Blue Hole Belize | Can I dive it from Glovers Reef?

Spotted file fishAre you wondering where to dive in Belize? Do you want to do it all in one trip? Have you heard about Blue Hole Belize and are you wondering whether you can access it from Glover’s Reef?

We have an eco-resort on Long Caye, which is on Glover’s Reef. And we have many incredible dives within 10 minutes from our island. Because we are right on the reef, we never do 2 tank dives. We ride the boat 5 minutes, get to the reef, dive, and ride back. You can do another long dive later in the day, after you catch a few runs on our private wave.

We have a lot of different dive sites this close to our shore: Long Caye Wall, Bev’s Garden, The Abyss, Middle Caye Wall, The Crack, and The Aquarium just to name a few. We dive these sites every week.

No one else is out there, we have the whole place to ourselves.

Blue Hole Belize

You would never, however, access Lighthouse Reef, where Blue Hole Belize is located, from Glover’s Reef. To visualize this you need to look at a Belize map. Lighthouse Reef is always accessed from due west because the tradewinds blow from the east. In that way, coming from Belize City, you would first ‘hide’ behind the Barrier Reef, then hide behind Turneffe Islands, then hide behind Lighthouse Reef itself to avoid a rough boat ride. If you went from Glover’s to Lighthouse it would be 100% in the open ocean, fighting the wind the whole way. By the time you got there, you would never feel like diving.

Blue Hole Belize has ray and sharksSo come to Glover’s Reef for the pristine uncrowded diving. Then return to Belize City and head out to Ambergris Caye or Caye Caulker for a day of diving the Blue Hole.

I predict you will prefer having the whole ocean, just you, your dive buddy and the Dive Master! There are not many places in the world this seldom-visited. Come check it out this winter!
