FOR CERTIFIED DIVERS
Our guests can enjoy two dives each morning with our professional dive leaders and instructors. All gear, along with snacks and beverages, are on the boat in the morning, and due to our convenient location guests are able to enjoy lunch at the resort, and take in an additional dive in the afternoon. Night diving over the reef is spectacular and offered upon request.
Diving is a way of life at St. George’s. With well over 40 years of combined diving experience, our professionals will help you plan your diving itinerary step-by-step, along with any refresher courses needed or certifications desired. A comfortable and safe atmosphere is provided for every diver with our limited group sizes, customized dive boats and attention to each individual diver’s skill and experience level. Our professionals set up your gear for each dive, clean and
store your gear after diving, and take care of any needs and special requests. We leave the “cattle boat” experience to others. Our “Valet Diving” program promises the utmost in personalization—our dive team does all the work and you have all the fun!
LIONFISH DIVE SAFARI
In order to help control the invasive lionfish population around Belize, our dive
professionals often take spear guns with them. The excitement of the hunt – stalking
the spiny fish, getting in position for the shot, and pulling the trigger – is exhilarating.
We offer the opportunity to join in the fun to our guests who are competent divers.
There is a surcharge for this specialty dive, but we also give credit for your catch!
And with a little luck we can bring back enough for the chef to prepare as appetizers for everyone – it’s a delicious white fish!
BLUE HOLE / ATOLLS DIVING
A Mecca for SCUBA enthusiasts, the Blue Hole is a sink hole located within the Lighthouse Reef Atoll that spans 1000 feet in diameter and measures 408 feet at its deepest point. Discovered by Jacques Cousteau in the early 1970s, the Blue Hole is a natural masterpiece to behold. St. George’s Caye Resort offers full-day three-tank dive trips where you can delve beneath the surface to discover the Blue Hole’s cavernous spaces adorned with stalactites. It’s not uncommon to see a black tip reef shark or even a hammerhead as you descend deeper. Day trips include two additional wall dives at the Lighthouse Reef Atoll and lunch at the picturesque Half Moon Caye Natural Monument, the exclusive nesting site of nearly 1500 pairs of Atlantic red-footed booby birds.
Regular 3-tank dive day cost plus $185 (pre-reserved)
Marine park fee ($40) additional
Price when booked on-site varies based on number of participants
Same trip for snorkeler at $225
Two-tank morning dive trips to Turneffe Atolls available for as little as $20 over local reef dive price.

Diving the Blue Hole, because it is deeper than 100’, technically requires Advanced Certification including the Deep Diving specialty. But we do take Open Water certified divers if they have enough diving experience and our dive masters believe it will be safe. If you are not Deep Dive Certified be sure to schedule at least one local reef dive with our dive masters early in your stay so that they can evaluate whether or not it will be safe for you to dive the Blue Hole.
Full-day 3-tank trip to the Blue Hole/Lighthouse Reef (This trip is always subject to safe weather & sea conditions, and with the SDR / DEMA special pricing requires a minimum of 4 participants, so cannot be guaranteed ahead of time.
