Scuba Diving / Snorkeling Adventures

Do you want to dive and snorkel with everyone else, or would you rather experience pristine dive sites off the beaten path?

Private dive charters with our liveaboard the Legacy allow you the freedom to choose.

Your Legacy Dive Charter

Legacy is the largest private charter sailing catamaran available in Belize and is ideally outfitted to making the most of your vacation time on the water, while diving or not.

Costs for accommodation, meals, drinks, scuba diving equipment use, etc. are all included in your charter price; no extra rental fees, no tank refill fees. Experience everything you wish without having to worry about adding to your vacation costs.

  • Legacy's 65 foot length ensures plenty of room for everyone to spread out and enjoy their space — no stepping around and over each other or stashes of equipment or "stuff".
  • The aft deck is dedicated to diving and water sports with ample storage for dive gear and easy water access from two 5 foot wide stern stairways and our 12 foot wide dive platform, which lowers to the water.
  • Onboard scuba compressor ensures your tanks are always full and fresh water rinse tanks help maintain equipment.
  • No need to hassle with arrangements or the extra costs for transport to/from dive sites and losing dive time.
  • In addition, we are pleased to include an unexpected benefit many of our guests love... our own on-board masseuse.

Dive Itineraries

No need to share your itinerary or dive destinations with other guests on a larger boat... this is your time.

Each charter is custom tailored to include the diving destinations of your dreams. Together you and the crew will plan your itinerary based on your interests, experience level, and subject to current conditions.

Legacy specializes in remote, unspoiled dive sites. We can also visit the popular sites as well – you choose. Several popular dive sites include Half Moon Caye Wall and the Blue Hole at Lighthouse Reef, Hol Chan Marine Park, and the Elbow at Turneffe.

Our Diving crew will take care of all your diving needs and offer a wealth of knowledge of the area and sea creatures. Our dive master has a super keen eye for pointing out even the smallest of creatures.

Dives Per Day

A 6 night/7 day trip on Legacy offers five (5) days full of possibilities for diving and snorkeling, and perhaps up to two (2) more dives depending upon your arrival and return flight schedule.

The number of dives per day for your charter depends on the size of your group. Six divers can go on up to four (4) dives per day, 12 divers up to three (3) dives per day, and group sizes in-between can go on 3-4 per day depending on the size of the group and how much they want to dive. Want to fit in a dive before breakfast? Not a problem.

Available Equipment

We are pleased to offer the following gear available on board for your use: wet suits, fins, masks, snorkels, BCD's, weights, regulators, tanks.

If you are concerned about comfort and familiarity with equipment (particularly regulator, mask and fins), have your own gear and are able to bring it with you, we recommend you do so (storage space will not be an issue).

Remember to bring your C-Card or proof of certification with you.

Also, dive insurance is highly recommended when diving abroad; we recommend DAN (Divers Alert Network). Contact 800-446-2671 or DiversAlertNetwork.org for details. If you live in Europe you'll want the European site DanEurope.org.

Activities for Non-Divers

There are plenty of activities for non-divers in your group as well. No one needs to be left out of the fun.

While others in your group are diving, visit beautiful nearby cays and mangrove systems home to manatee and a tremendous variety of birds, beach comb, bird watch, swim, snorkel, kayak, and go fishing or just relax and unwind on Legacy's large forward trampoline and sip cool tropical drinks. Use of related water sport equipment is included in the price of your charter.

Bring your binoculars and camera; you'll have the time of your life.
