Dive Journal: Our last dive in Belize 2000 :-(. Saturday is usually a no-dive day on Northeast Caye, but Breeze is kind enough to take us out because we are on the island one day longer than planned. Because we have been raving about it, Breeze takes us to another site close to the Aquarium.

Visibility is not so good today, compounded by greying skies. We have a nice encounter with another beautiful sea turtle swimming beneath and parallel to us for most of the dive. During our safety stop, we enjoy another school of jacks swimming nearby.

After a week of diving here, we are very comfortable in the water, and the three of us find this dive very satisfying and peaceful. It has been a great return to Glover's Reef!
