The team at Belize Underwater asked themselves what the ultimate underwater experience on their local reefs would look like—then set to work creating it. The result: dive guides that deliver the perfect balance of safety and local experience along with personality, fun and instant camaraderie.

Whether you’re staying at a sister Muy'ono Resort, locally in Hopkins, or overnighting in the Cayes, Belize Underwater is the tour operator for Middle Belize, servicing the Hopkins and Dangriga areas, as well as South Water Caye. Here, most of the sites are walls, and nearly every dive is a drift.

This region is famous for pristine reefs—the healthiest in Belize—as well as an abundance of eagle rays, nurse sharks, turtles and macro life. The macro life, including nudibranchs, jawfish and slipper lobsters, tends to be one of the most underrated aspects of this area.

Belize Underwater stands out among the competition for its dive guides that bring to the table more than 150 years of local experience, from fish and critter identification to matching divers to sites based on ability and preferences.

As for safety, Belize has its own standards, but this operator far exceeds those. Every quarter, Belize Underwater run safety drills to keep every staff member sharp on first aid, oxygen delivery and rescue scenarios.

In the water, the diver-to-guide ratio is never higher than 8-to-1. Guests who would like more attention always have the option to hire a private guide. This cost is one set fee, regardless of whether that private guide joins just one diver or a group of up to four.

Every guide is also brought on only if they match the fun, welcoming culture of the team. With Belize Underwater, you arrive as a guest, but leave as a friend.
