Home to the second longest barrier in the world and three of the northern hemisphere's four atolls, Belize makes a fabulous liveaboard destination.
Liveaboard itineraries focus on the Lighthouse and Turneffe atolls. The world-famous Blue Hole forms part of Lighthouse Reef, the northernmost of the three atolls. Originally a cathedral-like cave, the roof fell in 10,000 years ago, leaving a perfectly circular hole. At 40 metres one can see stalagmites and stalactites and swim through the maze of quartz and limestone while marine-life swims below.
Turneffe atoll is the largest of the three atolls and the closest to Belize’s coastline. It has large mangrove areas providing a haven for juvenile marine life and is famed for excellent wall diving and sea gardens. Divers can expect to see eagle rays, turtles, large snapper, jacks on the atolls healthy reefs.
