The dive site called Long Caye Ridge one of my favorite dive sites because it offers a huge shallow reef area and a wonderful wall. While exploring the underwater sites of Long Caye Ridge we encountered Cero Mackerel, a Sea Garden of Gorgonians, Colorful Sponges, Deep Water Fans, Tiger, Nassau and Black Groupers, Snappers, Spotted Moray Eel and a huge Green Moray Eel swimming out in the open. It was so nice to stay in one place and really explore what the reef and wall had to offer.

After our time exploring Silver Caves we made way to Turneff Islands and the dive site Sandy Slope. The reef system of our dive site Sandy Slope starts off around 15 feet of water and make a slow slope to deeper waters. The dive site has a Plethora of Hard and Soft Corals, Schooling Fish, Stingrays and Moray Eels.
