Ten Reasons To Go To Blackbird Caye

Aquatic Adventures will be hosting a trip to Blackbird Caye Resort in Belize from October 21-28, 2017. Having visited Blackbird Caye on four separate occasions, I put together “ten reasons” why you should consider going to Blackbird. Here they are.

1. If doing the Great Blue Hole is on your bucket list, Blackbird Caye puts you about as close as you can get at only about 80 minutes away. The boat from Blackbird leaves at the usual time (instead of at dawn from San Pedro) and puts you in the water at the Great Blue Hole just after the boats from other resorts are leaving.

My goal was to determine if they would be hosting any training classes. They suggested I contact Dr. Mark Holley at Northwestern Michigan College. After accessing the college website, I discovered the Nautical Archaeology Society (NAS) program hosted by the school as a part of their college curriculum.

The Nautical Archaeology Society’s principal aim is to “promote the preservation of the nautical heritage for the benefit of current and future generations”. One of several ways the NAS accomplishes that is through the NAS training program which was established in 1968. The training program is made up of these four courses:
