Best dive sites in Placencia

Gladden Split is the most famous and perhaps most exciting dive site in Placencia. Most operators only allow snorkeling with the whale sharks found here from April to June. If these gentle giants are your goal, plan your journey from two days before the full moon to ten days after it. The outer section of the reef is home to many advanced, deep sites. Here you’ll find walls that drop to unimaginable depths and strong currents. On the inner reef, there are a few small cayes, perfect for getting certified. These include Robert’s Caye and Laughing Bird Caye National Park, which is well-known for its variety of ray species.

Snorkeling in Placencia

Placencia is a great place to travel with non-divers. Because the whale shark experience occurs mostly from the surface, it’s perfect for snorkelers. And as long as snorkelers stay on the inside of the reef, there is plenty to see with little to no current. Many dive operators in town will be happy to arrange snorkeling tours.

Resort Description

Isla Marisol Resort is located on the Southwest Caye of Glover's Reef Atoll in Belize. 

The resort is set within a UN World Heritage Site and Protected Marine Park, allowing for great snorkelling, fishing, paddle boarding and scuba diving adventures. 

The family owned resort is made up of private beach cabanas and oceanfront reef houses. Facilities include an over-the-water bar, beachfront restaurant and dive shop. 

It is important to travel to and from the resort on Wednesday and Saturday when the transfers are organised. Due to the high cost of fuel, travelling on any other day will cost 1200 USD roundtrip. 

How to get there

Arrival

  • Isla Marisol is located on Southwest Caye, a private 18-acre island, 36 miles off the coast of Dangriga, Belize. 
  • You can reach the resort by boat in approximately 1.5 hours from Dangrira. 
  • Transfer days are Wednesday or Saturday, so your flight must arrive before 1pm on either of these days to catch on of the boats departing between 2pm and 3:30pm (advance notice required).
  • Private and off-day transfers can be arranged for $900.00 roundtrip. It is also possible to arrive a day early and stay overnight in Dangrira.
  • Transfers are from Dangrira airport, not from Belize International Airport. You will need to catch a local commuter flight from Belize International airport to Dangriga via Tropic air or Maya Island air. Tickets cost approx 180 USD per person round trip.

Departure

  • Boats depart Isla Marisol for the mainland twice each week, docking in Dangriga, on Wednesday and Saturday. 
  • Off-day and private transfers are available for 1200 USD roundtrip.
