    Single Dive at Belize Barrier Reef

    1 tank dive trip at Belize Barrier Reef. You don’t have to go far from the island to experience the brilliant underwater beauty of the Caribbean. You just have to know where to go. Only a short 5-10 minute cruise from the Ambergris Divers dock takes you to multiple dive sites just beyond the reef crest, sites closely held by our local experts. On this tour, you will experience depths of 60-80 feet, starting off a 40 foot gorgonian plain into a vivid terrain of fleshy boulder and pillar coral formations, amongst waving sea fans, sea rods and impressive sponges. Glide over the spur and groove canyon formations while watching busily scurrying fish and trying to spot the more elusive marine species. Hanging around typically in these areas are large groupers, nurse sharks, gliding eagle rays and turtles. The Ambergris Divers team will share with you local secrets to the most stimulating and memorable dive spots around the island. Perfect for beginners. Schedule: Morning trips: 9am to 10:30am or 11am to 12:30pm; Afternoon trip: 2pm to 3:30pm or 4pm to 5:30pm (upon availability).

    Hol Chan Night Dive Scuba Diving Tour

    More than 80% of marine life in the Caribbean Sea is nocturnal, and this Night Dive Scuba Diving Tour of Hol Chan lets you see marine life as you’ve never seen it before. Due to Hol Chan Marine Reserve’s protected status, what was once a depleted fishing area has now been allowed to re-generate, providing an unparalleled diving/snorkeling experience for visitors and an important refuge for marine life along the northern section of the Belize Barrier Reef. Over 160 species of fish have been identified at Hol Chan, along with nearly 40 species of corals, 5 sponges, 8 algaes, 2 seagrasses, 3 marine mammals and 3 species of sea turtle. Because of all of the energetic habitation at the reserve, this trip promises to be an exciting one, with creatures coming in and out of their nocturnal activity, spawning and feeding, as well as the iridescent colors from the glow of your dive light. This tour is only allowed when the tide is good, so take advantage if you can. Schedule: Most evenings at 6pm (inq. on week's schedule). Reservations required
