Hamanasi dive trips explore areas in and around the South Water Caye Marine Reserve, the largest marine reserve in Belize, spanning from just north of Tobacco Caye to a cut five miles south of South Water Caye called Grand Channel. The trip out to the Southern Barrier Reef is ten miles and it takes 30-40 minutes to get to the first dive site. This pristine southern section of the reef sees few divers and is typically a wall dive that is interspersed with sand channels and spur and groove sections. With literally dozens of dive sites, Hamanasi divemasters will show you a wide variety of this area.
This adventure can be included in any of our packages. If you do not purchase a package, this tour may be booked a la carte for the listed price.

I’ve been to quite a few dive resorts. Hamanasi is hands down, the best so far. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Best dive experience we have ever had. Everyone top Notch. Best vacation ever!
This is my 6th Belize dive adventure in the past 18 years and my best ALL around experience.
Everything surpassed our expectations. We came here as new diver because we wanted an operation we could trust and we found that here.
