Comments [Blackbird Caye is 1 1/2 hour boat trip off the mainland. There are 15-16 small bungalows that are very comfortable. The newer units are larger with much better bathrooms and showers otherwise the units are very similar. The food is excellent and plentiful. Happy Hour is a great time with snacks and drinks. The week we were there they were having guest speakers come in and give short talks on the conservation efforts Belize was taking. The Diving was very good. The corals seem to be in excellent condition. We didn't see any Bleaching. All the diving was drift dives fairly close to the resort. Tuesday was Blue Hole Day. Having dived it several times before, I wasn't too excited about the Blue Hole but afterwards you get to dive Half Moon Caye and Long Caye which are great dives with a lot of very Curious Reef Sharks. Entry to Belize is very easy . All you have to do is show a Vaccination Card for entry. There is a testing facility in the airport to be tested before returning to the US takes about 30 minutes.
