4.4
#4 of 6 in Nature in Belize Cayes
Discover flourishing coral life as you head beneath the water at Turneffe Reef, one of the largest and most biologically diverse reefs in Belize. Find schools of fish, sharks, large rays, turtles, and eels lurking around the coral. Several steep drop-offs and a high range of visibility make this one of the best dive spots in the local area. Appropriate for both novice and experienced divers, the reef features shallower dives suitable for beginners and snorkelling, as well as deeper dives with stronger currents for the more experienced.

  • This is about an 1.5 hours from San Pedro by boat. It was very nice and deep diving. Lots of lemon sharks. Beautiful. I greatly enjoyed these dives.  more »
