The Aquarium is almost directly across the water from Belize Dive Haven, making it a quick trip for our guests. It’s a great place for divers of all levels and the beautiful underwater scenery makes it an ideal place to practice your underwater photography skills.
Marine life you can expect to see during a dive:
Named because of the variety of invertebrates found here, you can spot something different every time you dive The Aquarium. Keep your eyes out for shrimp, grouper, parrotfish, sergeant major and even pintano.
Coral you can expect to see during a dive:
There are coral ridges that run perpendicular to the reef that are filled with holes where marine life like to hide. At the top of the nearly 50-foot wall, the coral reef is referred to as a table-top formation. Plus, you can even spot some deep-water lace coral and black coral.
The Aquarium has become a guest-favourite for divers visiting Belize Dive Haven. If you’ve ever been interested in diving this spectacular location, book your stay at Belize Dive Haven. We offer both 4-day and 7-day vacations that include up to three dives per day.
