Scuba diving information in Caye Caulker, Northern Cayes, Belize

The diving around Caye Caulker is spur-and-groove reefs with some deep canyons, swim throughs and reef cuts. The corals have scattered heads, sea fans, and gorgonians that form immense spur and groove surge channels perpendicular to the shoreline, adorned by yellow tube and azure vase sponges, large barrel sponges and a respectable amount of marine life.

The most popular snorkeling sites are Hol Chan Marine Park and Shark-Sting Ray Alley. In Hol Chan Marine Park you may expect to see large groupers, nurse sharks, sting rays, moray and other eels, spadefish, schoolmasters and other fish. For a more interesting and convoluted bottom featuring caves full of copper sweepers and a resident school of horse-eyed jacks, the dive site Caverns is another local favorite.
