This three tank trip heads northeast cruising past remote fishing camps and idyllic cayes before punching out of the protective Barrier Reef for a short crossing to Turneffe Islands Atoll. Our first dive is one of Belize’s most famous dive sites, “The Elbow”. This has a convergence of several ocean currents passing by canyon-type formations. Here you may swim through enormous schools of horse-eye jacks, Atlantic spade fish, snappers, permit and possibly even sea sharks, turtles and eagle rays!
During surface intervals you will go into the sheltered lagoon surrounded by mangrove islands. On the next two dives you experience sheer walls for which Turneffe is famous. It is common to see moray eels, turtles, rays, big barrel sponges and large coral formations while drifting along the edge of the abyss. We usually end our trip with the shipwreck site Sayonara. It is a broken wreck sitting at less than 60 feet depth on top of a steep wall. This site has a proliferation of fish and big coral formations including swim-throughs.
