Many thanks for your candid review. We have thought of having more lounge chairs at the end of our South Dock but were not sure if it would interfere with those that enjoy catch and release fishing there. We will certainly give it more thought...More

We arrived there on a chartered yacht. We were not booked to stay on the island but enjoyed a fantastic meal - the island takes 12 guests. We moored just off the island

I don't like to be cold at depth regardless of the surface/air temp so I wore a skin with a shorty over (or under!) and was never cold at depth for my 50+ min dives. Have a great time, wonderful property and staff!!

I don't think there is a wheelchair on site - I did not see one, but they may be able to arrange for you to rent one. You can arrange your diving right on Hatchet Caye - there is a dive shop with equipment rental on site.
