Due east of our dock this remote island group is a UNESCO world heritage site and 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 big coral heads rising up 40 feet 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 2000 feet 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.

We drop onto a big field of bright white sand at 40 feet, 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+ feet visibility, the view down the wall gives the impression of limitless space. In reality, the wall is a 2000+ foot drop-off into the deep blue. We follow the top of the wall and explore the sand channels exploding with fish and marine life.

Please note:
- All divers are required to complete a Scuba Diving Liability Release Waiver and sign off on PADI’s Safe Diving Standards.
- All divers must have certification cards and all major certifications are accepted. No one is permitted to dive without a valid certification card, unless he participates in a Discover Scuba Diving or Open Water Course.
- Certified divers who have not had the pleasure of diving for over a year are strongly encouraged to complete a short Rusty Diver Course.
- Trip minimums apply! If we do not have enough divers for our trips, especially atoll trips, we will stick to the Barrier Reef. In that unlikely event you will still be able to enjoy excellent diving on a great number of different sites. We try to dive all 3 atolls every week but are not always successful. We dive the Southern Barrier Reef almost every day.
- Gear storage is free of charge and available in our center. Hamanasi staff carries all gear to and from the boats, assists with preparation and washes all equipment in fresh water every day. Our company is not liable for missing or damaged equipment.
- The nearest recompression chamber is on Ambergris Caye. Our company is a paid member of the group managing the chamber. A portion of our dive fees is paid over to the Recompression Chamber. This contribution supports the chamber and reduces your fees in the unlikely event that you would need to use the chamber.
- Water temperature is 78-85 F degrees all year. A 3-mm short or full wetsuit is recommended.

- Tanks, weights, belts, entry fees, juice and cookies are included in rates. Lunch is included on atoll trips
