Belize Sun Dancer II - Belize, Latin America

As recommended by the Belize Sun Dancer II Liveaboard

Sun Dancer II visits atolls that lie offshore beyond Belize's barrier reef. The most famous of the atolls is Lighthouse Reef, home of the Blue Hole and the magnificent nature preserve at Half Moon Caye. You can expect visibility to reach 36m (120ft) or more at these spectacular sites. The walls and drop-offs are spectacular. The reef is virgin and pristine. The waters surrounding Belize are teeming with large and small fish and some of the most spectacular sponge formations found anywhere. During the dives, a wide variety of marine life can be observed such as eagle rays, turtles, tarpon, sharks and the occasional wild dolphin. Among the reef's inhabitants are enormous schools of jack, large black groupers, green morays, octopus and midnight parrotfish.

The Blue Hole
Encounter with huge stalactites formed thousands of years ago. Measuring about 1,000 feet in diameter and more than 121m (400ft) deep, you can dive among the stalactites at a depth of 33-40m (110 to 130 ft). This is a very memorable dive.

Half Moon Caye Wall
Hawksbill turtles and Spotted Eagle Rays are regular sights and there are some of the most spectacular sponge formations found anywhere.

The Elbow
Located on Turneffe Islands Atoll is one of Belize's most exciting and fish filled dive experiences. Enormous schools of jacks are often sighted in the blue water.

Along the shallow side of a mid-reef at southern Turneffe is The Sayonara, a broken up shipwreck of a small island freighter. The Sayonara is an excellent site for seeing a variety of marine life, including the rare Lined Toadfish found only in Belize.

Very large Black Groupers, Green Morays, Caribbean Octopus and Midnight Parrotfish are among the reef's inhabitants.Visibility in excess of 36m (120ft) can be expected and annual water temperatures range from 78 to 84 F. A wide variety of marine life can be observed during the dives, such as eagle rays, manta rays, turtles, tarpon and the occasional wild dolphin.
