Scuba Diving

Belize is one of the world’s top diving destinations and Tranquility Bay Resort’s beach is just 300 feet from the largest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere. We are the only Ambergris Caye dive resort inside the Bacalar Chico Marine Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site so you will dive in pristine waters among schools of fish, turtles, eels, rays and more. Combine this with our world‐class restaurant and exceptional staff – it’s no wonder experienced divers choose Tranquility Bay Resort for their dive headquarters.
