LIONFISH DIVE SAFARI
In order to help control the invasive lionfish population around Belize, our dive professionals often take spear guns with them. The excitement of the hunt – stalking the spiny fish, getting in position for the shot, and pulling the trigger – is exhilarating. We offer the opportunity to join in the fun to our guests who are competent divers. There is a surcharge for this specialty dive, but we also give credit for your catch! And with a little luck we can bring back enough for the chef to prepare as appetizers for everyone – it’s a delicious white fish!
BLUE HOLE / ATOLLS DIVING
A Mecca for SCUBA enthusiasts, the Blue Hole is a sink hole located within the Lighthouse Reef Atoll that spans 1000 feet in diameter and measures 408 feet at its deepest point. Discovered by Jacques Cousteau in the early 1970s, the Blue Hole is a natural masterpiece to behold. St. George’s Caye Resort offers full-day three-tank dive trips where you can delve beneath the surface to discover the Blue Hole’s cavernous spaces adorned with stalactites. It’s not uncommon to see a black tip reef shark or even a hammerhead as you descend deeper. Day trips include two additional wall dives at the Lighthouse Reef Atoll and lunch at the picturesque Half Moon Caye Natural Monument, the exclusive nesting site of nearly 1500 pairs of Atlantic red-footed booby birds.
