Beachcombing at Blackbird Beachcombing at Blackbird Barb O'Block

Blackbird Caye Resort is one of Belize's best-established offshore dive and snorkel resorts, located on a gorgeous 167-acre island on Turneffe Atoll.  Leave the crowd behind - with only 18 air-conditioned cabañas, you will be assured of privacy and relaxation. All cabañas feature water-facing front porches, where you can relax with a cool drink after a long day of diving, snorkeling, kayaking or beachcombing.

Our resort staff will meet you at the Belize International Airport, where you will take a short ride to our dock. There you will board our fast, comfortable boat for making the 32-mile trip to Blackbird Caye Resort. En route, enjoy complimentary sodas and Belikin beer as the boat travels past coconut palm-studded islands, to the great Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world. The short hour and a half trip is both exciting and scenic. When you arrive, toss the shoes, dig your toes in the sand, meet our friendly staff and learn about what you can do during your stay.

There is something at Blackbird Caye Resort for everyone: scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, and more. You can be active or lazy!  Swim, snorkel, dive - or just hang out in a hammock with a good book.  It's your vacation.

You'll wonder why you don't indulge in trips like this more often!

Manta-scenes0011_000Diving & Snorkeling
Blackbird Caye Resort offers true world class diving. The diving sites are considered some of the best in the Western Caribbean. Turneffe Atoll is the only Caribbean Atoll made up of dozens of mangrove islands which are the juvenile nurseries for coral reefs. It also means many schools of fish. There are 70+ dive sites located near the caye with an average time of 12 minutes to reach them. If you sign up for the diving package, you'll get three dives per day of superb diving.

Where there's good diving, there's often good snorkeling and Blackbird is no exception. You can just swim offshore from your cabana or take the two (included in the snorkel package) guided snorkel trips per day to outstanding patch reefs just minutes away from the resort.
