DOUBLE ATOLL ADVENTURE

Remote Reef Discovery of Lighthouse and Glover’s Atolls plus the Rainforests of Southern Belize

Trip Features

The Double Atoll Adventure heads out to Lighthouse and Glover’s Reef, two remote atolls offering some of the best snorkeling, paddling and marine exploration in the Caribbean Sea.

 These guys were so very kind as to do this for my husband in the early morning hours and then be back before breakfast and know that they had a whole day full of activities. The cooks then prepared the barracuda for our group for lunch and we were all able to share in the stories! Wonderful memorable experience thanks to these folks! Bravo!
