Day 1: Arrive Halfmoon Caye

Meet your guide in the lobby of the Belize Biltmore Plaza in Belize City and transfer to the sea to board a motor charter which takes you through white sand cayes and mangrove ranges. Pass the main Barrier Reef and continue to Lighthouse Reef Atoll, at the furthest edge of the Belize Reef System. 60 miles offshore mainland Belize, reach Halfmoon Caye. Get familiarized with your new island getaway and settle in to your accommodations. Enjoy a late lunch and an afternoon snorkel or kayak around Halfmoon Caye.

Day 2-4: Activites on Lighthouse Reef Atoll

  • Campsite
  • 3 Breakfasts, 3 Lunches, 3 Dinners
Due to its isolation from the mainland, the waters of Lighthouse Reef Atoll are exceptionally clear with inspiring scenery and a fabulously rich reef system which offers some of the best kayaking, snorkeling, and diving in the Caribbean. To begin, the guides provide instruction; teaching the fundamentals of sea kayaking, snorkeling, and safety in the tropics.

Over the next several days, explore the area. Visit the Ermlund, a shipwreck that looms just north of the caye, which wrecked in 1971. This 4000 ton wreck sits silently as a landmark, and is one of many shipwrecks in the area that serve as constant reminders of the hazards of navigating these waters. Another day, visit the renowned Great Blue Hole with a motor supported kayak sailing excursion. Take the chance to learn from your guides about the marine reef ecology and the island’s mangrove habitat which spreads over the park’s 45 acres. Many species of birds nest on the island, including a 4,000 strong red-footed booby colony for which the Audubon Society has built a series of viewing platforms to intimately observe the many nesting sites. Alternatively, there is always time to rest in a hammock and read a good book.

Day 5: Depart Lighthouse Reef

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
The choice of activity is yours on your last morning at Lighthouse Reef. Don a mask, snorkel, and fins for a visit to a favorite patch of reef, enjoy walking the island trails, take a last visit to the red footed booby colony, or comb along the beaches before the motor charter arrives to pick you up for your return boat trip back to the mainland. Transfer to the Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel, where you can enjoy a fresh shower and a swim in the pool, before transferring to the airport for your onward travels.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
