Exploring Turneffe Atoll by Kayak
Kayaking adventures are available in many parts of Belize, but Turneffe Atoll’s protected, shallow waters in particular lend themselves well to being explored by this method. Both novice and advanced kayakers will enjoy seeing the biodiversity of this portion of the reef system. Twenty-five species of birds are found just on Blackbird Caye, abundant coral gardens can be seen from above the water, dolphins are easily spotted because they come to feed and rest within the atoll and mangrove creeks provide ample places to seek out other creatures via kayak. Double kayaks are most common, with single being available by request on a limited basis. Choose to stay at Blackbird Caye Resort and all arrangements can be made directly through the resort as a package or à la carte, for which prices begin at $40.
