Glover's Reef Atoll

In Southern Belize and directly offshore from Hamanasi is Glover’s Reef Atoll. Named after the 17th century pirate John Glover, who used the remote islands as the base for his raids against Spanish galleons heading to and from the Bay Islands of Honduras, Glover’s Reef probably best represents the incredible diversity and pure diving potential that Belize has to offer. We motor out sixteen miles past the Barrier Reef which takes us just over one hour to the first dive site. If visibility is good we like to dive a site called "The Pinnacles", which has enormous coral heads rising up 40 ft/12 m or more from the bottom. Our second and third dives are on the east side of the atoll where the water depth quickly drops off to more than 2000ft/660m and visibility is usually over 100 feet.

We dive several sites on this side of the Atoll and usually dive Long Caye Wall, a world class dive that is always memorable.  At this site we drop onto a big field of bright white sand at 40 feet/12 m, home to southern stingrays and garden eels.  While descending you can spot garden eels slowly dropping into their holes.  As you approach the wall running the length of the sandy area it looks like the coral is growing out of the sand bottom in big chunks.  Just as you crest the wall the sand appears to be running like small rivers down through the coral into mini canyons.  With the usual 100+ ft/30+m visibility, the view down the wall gives the impression of limitless space.  We follow the top of the wall and explore the sand channels exploding with fish and marine life.  Travel time to Glover's is approximately 1.5 hours.

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.

Best dive experience we have ever had. Everyone top Notch. Best vacation ever!

I’ve been to quite a few dive resorts. Hamanasi is hands down, the best so far. Thank you for a wonderful time.
