OVERNIGHT SCUBA CAMPING

World famous, Adrenaline-rush Blue Hole. Breath-taking Lighthouse reef and Turneffe Islands.

We leave at 8:00 am so we’ll get to the Blue Hole way after all the other boats have left. We want you to experience the Hole in its pristine, clear form without any other divers in the way.

The surrounding Lighthouse Reef is the densest, richest coral reef in Belize. Corals are huge, colorful, and varied. Marine life is superb. Most people say that this reef is worth the trip alone. After lunch, we visit two well-known dive sites in the Southern part of Lighthouse Reef Atoll. We camp at beautiful Half Moon Caye, with the most amazing sunsets and starry nights. The next day, after a big, filling breakfast, we visit two untouched dive sites on the Northern Cayes of Lighthouse Reef Atoll. On our way back to Caye Caulker, after having lunch, we make our last dive in the Northern Turneffe Islands. We want to make this a great experience for you, with unbeatable diving and healthy yet exquisite meals.
