My boyfriend and traveled to Blackbird Caye Resort in Belize this past August, 2014. We had such a great time and we returned home singing the resort's praise to our friends and family. I have been fortunate enough to travel to many other islands and resorts in the Caribbean Sea and I feel confident saying that Blackbird is one of... More

Just returned from a week stay at this quaint resort. Not only is the location beautiful the staff is amazing. Truly no details left undone, they even supply towels on the dive boat. Visibility was not great for diving but the reefs are absolutely beautiful. Unlike other dive destinations we have been to, we always had the reef all to... More

The closest thing to paradise on Earth. White sand beaches, unreal aqua-blue water, the best snorkeling and scuba diving in the world. Once-in-a-lifetime thing to do. We were there with just a few other couples which was perfect. Mike, the manager there, bent over backwards to make sure folks were comfortable and had a good time. The divemasters, cooks, boat...

Each summer, as part of our National Geographic student expeditions, we bring multiple groups of high school students to scuba dive with the folks at Blackbird Caye resort and we are incredibly impressed with this operation. The staff is professional, safe, knowledgable, encouraging and supportive of our novice divers and above all, friendly. Makes our jobs so much easier when... More

This was my first trip to the Caribian and I am so glad I chose Blackbird Caye Resort. The island is beautiful. The staff are amazing and the food was fantastic. I got so spoiled while I was there. I am not a diver but I did snorkel for the first time. Stuart is a very good guide. He made... More

My husband and I stayed at Blackbird for our 10 year anniversary and dived every day! The views look like they came off of postcards! We also saw a variety of life on the reefs including sharks, turtles, lionfish, eels, rays, and multiple kinds of fish. The trip to the Blue Hole and Half Moon Caye was the highlight for... More

We stayed there last year Aug 2013 and had such a great time! We loved being so close to the dive sites...it was a diver's paradise! We could dive in the morning and fish on the island during our surface interval and be back again on the short boat ride. My husband had a tarpon on while fishing off the... More

There are 3 resorts out at Turneffe atoll and they are all good. But Blackbird is the best. We are scuba divers and found the operation here top notch in terms of staff, equipment and safety. Snorkeling visitors also had an excellent experience, with a boat and guide dedicated to them also. The food was great, and the cabanas are... More

July 19 - 26, 2014. There's very little population pressure on these reefs. And no recent hurricane damage. So, the soft corals, fans and sponges are dense and abundant. Fish more numerous than Bonaire, Cozumel or Bonaire. Viz disappointing on most dives, but not enough to impair my photos. A few sites had some current, but nothing like Cozumel. Dive... More
