Transportation and Transfers
Getting Here Is Half the Fun!
In order to make the transfers to Blackbird before the sunset you must arrive in Belize City by 2:30PM in the winter and 3:00PM in the summer. Complimentary transfers to/from the resort are on Saturdays and Wednesdays from Belize City. Transfers to the island are between 3:00PM – 4:00PM by boat with a 1 hour and 30 minute boat ride.
Mode of transport will be decided the afternoon prior to your arrival day: our representatives will take you to the appropriate location for your transfer to the resort. If you arrive early in the day, you will be taken to the Radisson Fort George where you can store your bags, relax, have some lunch or explore Belize City.
Check out is at 8:00 AM so we ask that you arrange your departure flights from Belize City any time after 12:30pm. There are no activities on the days of arrival or departure for arriving or departing passengers.
Transfers on any other day beside Wednesday and Saturday can be arranged for an additional cost. Prices for a charter flight start at US $300.00 one-way for two passengers. (This rate is subject to change)
Domestic air service is provided by a number of private operators. Charter flights are easily available at the city’s municipal airstrip. Flight time is 15 minutes to Blackbird Resort and arrangements can be made through our office for a private 3 , 5, 7, 9, or 12 seater aircraft.
Guests taking the private charter flight to the island need to arrive by 4:00PM in order to make it on time or risk having to overnight in Belize City to catch next day’s flight at their own expense.
