Great Lion Fish Hunting!

We dove this reef twice and our dive group of 5 bagged about 80 Lion Fish! We went with Sea Star and The Dive Bar cooked them up for us; Delicious!

This reef had some of the most beautiful purple fan coral that I have seen anywhere. There were not a ton of fish while we were their, but we were snorkeling off a boat and only got to stay there for about 30 -45 minutes. We also saw the most conks that I have ever seen in one spot.

We took a boat ride here with E-Z Boy Tours. The ride is choppy, but we got a chance to snorkel some different waters and avoid the crowds that some of the other places had. I would definitely do this tour again, though it can be hard to find someone willing to made the trip if you don't have a... More

There were some bigger animals: a free swimming green murray eel, a turtle and an almost tame nurse shark, as well as a remora that was very interested in our group. I went there from Caye... More

A day trip to the Turneffe Atoll is a must for any scuba diver who visits Belize. The wall dives are amazing and the sea life you experience is nothing short of fantastic. It is most definitely an experience you will treasure.

The reef formations, colors, slopes and drop offs where the best among the best. We enjoyed great visability and had a female Nurse Shark that came from time to time to check us out. Don't miss it and if you're with BDS diving shop, then your entire enjoyment is guaranteed.

I got the chance to visit Turneffe Reef while on a dive with Belize Diving Services. All I can say is that this was heaven down under. I dived through this incredible trench and saw the most magnificent coral and fish. We also saw a lobster and a green sea turtle. It was so peaceful diving through here. A must... More
