Lighthouse Atoll Dive Tour Locations

The Great Blue Hole Scuba Diving

Experienced divers can venture to the limits of recreational scuba diving to see Costeau’s giant stalactites at 40 meters (130 ft.). This profile is for experienced divers only—divers with 25 or more dives. For those not qualified for this depth – or for those who simply want a longer dive profile — Belize Diving Services offers a second dive profile at a depth of 24 meters (80 ft.). On this dive, you will not swim through the stalactites, however, you will experience the drop-off and likely see some sharks.

Great Blue Hole Diving for All Experience Levels


Diving the Great Blue Hole in Belize is a bucket list item for many scuba divers. At Belize Diving Services, the Great Blue Hole diving is the first destination of the day. This remarkable sinkhole measures over 300 meters (984 ft.) across and 125 meters (400 ft.) deep. The Great Blue Hole Diving tours provide an opportunity to explore the Belize National Monument and UNESCO World Heritage sites.


Half Moon Caye Wall

After you experience Great Blue Hole diving, it’s a 25-minute boat ride to Half Moon Caye Wall where you’ll embark on the second dive of the day. Along walls that drop beyond 300 meters (1,000 ft.), you’ll gaze upon colorful sea fans, giant barrel sponges, turtles, eagle rays, eels, octopi, reef sharks and sting rays hiding in the sand flats. Half Moon Caye is a picturesque Caribbean island with a bird sanctuary observation deck that overlooks a Red-Footed Booby Colony. We have lunch on the Caye and explore the island a bit before continuing our tour.

Long Caye Aquarium

The third and final dive of the day brings you to Long Caye Aquarium — a beautiful destination where marine life is healthy and plentiful – making it a perfect site to wrap up a full-day of diving.

The Best Diving Tour in Lighthouse Atoll

These three sensational diving sites are located on Lighthouse Atoll, 50 miles southeast of Caye Caulker. This is a full-day of diving and boating (two hours one way) that starts with a very early wake-up call, but it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Great Blue Hole diving is a must-see destination and a bucket-list check-off item; however, most divers say Half Moon Caye and Long Caye Aquarium are the highlights of the day—and that’s what they talk about on the boat ride home!
