An article I wrote several years ago describes what is what like to visit Moho in the late 1990′s and early into the 21st century;
“One of my other favorite spots in Belize was Moho Caye. It is a simple dive but there is a large coral pinnacle that starts in about 85 – 100 feet and makes it way up to within 20 feet of the surface and there are a large variety of critters to watch for while you circle this pinnacle.
The nice thing about this site is that you can end your dive in fifteen feet of water and still be seeing lots of marine life, like anemones and feathered sea cucumbers.
There are numerous ways to dive Moho Caye. I considered the starting point just off to the left of the small spot of sandy beach you can see in center of the right photo. From there, you could head south towards the pinnacle or north, towards a more sandy bottom and round the tip at the northern-most point. where the reef forms a sort of mini wall… quite steep with an eighty foot maximum bottom depth.
You can see from the photo at right how much shallow area there is surrounding the island. Its hard to pinpoint it from here, but if you were to begin your dive approximately halfway on the top middle side of this photo and swim left, you would find the pinnacle I am referring to. If you really want to find it, I recommend finding a woman named Lloydia in Placencia Village (its not hard. Ask anyone in the center of town) and go with her. She loves this spot.
In March, if you are around visit the east side of the island where the Pelicans roost and build their nest. Its fun to wander the island at that time… you can literally walk up to the nest with albino white baby pelicans squawking away.
I can honestly say that this is one of the nicest dive spots I have ever spent time at. No matter how often I visited, I always enjoyed myself. Yim and I used to take one of the boats out on our off days”
Imagine what they are doing with their sewage now… this Island is small. I could walk across it in fifteen minutes even hacking my way through the very middle of the Island. And of course, the next hurricane that passes through the area will wipe the place out but the Island will never be the same.
