Overview
Laughing Bird Caye is a National Park and World Heritage Site. It is a long and narrow island known for its abundance of marine life and corals. The name comes from the gulls that are among the many birds that Inhabit the north end of the caye. Laughing Bird Caye offers excellent snorkeling as would be expected at a national park. On the east side of the island coral mounds separated by sandy patches rise to about 5 feet from the surface. These mounds have a variety of coral types which are home to lobsters, barracuda, lizardfish, angel fish, parrot fish, spotted drums, southern rays and a myriad of reef fish. On the west side your guide will find lobster, barracuda, lizardfish, Nassau grouper, angel fish, furry sea cucumbers, conch and lots and lots of colourful juvenile reef fish.

Thank you for a great review. Our crews want to teach the world about the world about the beauty of Belize and to protect and preserve this special place. We urge our guests to become ambassadors for Belize to support this value and you certainly qualify as an ambassador for Splash and Belize! We hope we will see you down this way again - maybe to learn to dive. You can become a certified diver in 2 or 3 days!
