Belize has some of the most spectacular and thrilling scuba diving in the world. Its reef is home to sharks, sea turtles, stingrays, eels, octopus and an endless assortment of beautiful fish. those daring enough to venture beneath the waves will get to truly experience the wonder and mystery 60 to 80 feet down. Imagine sharing this world with sharks and sea turtles that are curious enough to approach and interact with visitors. It is peaceful and almost silent among the coral. For almost an hour, these divers saw the creatures of the reef up close and looked into the eyes of animals that most people will only see in pictures.

Venturing into the deep is safe if done correctly, but it is not without risks. Divers need the proper training and supervision to avoid serious hazards such as the bends, nitrogen narcosis and lung injuries from ascending too quickly.

The allure of this magical place is strong and once divers get a glimpse of the beauty here, they are sure to return.
