Dive Turneffe Atoll, The Great Blue Hole and More
Our guests are met at the Belize City Philip Goldson International airport by a Blackbird representative for a short drive to the Radisson docks. There the adventure begins with a beautiful 32 mile boat ride crossing the Belize Barrier Reef, entering the protected mangrove lagoon of the Turneffe Atoll and on to the resort. This takes one hour and twenty minutes in our fifty feet transport boat named Bigbird. Blackbird also transports guests via a ten minute chartered plane ride from the municipal airport in Belize City to the Blackbird private airstrip. Charters are done upon request with complimentary pick up and drop off to the airport or any nearby destination within Belize City.
Upon arrival at the resort the guests are greeted by the island managers while being given a brief orientation of the resort. They are then taken to their nearby room accompanied by a Blackbird staff member. There is no reception office or front desk giving way to an informal friendly atmosphere. Fine food is popular with guests at Blackbird where meals are served each day, most of which are prepared Belizean style and served from a central buffet. The dining staff make the most of the unlimited fresh seafood as well as typical Belizean favorites such as stewed chicken with rice and beans.
Dinner is done a-la-carte, Blackbird style. The Beach Bar is quite popular as a convivial gathering spot after a full day’s activities. It is a free-standing thatched design situated near the water’s edge. There is also a second bar inside the main dining used in the evenings after dinner.
