Belize gets Nod as First of Ten Best Dives in North America


The Jacksonville Business Journal just did an article (March 23, 2014) on the ten best dive spots in North America.

And who came in as number one? Belize’s Half Moon Caye, which is indeed one of the top dives in the country, and not far from the famous Blue Hole, probably the most iconic and certainly most photographed dive hole on the planet ever since being made popular by Jacques Cousteau’s Calypso documentary (go ahead, hit Google and see…).

And these are just two of many incredible dives along the 180-mile Belize Great Barrier Reef.

That’s the beauty of the Belize’s Great Barrier Reef – it puts you close to so many very different dives that you can get a week’s worth of variety in one day.

Here’s what the Jacksonville Business Journal had to say about Half Moon Caye:

1. Dive: Half Moon Caye, Belize

Half Moon Caye in Belize offers divers the chance to go on a wall dive–a dive in which the vertical facades of the earth’s landmasses are explored. The depths at Half Moon Caye (and really at any wall dive) are tremendous, giving you the very correct feeling that you are staring into an abyss. The waters at Half Moon Caye are particularly clear, despite the depth, so you will be able to see all manner of wildlife, including loggerhead turtles, rays, barracuda, and eels. 

Other noteworthy spots were in the British Virgin Islands, Point Lobos, Carmel, California, Keahole Point, Hawaii and the ironically named Ray of Hope shipwreck in the Bahamas.

Now, we can’t speak for the other dives, but the Half Moon Caye Wall is spectacular, and if you try one of Chaa Creek’s all-inclusive Belize Vacation packages, with air service from our front door to Ambergris Caye, you can explore ancient Maya archaeological sites, vast tracts of pristine rainforest full of exotic wildlife and dive what many consider to be the finest spots on earth – all in one luxurious yet affordable package that makes such variety not only do-able but incredibly easy.
