Lighthouse Getaway

A five day remote safari-style Basecamp adventure exploring
the rich coral reefs and white sand cayes of Lighthouse Atoll


Trip Features

The Lighthouse Getaway allows you to explore and stay on remote Lighthouse Reef Atoll, a Belize national treasure.

Lighthouse is a tropical marine park and designated world heritage site located fifty-five miles off the shore of the Belize mainland and only accessible by boat charter. Spend four nights at our unique, all-inclusive Adventure Basecamp on Half Moon Caye - a National Monument managed by the Belize Audubon Society. This trip is well suited for families and couples of mixed abilities, offering a choice of guided activities on the reef and the flexibility for traveling companions to do things together or separately.

  • Explore this pristine coral atoll, renowned for its abundant and diverse marine life and unparalleled sea kayaking, snorkeling and Stand Up Paddleboarding. 
  • Enjoy five days of luxury Basecamp living - sleep in comfortable, waterfront tent-walled cabanas; enjoy fresh, family-style meals; choose from daily guided reef activities. 
  • Snorkel the Blue Hole - an underwater cave and sinkhole in the middle of Lighthouse lagoon made famous by legendary explorer Jacques Cousteau. 
  • Visit Half Moon Caye’s red-footed booby colony - a protected nesting site and home to 4000 birds.

Overall it was a fantastic experience! It was such a pleasure to spend time with like-minded travelers. It was equally fun to get to know your excellent staff. They work very hard, make a genuine effort to make everyone happy, and do it in a natural and relaxed way.
