Great day of snorkeling off of Laughing Bird. Saw lots of different fish and corals. Our guide was Arthur Wespy from Captain Jak's. Great guide and very knowable about the park.

We stopped here during a dive trip. While there, we had lunch. This Island is a spot of sand in the middle of the ocean. There were some cool fish that you could see when you snorkel around. Other than stopping while on a trip,...More

We enjoyed our visit. Our boat crew took us snorkeling here, and cooked us a nice barbeque lunch. The island has hammocks and lounge chairs, a restroom, and a small gift shop. The only downside was walking out to the snorkeling area was very hard...More

The water was beautiful, the company that provided our food prepared a fantastic meal! We stopped to swim while on our way to the caye and saw turtles and other sea life.

I took a 1l2 day snorkeling trip to Laughing Bird. Although it was windy/waves, we were able to go to the other side of the caye for a beautiful snorkeling day.
