Good news from our friends at the excellent Turtle Inn in Belize.
This September they hope to take delivery of a brand new Pro 42-foot dive boat which will make access to the reef even quicker and more comfortable.
Just a reminder - this is the reef where marine biologists now know exactly when, why and where whale sharks turn up each year.
This lucky Original Traveller did one dive last April and saw eight sharks!
Turtle Inn are also now involved with Alexandra Cousteau (granddaughter of Jacques) in her ongoing Blue Legacy project. She will be in Belize to study the reef (the second longest in the world) and the ecological dangers facing it.
