Dive the southern Barrier Reef of Belize with Scuba CenterSplash Dive Center Belize | Group Dive Trip to the Belize Barrier ReefWe'll spend the week diving with Splash Dive Center. Splash was founded in 2000 and is actively involved in both community and environmental projects for protection and sustainable tourism. In our experience, they are one of the very best dive operators in all of the Carribean. In addition to providing guests with the very highest standards of service, they aim to make dive trips educational, informative and fun. That is why all Splash Divemasters and Instructors are registered guides with the Belize Tourism Board.

Placencia offers you the best gateway to dive the world's second largest Barrier Reef. Over twenty five percent of Belize is protected as various types of reserves, and if you look at a map you will see that most of these are in the south. Some of the most pristine reef systems are in Southern Belize, and Gladden Spit the world famous Whale shark feeding site is just a short boat ride away. Silk Caye and South Water Caye are marine reserves and are abundant with aquatic life and pristine corals. The aquatic life varies in the different areas of the Belize Barrier reef and the topography ranges from sheer walls to fringing reef systems to atolls, patch reef and caverns. Our recent exploratory trip yielded squadrons of eagle rays, hawksbill and loggerhead turtles along with 3 species of sharks patroling the reefs.
