BLACKBIRD CAYE eco-RESORT
3, 4, and 7 night trips
with transfers on Wednesdays and Saturdays
Want to experience the Caribbean of yesteryear?
No cruise ships, souvenir stands or time-share hawkers... you will relax to the
sound of water lapping on the shore, birds singing in the morning
and wonder why you don't indulge in trips like this more often! You can be as busy as you like or slow down and read a book under a coconut palm.
A resort representative will meet you at the
Belize City airport and escort you to a van for the 20 minute ride
to the dock. Then you will board their fast 50 foot boat for the
ride to Turneffe Atoll. In just over an hour you will leave the
city life and be transported to your tropical island paradise.

available for snorkelers. Snorkeling sites include Blackbird Reef,
located directly in front of the main dock, Blackbird Cut, Calabash
Cut, The Blue Hole, and Halfmoon Caye. All are excellent snorkel
sites at which you will see stingrays, groupers, eagle rays, nurse
sharks and more.
- Kayak adventure packages including morning & afternoon paddles to differnt parts of the atoll with snorkeling, exploration and visiting uninhabited cayes.
- Diving - of course, the world-class diving! The first time you set up your gear is the
last time. The dive professionals at Blackbirds will set up your
gear each morning and change your tanks after each dive. They plan
17 of the best dives around Turneffe and Lighthouse Atolls. While
at Turneffe you will dive sites such as Blackbird Wall, Little Calabash
Wall, Runway and The Elbow. At Lighthouse Atoll, you will dive the
