This is an AMAZING place!

This is hard to get to- which is good, because then it probably won't be trampled by too many people. Wonderful diving!! Few people, lots of fish.

Skip the Blue Hole entirely and head to this spot. Beautiful water and fish and not too far out from the mainland.

My daughter and I dove Glover's Atoll Marine Reserve one day with Belize Underwater out of Hopkins. I wish we had a week to dive Glover's. The variety of marine life was beautiful. We dove the Abyss, Aquarium and a third site. It would be more convenient to stay at a resort on Glover's and get in more dive time... More

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.
