Dive Shop Blue Hole Eagle Ray Mayan Ruin Nurse Shark Eco Divers Dolphins Tubing Sunrise

Ecologic Divers

This is our brand new dive shop rebuilt in the Fall of 2016 after Hurricane Earl destroyed our old shop.  We are still in the same place, on the north end of Barrier Reef Drive just south of the Phoenix Resort.  Yes, we are now open for business.  Please come visit us!

Great Blue Hole

The Great Blue Hole is a large submarine sinkhole off the coast of Belize.  It lies near the center of the Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 36 miles from Ambergris Caye.  The hole is circular in shape, 984 ft across and 407 feet deep.  We dive the Blue Hole to a depth of 130 feet where we explore the stalactites.

Mayan Ruins

Mayan ruins and archaeological sites are found throughout Belize.   The Xunantunich site is located 80 miles west of Belize City near the Guatemalan border.  Pictured is the El Castillo temple at Xunantunich, the second tallest structure in Belize.  Let us book your mainland trips and tours.

Spotted Eagle Ray

Spotted eagle rays are commonly sighted in Belize waters, and you will often see them on our dive trips.  If you are snorkeling at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, be on the lookout for them swimming through the bowl.  They are amazingly beautiful and graceful critters.

Nurse Shark

Nurse sharks seem to always be around on many of our dive trips.  They are, for the most part, harmless.  Ask your Divemaster to dive Esmeralda as these sharks frequent the area.  In contrast to other local dive shops, we do not allow the touching of sharks or any other marine wildlife.

Our Dive Guests

This is a group of our dive guests chillaxing in one of the pools at the Phoenix Resort next door to our dive shop.   The Phoenix Resort was named the best hotel in the world in 2012 by Trip Advisor.  Book a condo at The Phoenix -- it is definitely a first class place to stay on your dive vacation!

Dolphins

You never know when a pod of dolphins is going to show up on one of our dive trips.  It is fun to see them play and interact within the pod, and also with the divers -- they show real personality.

Cave Tubing

Cave tubing is a fun, low stress adventure on the mainland.  The waters in the river are normally shallow, cool and refreshing, and the cave is surprisingly large and long.  Book this trip with us on a day when cruise ships are not in port in order to avoid the maddening crowds.

Sunrise

Sunrise at the start of a beautiful day with our catamarans "Infinity" and "Inpromptu" at anchor near our dive shop.  Ask about live aboard chartering of these beautiful yachts in the cayes of Belize. . .
