Marine Conservation Program
Feel the thrill of swimming with a whale shark, the excitement of spearing the invasive lionfish, and the satisfaction in helping protect coral reefs. Reef Conservation International (ReefCI) dive trips are a unique opportunity to protect the reef ecosystem by directly participating in our ongoing marine conservation projects! We are located on a small, private Caribbean island on the Belize Barrier Reef. The diving is incredible and the conservation work we do is meaningful! ReefCI is a non-profit marine conservation organization and has been protecting our oceans for over 13 years. Come join us on the island and make a difference!

WHERE WILL YOU STAY?
Tom Owens Island is a beautiful, idyllic remote private island that is part of the Sapodilla Cayes Marine Reserve of islands, located in the south of Belize.
There is no single supplement which makes us very popular amongst individual travelers.
Tom Owens island situated on the outer reef, is a true 'castaway' coral caye island – accommodation and facilities are rustic with a few home comforts thrown in!
The island is about 1 acre and has a large living area, great views and lots of hammock space. All of our guests upon arrival tell us that the photos do not do the island justice! It really is a perfect Caribbean paradise.
Accommodation is in private waterfront cabanas, all with amazing views overlooking the stunning Caribbean ocean. The individual cabanas are basic but comfortable and have shared or private bathroom facilities. There are also double en-suite rooms available for couples.
