Learn to dive in the Belizean Caribbean

Diving in Barrier Reef

Take an optional PADI course in the Caribbean Cayes, where aquamarine waters teem with tropical marine life.

Laid-back Belize hides a bustling underwater world, with coral reefs packed with colourful fish and other exotic creatures. 

Tracing the coastline in a continuous stripe of coral, a 300km barrier reef provides a habitat for at least 500 species of fish. It's the greatest reef of its kind in the western hemisphere, and when combined with the three huge atolls to be found farther offshore it's no wonder that the thriving marine environment supported by this mass of coral makes Belize a popular place to learn to dive.

Whether you want to complete a beginner's PADI course, take your skills to the next level with an advanced course, or simply get a taste of the diving experience on a trial dive, there are options for all abilities and schedules.
