ReefCI have been operating in Southern Belize for over 10 years. Located on an idyllic 1 1/2 acre island, ReefCI offer dive trips with a difference! Our guests help us collect data to assist with our marine conservation initiatives. Our projects include general health of the coral reefs, commercial species, marine internship programs, 'conservation through the lens' photography trips, Whale sharks and our Lionfish project. Most of our guests are non scientist and they do not need any prior experience. Our trips are for people that want a great holiday but also want to put something back in... read more to the environment that they love! We take non divers, divers, people who want to learn to dive, single people (there is no single supplement), couples and families. Our guest average 12-14 dives per 5 day week. We mix conservation dives with fun dives and the diving is incredible, fantastic wall dives and in 10 years we have NEVER shared a dive site!
