Feb 17, 2018 - National Geographic Quest
We saved the best for last! Today we arrived to Half Moon Caye Natural Monument, this is the first marine protected area in Central America and the oldest Belize wildlife protected site since it was first designated as a Bird Sanctuary in 1924. Its designation was for the protection of the red footed booby.
As soon as we got to this paradisiac island we walk along one of the trails that leads to a platform where we could observe the famous red footed boobies nesting and the magnificent frigatebirds displaying their red and big gular pouch. The snorkeling was outstanding and every guest that came out of the water had great stories about all their sightings.
