Esmeralda Canyon

One of the most beautiful dives off of Ambergris Caye, the Esmeralda Canyons consists of multiple “slot canyon“ like coral reefs making you feel like your swimming up and down rows of bookshelves in a coral library.

You’ll see typical Caribbean life like nurse and reef sharks, possible eagle rays, turtles, stingrays, and lots of fish: snapper, angelfish, grunts, parrot fish, and grouper.
