Belize, the little jewel known for its lush rainforest, numerous islands, as well as the unique adventure tours, is listed as one of the top vacation destination by several local and international publications. Hatchet Caye, a Belize private island resort located just east of Placencia village offers a variety of exciting Belize Adventure Tours that are sure to leave you in awe. Our unique location, close to the Belize barrier reef, makes diving and fishing trips easily accessible, exclusive and the most amazing in the country.
At Hatchet Caye you are only minutes away from some of the best diving and snorkeling sites in Belize. With over 10 well-known diving sites around Placencia and Hatchet Caye, such as Gladden Spit & Silk Caye Marine Reserve, guests have a variety of options for exploring the mysterious underworld. There is also the option for night snorkeling right off the resort pier where the lights at the end of the pier attracts all kinds of marine life, such as a variety of fish, rays and turtles. Between the months of April and June, Belize diving gets even more exciting as Whale Sharks usually migrate into the Gladden area. These gentle giants travel to the Gladden Spit Silk Cayes Marine Reserve to mate and feed on the spawn. The Whale Shark tour however is only offered when there are reported sighting in the area.
Hatchet Caye also offers a rare treat to snorkelers – spear-fishing lion fish! These invasive lion fish are hazardous to our reef and it is not against the law to fish for them. We provide tridents for anyone who wants to spear-fish lion fish, and we can cook up a tasty meal from your catch at our restaurant - the Lionfish Grill!
Our fishing tours include fly fishing and deep-sea fishing, some of which can be done right around the island, or you can tour out to the reef and enjoy great fishing in the Gladden Spit.
Along with our Belize adventure tours is our latest addition – The Wild Orchid Catamaran tour. Guests can enjoy a full day cruising around the Placencia Cayes on a luxurious 46ft power catamaran.
