What to Expect
Your adventure will begin once you board your private helicopter at our new Grand Caribe Heliport, Ambergris Caye. This unique flight-seeing ride takes you to see Ambergris Caye and Belize Barrier Reef from the air as few people have seen it. 
Then you'll be ready for your 65-80 minute scenic helicopter tour over the Great Hole Hole and Belize Barrier Reef, which will begin with a bird's-eye view of Belize Barrier Reef System and soon after the magnificent views of pristine drowned cays followed by the kaleidoscope of colors that make up the second-largest Barrier Reef in the world.
Watch waves crest over the astounding coral reef and be on the lookout for the many marine creatures that live among it. Dolphins, sharks, stingrays, manatees, and crocodiles all have been spotted in the reef waters. Next up, you'll spot the spectacular Turneffe Atoll. This cluster of about 200 different cays, or islands, is roughly 30 miles (48 km) long by 10 miles (16 km) wide and features a brilliant Central Lagoon.
 As you fly further over the open sea, Lighthouse Reef will come into view. Imbedded in this atoll is the famous Blue Hole a spectacular dark blue circle formed by a collapsed cavern in the sea floor. At 1,000 feet (300 meters) across and 460 feet (140 meters) deep, it is the largest of its kind in the world. Both a Belize National Monument and a listed -UNESCO World Heritage site, the Blue Hole is an eye-popping natural wonder. You'll hover over it for an unbeatable aerial view of its extraordinary span and color.
Your flight will continue north of Lighthouse reef atoll, overflying Northern Two Caye.
After touching down at the heliport, you can take amazing pictures of your helicopter.
