DIVING BASIL JONES (3 Tank)
Basil Jones is a one hour boat ride from the dock. It is a full-day, three tank diving tour. For safety reasons, groups are kept to 8 or less, with four being the minimum to confirm a tour.
FIRST DIVE: Your first dive of the day will be at Sandy Point, a well known dive site for its incredible tunnel formations. This dive starts off at about 50 feet at the entrance of the tunnel and slopes down to a maximum depth of about 100 feet. At the end of the dive, you are welcome aboard with purified drinking water, a fresh tray of fruits and snacks. Your surface interval will occur while cruising to your second dive of the day.
SECOND DIVE: Your second dive of the day is at Basil Jones Canyons, where the reef meets with the land on the north end of Ambergris Caye. The majestic canyon formation stretches out about 70 to 100 feet to the east in between finger canyons which slope down to over 100 feet. After your second dive, we will go ashore at Basil Jones where you will have the opportunity to purchase lunch and have a short time to relax on the beach before we travel to your last dive site.
THIRD DIVE: Your last dive of the day is at Mata Rocks Canyons. It is a slightly shallower dive site popular for the abundance of queen conchs on the sandy area which attracts eagle rays and nurse sharks. We arrive back at the dock around 4:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
