My brother and I went down for a few days, mainly to scuba dive. We really wanted to dive the blue hole, but were unsure if we'd be able to do those depths. Paul and the great diving staff dove with us each day in prep for the great blue hole trip. They are an awesome group and made sure we would be ready for the main dive. So glad we went. The diving right off the island was great too, but the lighthouse reef was amazing!
The staff was so friendly, the resort is beautiful and secluded, and the diving was incredible. Paul is unbelievably helpful, the dive masters are great, and the cabanas are very comfortable. We had a lot of fun and made some good friends down there. If you want to have an adventurous and unique vacation, go to BlackBird Caye!
