“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

Went to Laughing Bird Caye on a kind of windy day. We got there and was disappointed to see garbage throughout the park. Not on the shoreline but throughout the park. You think that the two full time employees that they had staffed there would clean up. I found that the snorkelling was poor. There were tons of the same kind of fish there. Not very interesting. The pelicans were interesting to watch.

“awesome island to snorkel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

great island to relax at and enjoy some snorkeling. Be advised the island is very small (only one hut for caretaker) and doesn't sell anything so bring food and drinks.

“Great destination for a day of snorkeling or diving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

LBC is such a beautiful spot. Every year in April, Splash Dive Center works with SEA to organize the school kids to do a cleanup of the park - and as the SEA rangers do a good job of that in the area where the public can go, SEA opens the north end where the bird rookery is for one day every year for the kids to do a cleanup. The kids have a great time at the caye swimming and hearing about the environment and what their role is in addition to picking up 40 or more BIG bags of garbage - mostly plastic.

“popular haunt for grey pelicans”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

nearest caye, 2 non flushing toilets and bbq area. Coral was mostly dead with limited variety of fish so snorkling was poor. We visited by default as there were strong winds. This resulted in big waves and poor visibility at times. Overall not an enjoyable experience.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

One word: Amazing. You don't need to dive too see the sea life in living colour. It is a long boat ride from Placenia but it is well worth it. It is a perfect way to spend a day.
