Caye Caulker

Most famous for its proximity to the Belize Barrier Reef, Caye Caulker is a great base for divers wishing to explore a different section of the reef every day. Diving here is by boat, specifically small to mid-size speedboats. As the coral reefs are just a mile away, journeys can be quite short. Barely a handful of dive shops operate here. Each offers trips to the famous Blue Hole as well as the many other stunning sites on the barrier reef and slightly further afield atolls. The atolls can take around an hour to get to. The Blue Hole is popular and sometimes crowded. Note that the trip to get there is 2 hours.In addition, the area offers calm, clear conditions in which to learn or for beginner divers who wish to get more comfortable in the water. However, beginners should not attempt to dive the Blue Hole. The depth of that dive requires an advanced certification.For divers headed to the Blue Hole, a $40 per day park fee must be paid before diving. Divers who use a DIN regulator should bring an adapter with them.

Caye Caulker Sea Life

Declared a marine reserve in 1998, Caye Caulker is home to a wide variety of life under the sea. You can see manta and eagle rays and the lucky few might encounter a whale shark too. During the summer months, a few species of sea turtle arrive to lay their eggs on Caye Caulker’s sandy beaches. Expect grouper, jacks and barracuda to be intimidating the large variety of colourful reef inhabitants. Lobster are everywhere. You’ll also find crabs and a selection of shrimp too. Snapper schools and bat fish poke their faces in. While hammerhead sharks, lemon sharks and oceanic whitetip sharks are seen, but are quite rare.

How To Get There

To reach Caye Caulker, you’ll first need to get yourself to Belize City via bus or plane. Small planes and fast water taxis connect Belize City with the island of Caye Caulker. Golf carts and cycles are the only form of transport on the island, but most people walk as the island is so small.
