HALF DAY DIVE – LOCAL REEF (CAYE CAULKER MARINE RESERVE)
Closest dive sites. Coral canyons. Shark and Ray Alley.
The Caye Caulker Marine Reserve is a newly protected area. Dive sites such as Raggedy Anne and Tunnels have been some of Frenchie’s favorites for 20 years.
We dive in between and across coral canyons to a maximum depth of 70ft/ 21m. We spend the surface interval at Caye Caulker’s Shark and Ray alley where we swim with Nurse Sharks and Southern Sting Rays.
Caye Caulker Marine Reserve is a favorite for our Night Dives. Depending upon conditions, we dive either along the channel at a maximum depth of 24ft/8m or along the coral canyons at a maximum depth of 70ft/21m.
