Turneffe Reef Atoll is the largest atoll in Belize, about 30 miles long and 10 miles wide. Unlike the other atolls in Belize that are a collection of sandy cayes, Turneffe Atoll is made up of a series of mangrove islands, lagoons, and inlets covered in lush tropical vegetation. The healthy mangrove and lagoon habitats provide a pivotal nursery for a variety of species including fish, lobster, conch, and even saltwater crocodiles. There is no doubt that there is plenty to see while diving Turneffe Reef Atoll!
From shallow flats to shipwrecks and reef drop-offs, the multitude of dive sites on Turneffe provides something for every level of diver. One of the more popular dive sites, “The Elbow” is a dramatic reef drop-off featuring schools of jacks, groupers, and snappers with visibility at about 100 feet.
This 3-tank dive trip is the most northeast of the three atolls. This dive can be done with either a beginners or advanced certification, depending on the depth.
