Belize Dive & Jungle Adventure

Day 1: Arrival in Belize City     
Get away from it all to remote Turneffe Atoll located 25 miles off the coast of Belize City. Spend your next vacation at Blackbird Caye Resort, nestled between 2 miles of private long sandy white beach and over 4,000 acres of remote jungle. This unique all-inclusive resort has a perfect mix of relaxation, heart-pumping activities and authentic Belizean hospitality. Diving, snorkeling, expedition kayaking, birdwatching, island hikes, beach lounging -- there’s a little bit of something for everyone here. Upon arrival in Belize City, you will be met and transferred to the marina for the 90 minute boat ride out to paradise. Spend 7 nights in a beach cabana. (Wednesday & Saturday arrivals).

Days 2-7: Turneffe Atoll, Blackbird Caye Resort     
Diving the Turneffe Atoll is legendary with vertical walls just beyond the coral reef in front of the Resort. These dramatic walls extend for miles in both directions giving the diver unlimited opportunity to experience large tube sponges, giant basket sponges, purple sea fans, curious reef fish, huge schools of jewfish, permit, snapper and jack and endless varieties of tropical fish. The diving mainly happens around Turneffe Atoll with a side trip on Tuesdays to the famous Blue Hole. Turneffe Atoll is 24 miles long by 8 miles wide, with 210 square miles of area, more than 100 cayes and islets and more than 50 miles of fringing reefs. There are over 70 named dive sites around the atoll, 20 of which are 3 to 35 minutes away from Blackbird’s dock.

Not a diver?  No worries – the snorkeling is superb here as well as kayaking! Snorkelers can hop on the boat twice a day for amazing snorkeling opportunities as well as join the trip out to the Blue Hole. This is a full day trip with a picnic lunch at Half Moon Caye Natural Monument where can you see nurse sharks and myriads of brightly-colored reef fish that highlight the reef. Swim out a little further and you might see turtles, spotted eagle rays, seahorses, squid, and moray eels. If you have always thought about getting certified, Blackbird is the perfect place to do this!
