Amigos Del Mar - Scuba Diving, Snorkeling, Vessels, Certification Classes

Turneffe Atoll, Belize

Turneffe is the largest of the three atolls and the only one with an extensive cover of mangroves, featuring spectacular wall diving suitable for every level of diver. Because of its undeveloped, the atoll has an untouched marine life. Visibility is excellent, making it easy to enjoy the large school of horse-eye jacks, snapper, and permits. Turneffe Island makes the scuba diving an adventure like no other dive destination in the Caribbean. The vastness and variety of marine life and coral formations are truly unmatched.

Turneffe North

Turneffe is the closest atoll to Ambergris Caye and the largest of all the atolls. It has some of the most spectacular wall dives, with abundant healthy coral formations, colorful reefs and large sponges. Enjoy a panoramic display of crystal clear Caribbean water and island beauty as we transport you to Turneffe Atoll. Here you will be diving in the magnificent walls of Calabash Caye. These walls hold the largest shoals of fish you will ever see. An amazing wall dive at the Virgin Corals and its beautyful coral formations is guranteed to be one of the highlights of your dive trip.

Turneffe South - The Elbow

Some spectacular diving awaits you here at the elbow, the southern tip of the atoll. Here you will experience the ultimate in wall diving. The currents here supply a natural concentration of food which accounts for the huge numbers of fish and other marine life found here, also some of the largest gorgonians (sea fans) to be found anywhere, sway gently in the current providing a spectacular back drop to the explosion of marine life encountered as you drift along this unique dive site.
