Diving at Glovers is perfect!

Perfect dive spot! Lots of marine life and beautiful corals. About 2 to 3 hours by boat from Hopkins but worth the trip.

This reef, the second largest in the world, had great varieties of fish in crystal clear water. Coral in good shape, with less bleaching than we noticed in the Keys. Large rays, the occasional shark, and plenty of the most colorful reef-dwellers.

We had an incredible day on the water visiting the reef, snorkeling and fishing. the best part was having my wife catch a 3 foot barracuda and eating it for lunch on a private cay that had a full kitchen and cold beer to go with it.

I've read about Glover's Reef about 8 years ago and have always wanted to dive out here. I got 3 dives in with Belize Underwater located in Hopkins. Would recommend that you go check it out!

There is spectacular diving here (we went with Belize Underwater). The reef is 30+ miles off shore, the fish are plentiful, the visibility typically good.

Had great time with looks of sealife to see and beautiful coral reefs and drop offs. Water very clear and warm. They are keeping this in great condition.

A great experience seeing the sea undeworld with a tour guide who would point out and then tell us what kind of fish or coral we were seeing. Although sometimes you weren't close enough to hear him. You go out 14 miles, snorkel for an hour, head to a nearby island for snacks which were great, and then snorkel for... More

The reefs here are in fantastic condition, and our dive masters work hard to keep them that way. We saw lots of nurse sharks, turtles, rays and of course the usual beautiful reef coral and fish you would expect on a healthy Caribbean Sea reef.

I really enjoyed the topography with great canyons and holes to swim through (diving that is) would have been nice to spend more time and do it again. Alas the company we were diving with wasn't keen for us to go below 18 metres as we had less experienced divers with us. We were sitting at 28 but swimming directly... More

This was easily the most amazing experience of my life. Snorkeling in Glover's Reef offered me the opportunity to swim with countless colorful coral dwelling fish, a giant sting ray, an eagle ray, and a large nurse shark. I'm confident that a second day in the reef would have meant another completely new experience, where I would have seen an... More
