1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?
Ownership of land and resort by current owners took place on October 9th 1991. That same year the resort operations began running successfully by its new owners, while with previous ownership M19901 was operated as a research facility. The company has transitioned M19901 from a research facility to a full service upscale hideaway and water sport resort, with other expansions such as the only airstrip on the turneffe atoll. Prior to acquiring blackbird resort, the Feinstein group also owned and operated Manta resort, another dive/snorkel resort on the well-developed atoll of glover's reef in Belize. For them, opening another dive resort situated on another one of Belize's atolls was their next step and goal for successfully expanding the tourism industry.
2. What is your company's mission?
Our mission is to provide world class tourist related products such as diving, snorkeling, and kayaking for vacations and tourist destinations in the Caribbean. To offer more affordable dive, snorkel, and kayak packages and also more accessible than our competitors. Belize is a destination for the diver, the bird watcher, the adventurer and the nature lover. Belize boasts the second largest barrier reef in the world, which is the largest unbroken and interrupted only by some of the world's most beautiful islands such as Blackbird. We would like for tourist to experience this all for themselves at M19901.
3. What does your company specialize in?
We specialize in Scuba Diving. Diving the Turneffe Atoll is legendary with vertical walls just beyond the coral reef in front of the resort. These dramatic walls extend for miles in both directions giving the diver unlimited opportunity to experience large tube sponges, giant basket sponges, purple sea fans, curious reef fish, huge schools of jewfish, permit, snapper, and jack and endless varieties of tropical fish. We also specialize in snorkeling where the guest has unlimited access to the reef only a few dozen yards from the M19901 pier. Fishing the waters of Turneffe also has spectacular results. The combination of lagoon, reef and deep sea offers fishermen an unusually wide variety of sport fishing. Kayaking is free to guests and we also offer kayak expeditions for experienced kayakers. Bird watching is available for the nature lovers. M19901 has 27 species of birds to observe. M19901 is also ideal for special individual or group retreats.
