Your tour begins with an early morning breakfast on the dock. Then you’ll hop on board the 46-foot (14-m) dive boat for a 2.5-hour ride to the Lighthouse Reef. This reef is swarming with marine wildlife, including sea turtles and sharks.
This is a peaceful boat ride that arrives at the Blue Hole by 9:00 AM. You’ll take a pause here to absorb this unusual sight, and take plenty of pictures. It’s one of the most-photographed sites in the world, and you’ll see why for yourself in the calm of the morning.
The Blue Hole is undoubtedly Belize’s most recognizable attraction. Located at the center of the Lighthouse Reef Atoll, this incredible sinkhole measures 1,000 feet (300 m) across and sits in the center of a small circular reef.
