gear if you need) + (12.5% tax) + Park fee. This is one trip you must sign up for!
