Default Helmet diving in Belize?

Going on my first cruise with family in June. On Carnival Legend.

I can't find any Belize helmet diving. Just Snuba and snorkel. Is there helmet diving available in Belize?

Also, will I save much by booking shore trips on my own, or should I book with Carnival?

Helmet diving , also SEA TREK, inlcudes a "astronaut" type of head gear which rest on the shoulders and covers the full head. Air provided from tubes from surface baot. Lets participates to walk the ocean floor.

We were at Belize last week and I still have the shore excursion list and I didn't see that on the list of excursions to do. maybe by the time you cruise it will be added. Good luck.

I checked a few Belize excursion sites and there is no mention of this type of diving. I wonder if it is because the coral reefs are very delicate and snorkeling is less of an impact. Sea Trek is a lot of walking on the surface which may be harmful. I hear Belize has the best coral reefs so I assume this is the best location to explore underwater.
