After a great evening of drumming by the Garifuna Collective last night, our morning started with us moving to Laughing Bird Caye, one of the southernmost parts of Belize and a protected area. Today was our last day of fun with a group of people that have come to feel like friends and family.

Laughing Bird Caye is a protected area, but it is also a tourist site for recreation. Locals visit and bring guests here to learn about the natural beauty of our reef. After a delicious breakfast aboard National Geographic Sea Lion, we went ashore to explore and have fun in the sun on the beach.

During lunch, the ship relocated to another beautiful and protected area, Silk Caye National Park. In this spot, we found pure, natural, and wild beauty. Even before we got in the water, we could see sea turtles, stingrays, and nurse sharks swimming around the area. It was great to observe these sea creatures up close and personal and in their natural habitat. Our guests had the time of their lives today, and we were happy to share our country’s natural wonders.

After exploring the two parks, our day ended on a white sand beach with the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea.
