Dive Shop Blue Hole Eagle Ray Mayan Ruin Nurse Shark Eco Divers Dolphins Tubing Sunrise

Ecologic Divers

This is our brand new dive shop rebuilt in the Fall of 2016 after Hurricane Earl destroyed our old shop.  We are still in the same place, on the north end of Barrier Reef Drive just south of the Phoenix Resort.  Yes, we are now open for business.  Please come visit us!

Great Blue Hole

The Great Blue Hole is a large submarine sinkhole off the coast of Belize.  It lies near the center of the Lighthouse Reef, a small atoll 36 miles from Ambergris Caye.  The hole is circular in shape, 984 ft across and 407 feet deep.  We dive the Blue Hole to a depth of 130 feet where we explore the stalactites.

Mayan Ruins

Mayan ruins and archaeological sites are found throughout Belize.   The Xunantunich site is located 80 miles west of Belize City near the Guatemalan border.  Pictured is the El Castillo temple at Xunantunich, the second tallest structure in Belize.  Let us book your mainland trips and tours.

Spotted Eagle Ray

Spotted eagle rays are commonly sighted in Belize waters, and you will often see them on our dive trips.  If you are snorkeling at the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, be on the lookout for them swimming through the bowl.  They are amazingly beautiful and graceful critters.

Nurse Shark

Nurse sharks seem to always be around on many of our dive trips.  They are, for the most part, harmless.  Ask your Divemaster to dive Esmeralda as these sharks frequent the area.  In contrast to other local dive shops, we do not allow the touching of sharks or any other marine wildlife.

Our Dive Guests

This is a group of our dive guests chillaxing in one of the pools at the Phoenix Resort next door to our dive shop.   The Phoenix Resort was named the best hotel in the world in 2012 by Trip Advisor.  Book a condo at The Phoenix -- it is definitely a first class place to stay on your dive vacation!

Dolphins

You never know when a pod of dolphins is going to show up on one of our dive trips.  It is fun to see them play and interact within the pod, and also with the divers -- they show real personality.

Cave Tubing

Cave tubing is a fun, low stress adventure on the mainland.  The waters in the river are normally shallow, cool and refreshing, and the cave is surprisingly large and long.  Book this trip with us on a day when cruise ships are not in port in order to avoid the maddening crowds.

Sunrise

Sunrise at the start of a beautiful day with our catamarans "Infinity" and "Inpromptu" at anchor near our dive shop.  Ask about live aboard chartering of these beautiful yachts in the cayes of Belize. . .

San Pedro, Ambergris Caye, Belize


Ecologic Divers is located in San Pedro here on the island of Ambergris Caye, 15 miles off the northern coast of Belize.  It is a town of about 12,000 people with the island having a population of around 20,000.  Ambergris Caye is about 25 miles long with its width varying from maybe half a mile to several miles wide.  It is a flat island with sandy beaches lined with palm trees and surrounded by the clear blue waters of the Caribbean -- truly a tropical paradise.

Beach Front People come to San Pedro and Ambergris Caye to enjoy the sea, whether it be diving, snorkeling, fishing, sailing or other water sports.  Belize is renowned as a world class diving destination with diving along the length of the Belize Barrier Reef, and in and around the three atolls off the coast of Belize.  See the "Diving in Belize" photo album on our photos web page for a sample of the wonders you can see when diving the reefs and atolls of Belize.

The town of San Pedro is a particularly interesting place.  Once a quiet fishing village, it is now a bustling tourist town with countless shops, stores, restaurants, bars and resorts.  The waves and surf breaking over the barrier reef, about a mile offshore stretching the length of the island and beyond, keeps the wave action on the sandy beaches to a minimum.  Accommodations here range from backpacker hostels to luxury beach resorts.

Along the beach are many docks and piers jutting out into the calm waters, some as long as 300 feet.  There are often small buildings built on the docks.  Needless to say, boats, especially power boats, are everywhere.  People are often surprised at the size of San Pedro and the proliferation of resorts and homes along its 25 mile shoreline. The turquoise waters near shore are crystalline -- some of the cleanest water we have encountered in the Caribbean.

San Pedro The beaches are lined with beach bars, small restaurants and resorts set among countless palm trees.  Many of the restaurants in San Pedro can be described as "holes in the wall" having only a few tables.  We frequently purchase food from street vendors -- grilled chicken, tamales, doughnuts, hamburgers, hot dogs, burritos, tacos, pastries and meat pies are common fare.  Also the street vendors will hawk goods which include wood carvings (which are simply beautiful), blankets and other cloth goods, and hand made jewelery such as necklaces, bracelets, earrings and other trinkets.

The town is difficult to describe -- eclectic, quaint, and charming are words that come to mind.  The town is old, but very clean -- in short, it has character.  The streets are narrow, and as such, the primary means of transportation is golf carts -- they are everywhere, hundreds of them!  Old time bicycles like we rode as kids where you peddled backward to brake are common -- no bicycles with hand brakes here.  Taxis are ancient Toyota mini vans.  An occasional motorcycle, pickup, or small car will sometimes be seen traveling the streets.  Green John Deere tractors are commonly seen pulling beverage carts to supply bars, restaurants and resorts with beer and soft drinks.  So what is our preferred means of transportation?  We walk pretty much everywhere.

The airport is in the middle of town, and is only big enough to handle single engine propeller driven airplanes.  Tropic Air and Maya Island Air fly into San Pedro almost continuously all day long, and provide a 15 minute flight from the international airport in Belize City.

Impromptu The streets are filled with people at all hours of the day into the evening. Kids are everywhere, especially on weekends where they play in the shallow waters along the beach.  We have always felt safe walking the streets, even at night.  The people of San Pedro are very friendly and always willing to help, an attitude that we rarely found in our travels throughout the Caribbean.  English is the primary language of Belize, and as such, you will rarely encounter anyone with whom you cannot enter into a conversation.  For those of you looking for a place with a lively night life, San Pedro is the place to be.

You will not find name brand stores, hotels and restaurants here, and forget the fast food restaurant chains like in the U.S.  In short, you will see virtually nothing that you will recognize.  This is a good thing, and adds to the unique flavor and character of the town.  A walk in San Pedro can be likened to a walk back in time...
