On Arrival in Belize  

The Belize International Airport (Phillip Goldson International Airport—airport code BZE) is small and easy to navigate. You will disembark your plane directly onto the airport tarmac and will be directed to the terminal building and Immigration.  After your passport is stamped, you collect your bags and move through the customs area.  The whole process can take up to an hour, but is usually much quicker than that.  After completing your check-in, porters are standing in clear view and are ready to assist you with your bags if you wish.  Please be aware the porters are not employed by the Airport Authority, they can be pushy and they charge $1US for each bag - you are not obligated to use their services.

Rendezvous with Boat Charter  

We depart Dangriga early in the morning at approximately 10:00am on Wednesday, by charter boat out past the main Barrier Reef to our remote Basecamp on Southwest Caye, at Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve. It is best you meet us at our Operations Base in Dangriga with your bags sorted by 9:30am at the latest.  The transfer to Glover’s typically takes 1 and 1/2 hours during fair weather conditions and longer during inclement weather conditions.   It is important you check in at our Dangriga, Belize office the day before your trip either in person or by phone to confirm your arrival and rendezvous with our staff in Dangriga - please call 522-3328 upon arrival into Belize.

Return to the Mainland

We depart Glover's Reef Atoll by boat on Sunday in the mid morning and usually arrive back in Dangriga on the mainland at approximately 11:30am.

IMPORTANT NOTE: It is advised that any other travel arrangements you have in and around our departure and arrival schedule for Glover's Reef should have some time flexibility as weather and other factors can cause some delays in the transfers.
