Half Moon Cay Wall is one of Belize's most popular dive sites. It is also called' 6,000 feet of vertical abyss' because of the enormous vertical drop-off. The dive site is inhabited by nurse sharks and large rays. Nevertheless, Half Moon Cay Wall is best known for its sand eels. They stick out of the sand to retreat at the slightest sign of danger. Half Moon Cay itself is a beautiful, highly isolated island and one of the oldest protected nature reserves in Belize.

Particulars

Enter the water from the boat. Then dive over the sand ledges and coral fields to the drop-off. The wall is beautifully shaped and is home to a wide variety of species, such as turtles, black tip reef sharks, lemon sharks, bull sharks and various types of rays.

Warnings

Always follow the guidelines of local dive schools or guides when diving here.
