Atoll Adventure Belize

        a Marine Eco-Adventure

Explore the wonders and the beauty of the Turneffe Atoll.  This is unique marine eco-adventure experience featuring snorkeling, birding or one of several other fun and informative activities. Or, if you are so-inclined, you can stay at the resort and lounge on our beach. Every day offers a great new adventure and a perfect opportunity to relax - that's what our Atoll Adventure is all about.

Atoll Adventurers choose from a variety of daily guided activities led by one of our experienced Atoll Adventure guides (Abel Coe pictured), all of whom are informative and fun. Our 25 foot canopied boat is at your guide's disposal for exploring the reefs, mangroves, creeks and lagoons that make Turneffe the largest and most biologically diverse atoll in the Caribbean. Snorkeling is one activity that you will want to experience with Turneffe's world-class snorkeling featuring warm Caribbean waters, a myriad of tropical reef creatures and incredible coral structures.  Our guides are masters at helping everyone feel comfortable in the water and beginners can learn to snorkel on our sandy shore before visiting the reef. With at least 60 species of birds at Turneffe, birding is another highlight.  You may also want to tour the atoll looking for manatees and dolphins or enjoy an afternoon kayaking. Our Atoll Adventure Program is a very flexible and is tailored to fit the particular interests of each group. 

Turneffe has a fascinating history, including Mayan fishing and trading settlements dating to 400 A.D. Turneffe was also a favored hideout for the notorious pirate, Blackbeard.  For most guests, learning about the history of Turneffe as well as the fascinating history of Belize is one of the more enjoyable parts of their visit.

Our top Atoll Adventure guide, Abelino "Abel" Coe, was born and raised in a Mayan community in Southern Belize and his first language was Maya. Abel is an avid student of Mayan history and he is well-versed Belize's history.   Days with Abel are informative and fun.  He knows the flora and fauna of Turneffe intimately and is very adept and finding all of the interesting things.  Abel is an excellent snorkeler and makes his guests feel comfortable visiting the underwater wonders at Turneffe.
