Travel through white sand cayes and mangrove ranges, through the heart of Turneffe Atoll and past the main Barrier Reef to Lighthouse Reef Atoll at the furthest edge of the Belize Reef System, 60miles offshore of the mainland. On reaching Halfmoon Caye settle into your new island getaway and enjoy your first lunch on the island. Your guides will provide instruction on sea kayaking, snorkeling, and water safety on the sea.
After a healthy Belizean breakfast, gather to plan the day's activities. Venture forth into a world of turquoise waters, solitary beaches, and a remarkable abundance of marine life. Explore the Ermlund, a shipwreck which looms just north of the caye. Wrecked in 1971, the ship remains silently on the reef.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
