More adventurous people won’t be satisfied with just snorkeling and for them there will be the opportunity to scuba dive. There are plenty of diving options here and you could spend a few weeks diving this area and still not see half of the things that are worth seeing.
As well as going under the water visitors will also find plenty to do by the water on South Water Caye beach.
