Snorkeling & Diving in Belize

Snorkeling & Diving in Belize

Explore the underwater wonders of Belize and the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. Swimming with large nurse sharks up close was an exhilarating experience. Next time I hope to have an opportunity to swim among Whale Sharks, which can be found in the waters off Placencia typically around the Full Moon in April or May.

Belize is also home to The Great Blue Hole, which is the world's largest sinkhole, measuring an incredible 300 meters (984 feet) across and roughly 125 meters (410 feet) deep. In fact, a team of scientists -- including Virgin billionaire Richard Branson -- has recently returned from a groundbreaking mission to the bottom of Belize's Great Blue Hole with exciting findings. There’s a whole documentary on it!

GETTING THERE: Ambergris Caye, Belize

GETTING THERE: Ambergris Caye, Belize

Your first impression of Ambergris Caye is likely to be from the air, because most visitors to the island fly into the Philip Goldson International Airport at Ladyville just north of Belize City and then change to a local commuter for the 20-minute hop to San Pedro. On a clear day, you get a great introduction to Belize's Caribbean Coast. As your plane goes low over the transparent water, you'll see mangrove- or sand-edged islands, coral heads, the sand and sea grass bottom, fishing boats and sometimes the blur of large fish.

Flights run nearly every hour and if there are any delays with your international flight, Tropic Air will ensure you get on the next flight. A typical round trip flight from Belize International to San Pedro is $158 USD and can be arranged through Well Xplored.
