What to Expect
This exceptional adventure tour takes you to see San Pedro, Ambergris Caye and the Belize Barrier Reef from the air as few people have seen it. Once at the Grand Caribe Heliport you will be given a short safety briefing and board the helicopter. After leaving the heliport, you will fly over the Belize Barrier Reef and be amazed by the beautiful views.

Next your flight takes you into the tranquil Caribbean Sea as you explore south on the Barrier Reef heading toward San Pedro Town.

As your flight takes you south to view the Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Hol Chan is Mayan for "little channel", located off the southern tip of Ambergris Caye and is Belize's oldest marine reserve. 

As your flight continues to head further south you will overfly Shark Ray Alley, a popular snorkeling site where snorkels get to swim with nurse sharks and sting rays. 

On the flight back, you can relax and enjoy the astonishing aerial views of the coastline and Reef as you are soon to land at Grand Caribe Heliport.

Once on the ground you will be able to take pictures of the helicopter with your pilot. 

Adventure departs from Grand Caribe Heliport. Total Flight Time 25 minutes approximately.
