Come find out why Belize scuba diving is among the best in the world. Home to the world’s 2nd largest barrier reef, Ambergris Caye is in the perfect location for easy access to some of the most spectacular and acclaimed dive sites.
From shallow sea-grass beds to complex coral formations, every inch of the Ambergris Caye’s aquatic eco-system is teeming with marine life. Depths range from as shallow as 10 ft. in the ever popular Shark Ray Alley to over 150 ft. in the mysterious Devil’s Canyon, where steep canyon walls envelop a profusion of some of the area’s most diverse species of coral and tropical fish. Colorful sponges, branching anemones, staghorn and elhorn coral formations, the majestic spotted eagle ray, several species of snapper, grouper, angelfish, and a multitude of other marine creatures provide a memorable spectacle to all who traverse these vibrant waters.
The Tour Desk at Captain Morgan’s Retreat can arrange dive excursions to suit any budget. Dive conditions are generally well suited to beginners with a comfortable average water temperature of 79°F and relatively stable tide conditions. The exceptionally crystal waters boast visibility of up to 165 ft. in some areas. Home to the country’s only hyperbaric chamber, Ambergris Caye has the best emergency response service in relation to diving mishaps.
Undoubtedly, with its thriving underwater gardens, unique layout of the sub-aquatic terrain, stable offshore currents, and state-of-the-art facilities, it is no surprise that Ambergris Caye diving is ranked as the nation’s best!
