My Favorite Site in Belize

In this video , I scuba dived 3 sites Coco Beach House Reef, Love Tunnel and Tackle Box. Out of the 3, Tackle Box and Love Tunnels are my favorite dives. I loved the swim thru’s. Coco Beach House Reef was cool. I had a lot shark interaction there, which was a lot of fun.

During the week, the surge was abnormal and it was difficult to shoot steady footage. I did the best I could under the conditions.

I shot this using a Gopro 4 Silver (1080P, 60fps, -1EV) with a Backscatter Filters and a Sealife video strobe. Edited with FCPX. youtu.be/3MTtbD5S0bI

@bustem55 - This was my second time on Ambergris Caye. While I enjoyed diving with the shop in this video - there are a few things to consider. They have small boats so if there’s slightly rough seas they might not go out. Also, they will send you to their partners (another dive shop) for trips to the Blue Hole or the other day trips. Also, they tend to dive the northern sites.

If I return, I would stay in town and probably dive with Amigos Del Mar - who I dived with on my first trip to Ambergris. I feel the southern sites are slightly better.

Hi Hank, did you ever dive with Whale Sharks in Belize?

@seaturle - Unfortunately, the few time I visited we didn’t have any whale shark encounters.
However, I’ve seen them in Mexico near Isla Mujeres and in La Paz.

How was that experience? When are they in Isla Mujeres? We will be traveling in June.

From seaturtle: How was that experience? When are they in Isla Mujeres? We will be traveling in June.

It’s fun! However, there are a lot of other snorkelers on other boats competing to see the whale sharks.
Be prepare to hop on and off the boat quickly if you want to get close. I can be a bit exhausting.
