It's quite the boat ride to Glover's; and the scenery above and below the surface makes it well worth it! Diving here is absolutely stunning! There is so much to see on the reef. From Nurse Sharks, Loggerhead Turtles, Caribbean Sting Rays, Morray eels, Eagle Rays, Grouper, Black tip reef sharks, plenty of lobster, Lion fish, Bat fish, Angel Fish,... More

My wide and I did a 3-tank dive at Glover's with Hopkins Underwater Adventure. The dives were one of the highlights of our vacation with 100+ feet visibility.

We dove Glover’s Reef Atoll area while staying with a resort out of Hopkins. It was a pleasant 1.5 hour boat ride over pretty smooth water (thanks to the reef); which was nothing for the 100-200ft visibility (I have boated 3+ hours for a lot less!). There are a bunch of little islands dotted about that you can stop at... More

Snorkeling here was the highlight of our trip. It was like swimming thru the best aquarium. Breathtakingly beautiful.

We loved our diving in the Marine Reserve. Lots of loggerhead turtles and eagle rays. Nice population of grouper underwater and more sharp nose puffers than I have ever seen anywhere. There are some significant lion fish populations scattered about and suspect these lionfish are responsible for the missing diversity of fish that I am used to seeing in Belize.... More

This was beautiful, incredible, breathtaking, but we did suffer some sunburn even on the overcast day. The atolls are a site to see, dotting the Belizean waterscape.

Great LIVE coral reef. About an hour boat ride from the coast. Spectacular day on the water. All the cayes are great. We plan on spending time soon. ec Denver co

Imagine have giant sea turtles swim right up to you (we did) and so much more. Worth it! It's about an hour boat ride to get there - and that too is delightful.

Visibility not so great because coral were spawning. Otherwise, fantastic coral. A little ways from mainland.
