Lighthouse Reef Details
Arrive at the Belize International Airport prior to 3 pm. You’ll be driven an hour inland to the Bird’s Eye View Lodge within the Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary. Sitting next to the Creole Village of Crooked Tree, the lodge provides superb local guiding for the tens of thousands of birds in the protected wetlands. Dinner tonight is the start of provided meals for the trip.
In the morning, from the lodge hundreds of birds can be seen along the Crooked Tree lagoon. Then a sunrise boat tour on the lagoons provides an up close view of the feeding birds. Later your group will travel by road and then boat 50 miles from the mainland to Lighthouse Reef Atoll and your basecamp on Halfmoon Caye. Here guides provide professional instruction – teaching sea kayaking, snorkeling, and safety in the pristine ocean waters.
Within the Halfmoon Cay Marine Reserve, you’ll spend 4 days experiencing untouched coral reefs, deserted beaches, a rare bird colony, and mind blowing night stars across the horizon. Activities include snorkeling, paddle boarding, sailing kayaks and fishing Belizean style outside of the reserve. Popular destinations include paddling to a shipwreck washed on the reef, snorkeling the ‘Aquarium’ and loosing yourself on the deserted western beaches of Half Moon Caye.
An expedition to the great ’Blue Hole’ made famous by Jacques Cousteau finishes off the week’s adventure. Sail and paddle kayaks to the underwater sinkhole and then snorkel around towering coral formations teaming with fish. This is a highlight among guests.
Breaking up the return trip to camp is a stop to drift snorkel along the undersea Half Moon Wall. The final night at basecamp features tropical drinks, a special dinner and Garifuna drums, dance and songs.
For your last morning at Lighthouse Reef Atoll, the choice is yours. Snorkel your favorite patch reefs, walk the island trails, or swing in a hammock and watch the frigate birds patrol in the sky. After lunch, the last included meal for the trip, a motor charter takes you back to the mainland for a nights stay at the Biltmore Plaza hotel.
