There’s also a fresh water pool to plunge into. With more than 70 dive sites less than a mile away from the island, divers and snorkelers will be amazed at the beautiful array of marine life. Grab a kayak to explore the lagoons surrounding the island. Turneffe is an excellent jumping off point for the world famous Blue Hole, and the Elbow.

Diving!

Dive into the Blue with 6 Dive Masters to take great care of you, 32 Dive Sites to explore and 15 Dives per week! From the Sayonara Wreck to the Elbow, we boast unrivaled accessibility to Belize’s most lucrative dives. Venture to Jacques Cousteau depths and cave dive 130 feet deep inside the infamous Great Blue Hole where stalactites and sharks await.

Venture into the abyss of the Blue Hole! Whether you dive or snorkel, Turneffe’s day trip to the legendary Great Blue Hole is a must-experience. Descend to depths that drain the water of its color, where a gravesite of giant stalactites is the main attraction and the unnerving shapes of sharks emerge from watery voids.

Snorkeling!

Grab your mask & fins and join the guided snorkel trips to over 25 sites! Swim with schools of fish, gargantuan turtles and rays with two guided snorkeling excursions every day – all within minutes of your guestroom by boat. Spend your days where shades of sapphire and turquoise collide in the Caribbean Sea’s shallows.

The Spa!

With two resident massage therapists, you can indulge in a daily massage, sink your heels into a pedicure or relieve yourself of the sun with a locally-sourced seaweed wrap. Overlook the Caribbean Sea, listen to the waves and the tinkering of steel drums, and escape to the spa.

Wherever you’re traveling from, Belize City is the gateway to your island escape. The majority of guests arrive via Belize City’s Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport (BZE) via a 2.5-hour direct flight from the Houston International Airport (IAH) or William P. Hobby Airport (HOU) in Houston, Texas.

A representative be waiting to greet you outside the airport with a personalized sign and drive you to the marina. Your bags will be stowed in the boat until we cast off at 3:00 pm (every Wednesday and Saturday). The boat takes approximately 1-1/2 hours to the island. 

We can coordinate helicopter transfers for guests seeking a heightened mode of transport. With three routes to choose from, the helicopter is an efficient transfer and site-seeing tour of the Belize Barrier Reef, all in one. Feel the breeze on your face and take in the Caribbean Sea’s sapphire depths and azure shallows. Ask us about our helicopter transfers when you reserve your stay.
