Pompion Caye and Laughing Bird Caye

Feb 14, 2018 - National Geographic Quest


At dawn we arrived to our morning destination, Pompion Caye. A lovely island loaded with palm trees was our morning destination. After receiving the safety briefing, our guests went to the get their snorkeling gear and waited patiently to be called. Our morning was full with snorkeling.

While having lunch, National Geographic Quest reposition to our afternoon destination. Very shortly, we arrived to Laughing Bird Caye. This Island is known for laughing gulls that used to nest in the island. The island is also surrounded by a lovely garden of hard and soft corals.

We had a great day visiting these two paradises!
