Outer Cayes And Atolls Of Belize

With over 400 islands, the outer cayes and atolls of Belize are known around the world for their biodiverse coral reef and the Blue Hole. These offshore islands offer a huge variety of dive sites and environments from coral reefs to shallow caves. The water is warm and visibility is generally excellent. Some areas feature heavy currents but this can be avoided by moving to the protected side of the islands, making the cayes and atolls a great dive location for beginners and advanced divers alike. Most diving is completed by mid-size dive boat on these Caribbean islands although some of the more shallow dives can be accessed through shore diving from the outer atolls. To visit the most dive sites during your visit, consider booking a liveaboard for your diving adventure.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.
