one of the few reefs i have been to that is still really healthy! snorkeling depths inside the reef is 4-6 feet, if you want deeper water swim just outside the reef for depths around 20 feet. very clear water with lots of wildlife. We saw several rays and nurse sharks and countless fish

The reef is very healthy with abundant wildlife. We saw green moray eels patrolling the reef, tons of eagle rays, nurse sharks, lion fish, and big schools

We ended up seeing sea turtles, rays, amazing schools of fish, and ended the dive with dolphins joining us for a swim. One of the best experiences I have ever had snorkeling! Absolutely amazing!!

We did 3 dives at Glovers while staying at Hamanasi Resort. they were our favorites in Belize. wonderful vis, great sea landscape, and lots of life. saw turtles, spotted eagle rays, plenty of nurse sharks including one at Long Caye Wall that stayed with us the entire dive, including through the narrow swim through. fantastic, memorable time.

Fairly good boat ride out to the reef, but well worth the time. Gorgeous reef. Nice easy dive. Would highly recommend.

Great diving with lots of sea life and beautiful reefs. We really liked the dive sites and the Hopkins Divers (Hamanasi) crew was outstanding.

Spent 4 days at Glovers Reef. Not sure what to say other than if you like world class diving, fishing, snorkeling with great people and cold beer at the end of the day, go.
