About Location
Lighthouse Reef Atoll is a popular destination for divers and snorkelers due to its famous Great Blue Hole and Half Moon Caye. The atoll is located off the coast of Belize and is home to a variety of marine life, including towering stalactites, Caribbean reef sharks, barracudas, angelfish, and some of the largest midnight parrot fish in the world.

The Great Blue Hole is a circular sinkhole that is over 1,000 feet deep. It is a popular destination for divers who want to see the amazing marine life that lives in the hole. Half Moon Caye is a small island that is located just off the coast of the Great Blue Hole. 

Intrepid divers will also discover Half Moon Caye in this atoll, known for its swim-through tunnels featuring huge barrel and tube sponges, yellowtail snappers, and eagle rays.
