  • Snorkel at Laughing Bird Caye Marine Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Discover an abundance of exotic marine life, such as colorful fish, sea turtles, sharks, and rays

Laughing Bird Caye is one of the most beautiful national parks in Belize, named after the species of laughing gulls that used this island as a nesting site. Although the island may be small, the surrounding waters make this area one of the top scuba diving destinations in the country, thanks to the crystal clarity of the water and the incredible diversity of marine life. Spend a day sailing to and around this UNESCO World Heritage Site on this premium trip. Meet your group at the Placencia Pier and board one of the two luxury sailing catamarans. Be greeted by the enthusiastic crew and get a brief introduction to the vessel and safety equipment before being served freshly baked donuts and your choice of mimosa, beer, wine, rum, vodka, piña colada, mojito or soft drink. The bar is open all day! From Placencia, sail for around 2 hours to Laughing Bird Caye and drop anchor once there. The crew will shuttle you and your bags ashore for a quick briefing and introduction to the island. After the briefing, you will be taken on a guided snorkel of the fabulous Laughing Bird coral reef, home to huge schools of colorful fish, dolphins, sea turtles, sharks, rays, and manatees. Once you've worked up an appetite snorkeling, the crew will prepare a delicious lobster or shrimp BBQ with chicken, ceviche, parsley buttered potatoes, and Greek salad. After lunch, go snorkeling again or simply relax and chill on the beach. The tranquil sail back is downwind all the way and, if you're lucky, the resident dolphins will visit. The crew are at your service and will cater to your every need from start to finish.
