Sustainable Diving at Belize Dive Haven
Divers have the privilege of seeing the beauty of our oceans and seas but unfortunately, they also see first-hand how fragile and threatened our underwater ecosystem is. At Belize Dive Haven, we believe in promoting sustainable diving and have taken great strides to ensure our resort is eco-friendly.
With the Belize Barrier Reef running in front of the resort, we encourage our guests to experience the breathtaking view but also remind them of simple ways they can help keep the reef healthy for generations to come.
- Always be mindful of your gear (including fins) and be careful to not disrupt the delicate coral.
- Practice and maintain buoyancy skills to avoid colliding with the reef and marine life. If you want to practice your skills before hitting the open water, our pool is always available for our guests to brush up their skills.
- Bring a camera to capture the moment, but please don’t remove anything (other than trash) from the reef or ocean floor.
When building the resort, our long term goal was to make it green and environmentally friendly. We are planning to install a solar farm to provide energy for the resort and have planted crops with the goal of feeding our guests using only local ingredients. We also believe it’s important to sustain the local economy which is why we prioritize hiring local workers and supporting local businesses for all our resort needs.
