We arrived there on a chartered yacht. We were not booked to stay on the island but enjoyed a fantastic meal - the island takes 12 guests. We moored just off the island

I don't like to be cold at depth regardless of the surface/air temp so I wore a skin with a shorty over (or under!) and was never cold at depth for my 50+ min dives. Have a great time, wonderful property and staff!!

I don't think there is a wheelchair on site - I did not see one, but they may be able to arrange for you to rent one. You can arrange your diving right on Hatchet Caye - there is a dive shop with equipment rental on site.
