The Huracan Dive Center shares Long Caye with Itza Lodge on Lighthouse Reef, one of the 3 atolls in Belize. Huracan Dive Center caters to those who stay at Itza Lodge or at the Dive Shop B & B and those who are camping on Half Moon Caye.
There are 3 reasons we chose to dive with Huracan:
1. Huracan is the closest dive center to the Blue Hole. The Blue Hole is a dive of 140’ so you get 10 minutes to descend and 3 minutes at 140’… a 10ish minute boat ride compared to 2 hours from the mainland is a big plus if you want to remember the dive and not the journey to the dive…imagine if there is weather the day you go.
2. The Dive Masters, the boat's Captain and their crew are top of the line…in safety, efficiency, helpfulness, experience. Our Dive Masters were Jerome and Anna, both with stellar skills and experience. The dive boat Captain, Mr. Reeves, is safe and knowledgeable, careful, considerate, capable, experienced...of the many dive boat Captains we have known over the years, Mr. Reeves is the best. The crew is super organized and professional even fitting in other groups from private live aboards. We arrived the week after Hurican had outfitted a group of 50 people from California who stayed at Itza Lodge. Huracan made sure each were equipped with proper gear…the goal of the 50 was to dive and meditate in the Blue Hole every day.
3. Diving and Snorkeling the Atoll is pristine as it is the furthest away from the mainland. There are 2 Cayes on Lighthouse Atoll: Half Moon Caye is small, has the only Red Footed Boobies Sanctuary and great dive spots; Long Caye has the newly built Itza Lodge along with Huracan Dive Center and B & B a few yards walk from each other…there is great snorkeling just walking off the shore. Long Caye is so close to each dive spot that the boat returns to the lodge between dives. Hurican usually has 3 dives per day…one which can be a night dive.
Itza can lodge large groups and has a wonderful open dining area and bar with hammocks all set up around the perimeter. My husband and I stayed at Itza for privacy and quiet. Huracan has a few rooms as a B & B in the Dive Center where the staff also stays. There is a small kitchen and they offer delicious meals.
When we arrived, we were the only ones at Itza and we dove with another couple who stayed at Hurican..so, just the 4 of us. Check out Huracan's Facebook for photos.
