In April of 2006, travelers Karen Catchpole (writer) and Eric Mohl (photographer) embarked on the “Trans-Americas Journey”, a five year, 200,000 mile cross-country and cross-continental drive. Their adventures took them recently to Hamanasi and many other parts of Belize. The link below will take you to a recently published article describing their Belizean adventures!
Hamanasi Greens Its Dive Boat Fleet
Just in time for the 2010 whale shark diving season, Hamanasi Adventure Dive Resort in Hopkins has added a new eco–friendly custom–built dive boat to its fleet. The Hanóu, which means “Trigger Fish” in native Garifuna, can carry up to 25 divers and features four–stroke engines, which dramatically reduce emissions and improve fuel efficiency. For more information about Hamanasi and its dive packages,visit www.hamanasi.com.
Sometimes Mother Nature surprises you with an unexpected encounter that is beautiful and thrilling! These dolphins kept divers entertained throughout their dive yesterday as they searched for whale sharks. No whale shark sightings for the day, but happy divers for the experience!
IT’S HERE! “Hopkins Divers”, Hamanasi’s in-house PADI Dive Center, just received a new custom-built 45′ dive boat! This boat is equipped with three 200 hp 4-stroke Suzuki engines and will be an exciting addition to the Hamanasi fleet! The arrival is a great kick-off for the 2010 Whale Shark season, as well as our daily Barrier Reef dives and the beautiful Belizean Atolls!
Hamanasi is very excited to announce the launch of our new blog “Hamanasi Happenings”! The new and improved look is beautiful, user-friendly, and you can send interesting posts straight to Facebook and Twitter and see a spectacular photo gallery in Flickr. So check it out and spread the word!

The Whale Shark Season for 2009 will soon be here!!! We are so fortunate here in Belize that each year during the months of April, May and June, during the full moon cycle, we have the privilege of diving with these majestic fish!
