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 me! The staff and dive guides were very professional and patient with my husband as he was getting his diving certification. Service was very good and food always included lots of fruit and choice of 2 entrees per evening. The huts are right on the beach and include air conditioning and are very clean.There is also a pool and bar to relax after diving. It was a wonderful trip and one we will always remember!
