I'm sure the inner cayes are beautiful for diving too but Glover's was amazing! No tourist boats, quiet, serene natural beauty. We did this in a day trip but I'm sure it's even better if you can dive for days out here. Healthy reef, tons and tons of marine life. Totally worth the effort (and cost) to get here rain... More

It was an interesting ride out in our small boat. Several islands. One research reserve. Completely healthy reef. Unlimited potential to see things. We were the only boat on the entire reef. So quiet and untouched by tourism and people. We spent several hours. Going caye to caye. No way to see the whole place.we were under water for 4... More

This was the most beautiful snorkeling experience ever! Our guide, Ashe, was wonderful. We saw two huge manta rays and got great underwater video of our experience because the dive staff at Hamanasi was so very experienced and supportive!

Three tank, reef wall dive on Glover's run by Hamanasi. Absolutely an amazing experience! Healthy coral, abundant fish, exceptional visibility. Turtles, nurse sharks, huge groupers, eagle rays, moray eels, conch, flounder, lobsters-it could not have better.

This was an amazing dive. I haven't been on that many, but even the seasoned divers said this was great. There were quite a few fish, although I've been places with more fish. I think this dive really stands out in terms of the corals and sponges. I've never seen anything close to this reef for that! Don't get me... More

My guide was patient and helped me love snorkeling! My husband and I both are beginners. I love to swim but not that comfortable in an ocean and our guide was with me every minute I was in the water, showing me all of the beauty in the reef. He spent some time with my husband as well, he doesn't... More

This is hard to get to- which is good, because then it probably won't be trampled by too many people. Wonderful diving!! Few people, lots of fish.

Skip the Blue Hole entirely and head to this spot. Beautiful water and fish and not too far out from the mainland.
