Day 1: Flight from Houston to Belize and transfer to Blackbird Caye Resort. Welcome drinks, registration and orientation. Includes: (D).
Day 2: Morning and afternoon visits to protected shallow reefs. Including visit to Blue Hole, Half Moon Caye and a night snorkel opportunity. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 3: T There are also a number of excellent shallow, protected patch reef areas within a short boat ride of the resort. In addition to the substantial coral heads, we typically view squadrons of reef squid, schools of snappers, inquisitive gray angelfish, and the massive southern stingray which can be up to five feet wide. For our group, the resort promises to reserve a boat to exclusively serve our snorkeling needs. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 4: Our program concludes with a small taste of the Belizean mainland where we have the opportunity to visit the internationally respected Belize Zoo. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 5: This program will be enjoyed by all snorkelers, from novice to expert. Joel will gladly provide any needed snorkeling instruction, from floating to freediving. Whenever possible we will seek out protected water for our snorkeling excursions, but at times the surface may be a bit choppy due to wind. Any hiking will be easy to moderate on well-marked trails. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 6: Belize's climate is mild, subtropical, with cooling Caribbean breezes. The average temperature of 79 degrees Fahrenheit varies little throughout the year. The rainy season extends from July to January, and the remainder of the year is usually very dry. We have chosen a time that should give us suitable weather conditions, but please note that storms over North America can affect Belize and other areas of the Caribbean. And as with any tropical destination, there will always be a chance of rain, mosquitoes, and sand flies. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 7: Although conceptually distant from the mainland, geographically it's only about one hour by covered launch from Belize City. The resort spreads out along a palm-lined sandy beach, and has a sturdy wooden pier used for boarding the boats. The location is ideal because it offers a variety of snorkeling opportunities easily accessible from the resort. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 8: After breakfast, transfer to Belize City by boat. Morning visit to the Baboon Sanctuary. Afternoon a visit to the Belize Zoo. In the evening, farewell drinks and dinner. Includes: (B), (L), (D).
Day 9: After breakfast, transfer to the airport for the return group flight Belize-Houston. Includes: (B).
If the single person is willing to share a room, and we are able to match him/her with a roommate, the single supplement (US$650) does not have to be paid.
