It was an eventful week at Splash Dive Center, as we prepared to celebrate PADI Women Dive Day. Quality and Safety has always been a part of all our services; that has changed a bit due Covid-19 as we now include Health with Quality and Safety!

We began the week by disinfecting and preparing the dive center, the shuttle, the equipment and boats. We set strategic sanitation stations, sneeze guards, social distance markers, social distance seating arrangements, and used an infrared thermometer to check guests and crew temperatures.  Splash is full on for adding health to our quality and safety standards.

Time to Visit Nearly Covid-19 free Belize

By |March 12th, 2021|Blog|0 Comments

Belize is down to less than one hundred active covid-19 cases.  It is time to visit nearly COVID-19 free Belize!  Covid-19 has been nearly brought under control by wearing masks, social distancing, washing hands and keeping the bars closed (you can still get a drink in the restaurants).  Vaccinations have now started so we are hoping that the number of active cases will continue to drop. 

Coming to Belize is quite straight forward – key aspects are to download the Belize HEALTH APP and stay at a Gold Standard hotel or accommodation.  Splash Dive Center is a Gold Standard Tour Operator.

I realize Dr Fauci has not weighed in on this but clearly Covid-19 is threatening marine life!  Lionfish are native to coral reefs in the South Pacific and Indian Oceans.  There they have natural predators such as sharks, cornetfish, grouper, large eels, frogfish and other scorpion fish.  In the Caribbean and Gulf of Mexico, the only predators are divers!  We hope that in time, sharks and groupers in this area will start to hunt them to restore the ecological balance. 

Lionfish are an invasive species that were most likely introduced from aquarium releases, aquariums damaged by hurricanes for example.  They are […]
