Dive courses come with all the gear you need to dive, alhtough divers provide their own mask and fins.

Dive Gear

The dive shop has Sherwood BCD's and Regulators; they are upgraded regularly.

 

The water is so warm and clear, it's perfect for beginning divers.


Q: My certification is with another organization other than PADI. Does the Long Caye Dive Shop accept my certification so I can go diving on your trips?

A: NAUI, SSI, ACUC, CMAS, and BSAC are other scuba certification organizations that we accept. Persons with these certifications may dive as certified divers diving with us. If they want to take a course, they would receive the certification from PADI. In a nutshell, we accept any scuba certification card as long as it is from a widely recognized diving organization.

Q: Do you provide or rent dive computers? If not I might rent one at home and bring it.

A: All of our staff have computers and make a dive plan for each dive. We dive as a group with a dive master on each dive, and each dive is a multilevel dive utilizing the wheel, so it is not necessary for individual divers to have a computer to dive with us, and most do not. We do not have dive computers to rent. Sometimes guests will rent one from a local dive shop near home or borrow from a friend for their dive holiday if they do not have one or don't want to buy one.

Divers Alert Network

(DAN) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit medical and research organization dedicated to the safety and health of recreational scuba divers. Founded in 1980, DAN has served as a lifeline for the scuba industry by operating diving's only 24-hour emergency hotline, a lifesaving service for injured divers. Additionally, DAN operates a diving medical information line, conducts vital diving medical research, and develops and provides a number of educational programs for everyone from beginning divers to medical professionals.

It costs $29/year to join, and for an additional $25-70 per year you have a choice of a variety of insurance plans. Divers should consider this excellent coverage.

Dive Belize

Just off our island resort at Glover's Reef, Belize lies "The Wall" - the stunning coral-covered face of the continental shelf, where the sea floor drops away to 3000 feet in just a mile.

 

Rated one of the top deep sea diving areas in the world, it rivals any location in the Caribbean, the Red Sea, or the South Pacific. The top of The Wall is seen in the photo of our island above, where the bright white sand line meets the deep blue of the ocean.

"The dive shop is just down the beach from our facility on Long CayeWhy I loved diving off Glover's Reef: (1) I wore just a 1.5mm suit - no need for a hood or thick suit; (2) It's a wonderfully remote site - there aren't hundreds of divers or live-aboards all over the place; (3) the coral is beautiful and the fish abundant - I also saw a number of turtles and dolphins; (4) It was great to have such great diving so close the island - no need to travel far distances!"

Diving Parameters:

-All dives are wall dives and guided from boats; no shore diving allowed. Average boat ride to dive site is 2 - 10 minutes.

-Average length of dive is 35-50 minutes in bottom time.

-Dive group size is 2-8 guests.

-Single divers are guaranteed a buddy because a licensed tour guide and Dive Master accompanies every dive

-Divers are grouped together. If only one person is interested in diving, diving may not be offered every time the single diver wants to go. For example, if only one person wants to dive for a full week, it would not be possible for them to dive 3 times a day (each dive requires 2 staff members + gasoline).

-If only one person is interested in a course, the course is almost always available but not guaranteed (inquire for status). For example, if several courses are going on already and the weather turns bad, someone deciding to take a course at the last minute might not be able to be accommodated. Also the more advanced courses take more time and advance notice is needed.

-If you are a certified diver but have not been diving in a long time, you can take the Discover Scuba course as a refresher. If the course is already being offered to others, they will allow certified divers to sit in on the lecture portion for free.

-Divers supply their own mask, fins, snorkel

-Prices include tank, air, weights with belt, transport

-Weights are simple strap belts with 2, 3 and 4 lb. weights threaded onto the belt. They are provided for all divers, but are not available for rent for non-diving activities

-Wetsuits are provided for all courses (very limited sizes available), but are not available to rent for non-diving activities

-Limited dive lights are available to rent for night scuba dives, but cannot be guaranteed available for all, you should bring your own light if you want to night dive. Dive lights are not available to rent to snorkelers

-Dive locations, time of dives, and duration of dives will be at the discretion of dive shop management

-Diving is often unavailable on Saturday, this is a transfer day and staff may not be available to take guests diving

 

Beginning dive courses are taught at the island dive shop.

Belize Scuba Courses

Looking for scuba diving schools in Belize? Our island dive shop, located just down the beach from Slickrock’s facility on Long Caye, is a PADI scuba center with tanks, compressor, and two dive boats. Guests often take time off from our activities to go scuba diving. In addition to dives for certified divers, they provide Discover Scuba/Resort courses that permit non-divers to train and continue to dive for the rest of the week. They also offer many advanced scuba courses. Long Caye Dive Shop is a certified member of the PADI International Resort Association and is a full-service PADI training facility.

We often see Hawksbill Turtles, like this spotted right off The Wall.

Medical Concerns

All divers must be physically fit to dive. If there is any medical issue that a you may have, the dive shop requests that the student visit the PADI website to obtain a copy of the PADI medical release form. Your doctor needs to fill this out; PADI no longer recognizes a simple note from the doctor allowing the student to dive. Areas of concern for diving fitness include: diabetes, respiratory problems, circulation problems, heart problems, major surgery, and asthma.

 

 

 

Kids as young as 10 can be certified to dive.

Diving for Kids

Kids ages 8 and 9 may take the Bubblemaker course which has a 6-foot depth limit and takes one-half day. Kids ages 10 and 11 may be able to dive as a regular diver, this age limit is under the discretion of our Dive Instructor. Kids ages 12 and over may get certified to dive, or take the one-half day Discover Scuba course if they wish. Non-divers or snorkelers will not be able to join divers on the boat while divers are diving or taking courses. Therefore, single parents may not go scuba diving unless they have another adult in their party that can supervise their kids while they dive.

 

If the child is in a dive course, he will not be able to dive with his parents until he is certified, unless the parents are also students in the same course. During courses students must dive with a Dive Instructor while certified divers dive with a Dive Master. The two groups may share the boat ride to a dive, but they will not be diving together. Also, when the student is doing skills with the Instructor, we have found in the past that having family members along who are just watching and not taking the course at the same time tend to distract from the lesson. After the course is completed, the child will be certified and then they can all dive together as certified divers.
