DIVING TURNEFFE ATOLL
Turneffe Elbow Belize is the largest of the three atolls and the only one with an extensive cover of mangroves, featuring spectacular wall diving suitable for every level of diver. Because of its undeveloped, the atoll has an untouched marine life. Visibility is excellent, making it easy to enjoy the large school of horse-eye jacks, snapper, and permits. Turneffe Elbow Belize makes the scuba diving an adventure like no other dive destination in the Caribbean. The vastness and variety of marine life and coral formations are truly unmatched.
The isolation, lack of any large-scale development and the natural attributes of the atoll makes Turneffe Elbow Belize the most biologically diverse coral atoll in the Caribbean. Sixty species of birds live or migrate through here. The water teams with dolphins and sharks.
With visibility, up to 100 feet and such a rich marine environment we were able to see spotted eagle rays slowly flapping by like birds underwater, loggerhead turtles, colorful and diverse coral formations (soft and hard), big schools of creole wrasse which flash by in a blur of black and blue, tiny snapping shrimp (which really do snap), spotted toadfish, peppermint shrimp, dancing crabs and a remora (aka suckerfish) so big it had a smaller remora attached to it and lots more.
Your Turneffe Elbow Belize package includes breakfast, lunch, snacks, soda’s, and water. We prefer small groups (between 4-6) people. Our diving is done on the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere, the beauty of our reef is unrivaled.
