Blue Hole Lighthouse: Scuba Diving and Snorkeling Adventure PhotoBlue Hole Lighthouse: Scuba Diving and Snorkeling Adventure Photo

Take a tour to Belize’s most famous oceanic attraction – the gorgeous, sapphire sinkhole known as the Belize Blue Hole. This tour is purely a sightseeing tour, and while its known as a dive site, the sinkhole actually doesn’t contain much to see. It’s best known for its emptiness, which as just as easily appreciated on a boating tour. When you arrive at the reef around the hole, you'll have the chance to do some snorkeling – bring snorkeling equipment if you're interested.

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.

What to Bring

Comfortable clothes, sunglasses,hat or cap, sunscreen, swimming suit, a camera, mask, snorkel, and fins for snorkeling, as well as money for personal expenses and tips.

What's included

Boat transportation and guide.
