Huracan Diving on Long Caye in the Lighthouse Reef the Caribbean Sea


During the past 8 years that we have made extensive foreign diving holidays, Huracan Diving is the first diving center where all involved divers are explained in advance about general safety during diving, the location of the oxygen cylinder and first aid kit, the need for sufficient water to drink, use of safety channel 16 and radio, emergency evacuation plan, etc. In all other countries that we visited before, we were always briefed by the dive master separately when we informed behind the safety provisions on our own initiative. It is then apparently believed that you make the other divers afraid if you ask too much about the available safety equipment. For commercial reasons, basic safety for many holiday divers is therefore not taken into account, although according to the different dive federations, this is a must. The diving center Huracan Diving is fortunately an exception. Safety first!

The speed boat Mulac from Huracan Diving is comfortable for diving. For safety reasons, the speedboat has 2 outboard engines, so that in case of breakdown, you can still sail on one engine. In terms of speed, the Mulac sails 32 knots, so you still get a decent speed and there is very little chance of seasickness. Because of the location of Huracan Diving and their fast speedboat, the dive sites on Lighthouse Reef are easily reached within 10 minutes. Huracan Diving takes a maximum of 12 divers. We are only with 5 divers (dive instructor included) and 3 snorkelers (attendant included), so we have a lot of space to store our material and to change clothes. The snorkelers are dropped in a shallower place after the divers and are subsequently picked up by the boat. This gives snorkellers and divers the best conditions of what Lighthouse Reef has to offer. The speedboat can be reached via a sandy road and wooden jetty that is about 100 meters long. You can often spot several birds such as hunting pelicans and herons.

The accommodation of Huracan Diving includes 4 double rooms each with a large bathroom and toilet. The building is completely built in hard Belizian wood and there are screens for all windows to keep out pests. If there are too many mosquitoes or sand flies, the area is fumigated. Above the bed there is a fan and per room you also have a standing copy (which you hardly need in December). The outside veranda, where also is eaten, is open and also completely surrounded by insect screens so that insects have virtually no chance to enter. When it is necessary and certainly in the eve and several spirals (kind of incense sticks) are lit to ban vermin. Huracan Diving is also an ecologically responsible resort. There is collection and filtering of rainwater that is drinkable without any problem. For the toilets, Canadian eco-toilets are used that use practically no water, which still wash everything away and are odor-free. Afterwards, a combination of bacteria and wood flakes makes the necessary work to naturally convert everything into odorless compost. The electricity is generated via solar panels. On heavily cloudy days these solar panels provide too little electricity and this shortage is compensated with a small generator. This generator is only used during the day and in the evening to replenish the batteries and to bridge the night, so that no one has night noise. Everywhere, low-energy light bulbs are used, except for a few halogens. Waste is sorted completely by type. In other words, Huracan Diving is very ecologically oriented!
