Best dive sites in Ambergris Caye

There is a great variety of dive sites from shallow coral gardens to steep walls as well as canyons, channels, seagrass beds, and mangrove sites. Diving the Great Blue Hole is an absolute must but do note that it is a deep dive. You have to go beyond 100ft (30m) to see the cave and its formations (max depth 130ft). The caves are spectacular! Other areas that must be visited include Lighthouse Reef, Turneffe Atoll, and the Hol Chan Marine Reserve which is just off Ambergris Caye. Wherever you dive, visibility is likely to stretch beyond 100ft (30m).

Snorkeling in Ambergris Caye

The Belize Barrier Reef is perfect for snorkelers. You’ll be able to access many of the same areas as divers do with the help of a snorkeling tour. These are easily arranged through any operator on Ambergris Caye. At Shark Ray Alley, you’ll also be able to get close to stingrays and nurse sharks.

What to see

The large creatures often spotted during dives are friendly nurse sharks, stingrays, spotted eagle rays, and green sea turtles. Nurse sharks around Ambergris Caye are known to be rather inquisitive so don’t be alarmed to see them coming up really close. Besides that, there are many lobsters, damsel fish, barracuda and trevally.

Around seagrass beds near the mangrove swamps, see queen conch, juvenile fish and also juvenile lobsters or a critically endangered manatee. Around the atolls, Nassau grouper are common and you can find some critters like nudibranch, green moray eels and lots of basslets.

Description

Ramon’s Village Divers is conveniently located on the resort's private jetty, just steps from your accommodation and the white sand beach.

The variety of diving within minute’s access is astounding, including local coral gardens, Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Shark Alley, M&M Caverns, night diving or the mysterious Blue Hole. M&M Caverns winds its way from the resort’s dock through a series of tunnels and caverns and past huge coral mountains spurting right out of the sandy bottoms. Due to the relative depths just meters from these protected shallows, it’s a great place to spot pelagic cruising the reef. Also in the area are numerous shark, turtle and ray species, plus barracuda, moray eels, groupers and smaller creatures like triplefin blennies. Get lucky and you’ll have a magical encounter with a dugong or two- something you will remember for a lifetime!


As a PADI 5* IDC Center, you are in safe hands with Ramon’s Village Divers whether you are trying diving for the first time, or embarking on pro level training. Since the late 80’s the shop has been managed by Rick Sutherland, who take’s utmost care in selecting the best of the best staff that Belize and the international community has to offer. Step aboard any of the 4 spacious dive vessels moored on the dock, and look forward to the comfortable 5-15 minute journey to your dive site. Trips depart at 9:00am, 11:30am and 2:00pm, and due to the closeness of the dive sites, the boat returns to the dock between dives. This means you can pick and choose a dive schedule that works for you! If you want to bring your own gear then do so- you can store it in the purpose built storage facility. If not, the dive shop owns a large selection of high quality, well maintained equipment for rental.

Resort Description

Ramon's Village Resort was set up by Jacques Cousteau's former dive guide and has all the spectacular underwater experiences you'd expect from such lineage.

Ramon was a guide for Jacques and his team when they first discovered the Blue Hole back in the 70s. Almost 50 years later, Ramon’s Village Resort is a well-established, thriving and highly respected dive resort in San Pedro.

Designed with Polynesian style in mind, discover thatched roof cottages dotted among gardens packed with lush bougainvillea, lilies, hibiscus and palm trees. Winding its way between the tropical flora and only steps from your room is a sparkling blue pool, perfect for cooling off in the heat of the midday sun. 

In addition to world-class diving and snorkeling, enjoy fishing, beach picnics, cave tubing, a sailing cruise, Mayan ruins, bird watching, zip lining or an adventurous tour of Bacalar Chico Reserve.
