Why We Love It
Belize is a wall diver's paradise, boasting colorful gorgonians and sea sponges, with the occasional turtle, eagle ray, and reef shark passing by. After a short transfer from Belize City International Airport, the liveaboard will take you to Belize's most famous dive sites: Turneffe Atoll, Half Moon Caye, and the mystical Blue Hole. This is a great way to access Belize's best sites without long transfers or boat rides. Accessible to all levels of divers, it's the perfect trip to gain a lot of diving experience, with up to 27 dives scheduled!
The liveaboard supports the Turneffe Atoll Marine Reserve (TOSA) and the Lighthouse Reef (Blue Hole and Half Moon Caye) through the Audubon Society in Belize. They also participate in cleanups and beach cleanups.
Who Is It For?
All levels of divers. Advanced divers will be able to deep dive at the Blue Hole and on Turneffe Atoll's sites. Non-divers can do their Open Water course on board if they wish.
