The Belize Barrier Reef is a superb coastal reef system with dozens of dive sites. Every day is different. The nutrients introduced into the system by the rivers and mangroves of the mainland make the Barrier Reef the best place to see marine mammals (dolphins especially) and large reef fish. Because this is a coastal reef system, visibility can be as low as 50 ft., and the seas are frequently rough, making these dives more advanced than most of the atoll dives.
The northern San Pedro area is known for its friendly Nurse Sharks and large grouper. You will also find more than 160 species of fish and 40 species of corals, sponges, algae, and sea turtles. The topography of the area has a sloping shelf, dramatically cut with deep canyons and crevices, winding to the reef’s outer edge where the continental shelf begins its plunge into the Caribbean trench.
