A jewel of white sand cayes encircling Belize's richest Coral Reefs
Your adventure begins with a scenic journey to Lighthouse Atoll, Belize's most pristine marine reserve. For those with limited time or wanting to add a splash of remote tropical island adventure to their vacation, this is the perfect choice.
On our way to Lighthouse we weave our way through channels and picturesque islands within Belize’s Barrier Reef. Then, after crossing the reef wall, we enter a keyhole passage and wind through narrow mangrove-lined channels to reach the eastern Coral Wall of Turneffe Atoll and then continue another 20 miles to the world renowned Lighthouse Reef Atoll and Half Moon Caye. One of only four coral atolls in the Caribbean, Lighthouse is home to the famous Blue Hole. In 1972 Capt. Jacques Cousteau and the intrepid crew of the Calypso explored and filmed this incredible atoll, exposing its amazing underwater diversity to the world for the first time.
In partnership with the Belize Audubon Society, Island Expeditions Co. has established an Adventure Camp within the Half Moon Caye Marine Reserve, opening up for the first time this spectacular wilderness to kayakers, snorkelers, and adventurers.
Very informative, accommodating guides who provided a great experience for the wide range of participants. I am an experienced paddler, and Max's instructions were among the clearest & easy to understand for new kayakers I've ever heard. Mike and Zack were phenomenal snorkel guides & really enhanced the experience by pointing out a variety of flora and fauna that I would have totally missed otherwise.
