Turneffe Atoll, where the brand-new Belize Dive Haven is located, is southeast of Ambergris Caye and Caye Caulker, off the coast of Belize in Central America, 20 miles from Belize City. It is one of three atolls of the Belize Barrier Reef, besides Glover's Reef and Lighthouse Reef. It is approximately 30 miles long and 10 miles wide, making it the largest coral atoll in Belize and in the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System. The atoll was officially declared a marine reserve on November 22, 2012, and as such makes for amazing scuba diving.

There are few opportunities in a lifetime where you can experience the thrill of sharing the water with a creature as magnificent as the whale. During the months of June and July, divers and snorkelers, may have the opportunity to interact with Dwarf Minke Whales in the warm waters of the Great Barrier Reef.


We spend lots of time exploring the amazing dive sites of the remote Ribbon Reef, with an underlying focus to maximize in-water encounters with the whales.
