Belize Sea Kayak Expedition Briefing
The relaxed Caribbean vibes, palm tree-laden islands, serene beaches, abundant wildlife and the lure of the mainland jungle make Belize the perfect destination for a multi-day sea kayaking adventure.
Belize is safeguarded by the impressive Belize Barrier Reef, the second largest in the world. The reef runs the length of the country and offers habitat for many fish species, as well as rays, turtles and manatees amongst the mangroves.
Six days of sea kayaking through crystal-clear turquoise waters, between 5 islands, camping under a star-studded sky and exploring the vibrant culture of the Cayes.
No trip to the hidden gem of Central America is complete without experiencing the rainforest, which is why our first night will be spent at Bocawina Rainforest Resort, with a guided wildlife night hike and early morning birding.
Plenty of time to take it easy, go slow, hang out, chill out, listen to waves crash, read a book and snorkel amongst the corals. You’ll leave feeling so laid back your basically be on the ground!
Adventure, exploration and relaxation are on the menu for Belize. As well as delicious Belizean and Creole food served up in healthy and hearty portions. All taken care of for you, of course.
The sea kayak is the ultimate way to connect with nature. We move in harmony with our surroundings, peacefully paddling from campsite to campsite. The boats will be loaded with everything we need to make the trip as comfortable and tranquil as possible.
The total trip length is 8 days (airport to airport), 6 of which are spent kayaking.
The Belize kayak adventure is suitable for beginner-intermediate kayakers with an adventurous spirit. There are also opportunities for more experienced kayakers to continue paddling after we have set up camp, exploring further and working on their personal kayak skills.
