Dive Belize from the Turneffe Atoll

As civilization disappears, pristine beaches, coral reefs and warm,
clear waters appear. You have arrived at Blackbird Caye Resort.

There is something at Blackbird Caye Resort for everyone. Be as busy as you like, diving, snorkeling, kayaking or slowing down and reading a book among the 166 acres that encompass our resort.

Turneffe Atoll is the closest to the mainland of the three atolls in Belize. Located 15 miles east of Belize City the Turneffe Islands surround the largest atoll. Unlike the outer atolls, Turneffe is unique; it is not a ringlet of sandy islets like Lighthouse Reef and Glover's Atoll, but is instead nearly covered with thick green mangroves and a shallow lagoon.

Turneffe Atoll offers true world class diving -- the visibility often ranges from 100 to 150 feet. The diving sites are considered some of the best in the Western Caribbean. Each day begins with an early breakfast, followed by two single tank morning dives and a single tank afternoon dive.
