Belize Adventure Package Parameters

Grade:
Vigorous, participants should be able to perform two continuous hours of moderate exercise without becoming overly fatigued.

Age Limits:
Min.-10*; max.-70; no exceptions permitted to age limits (see below)

Weight Limits:
Sometimes prospective guests ask if we have boats that can hold a person of 240 lbs, for example. This is difficult to answer because sometimes a heavy person is very fit and sometimes they are not fit at all, and this does make a huge difference. In general, persons over 200 lbs will not be able to do every sport we offer, unless they are young and very active already. Here are our best estimates for weight limits for each sport: river kayaks: 225 lbs; sea kayaks: 225 lbs; surf kayaks: 200 lbs; windsurfing: 225 lbs; fishing kayaks: 225 lbs; kitesurfing: 210 lbs, surfing: 200 lbs.

Height Limits
Our gear does not extend to accommodate every single height. We do have 2 sea kayaks for "tall men", but they do not work for very tall people. We asked Sam Sturman, our tallest guest ever, to write about his experience on the island; here is his explanation of how our program works for very tall people:

"I attended the adventure island trip on February 8, 2013. It was an amazing week. What is unique about my experience is my height: 6’ 9” and weight 235 lbs. and a 36 inch inseam. I wasn’t able to fit into a sea kayak because you have to sit in the seat and then put your legs in and my legs wouldn’t fold up that much. I was able to use one of Slickrock's fishing kayaks and that worked fine for paddling and going off on snorkeling adventures. I wasn’t able to do surf kayaking because my legs were too long for the kayak and my bent knees interfered with my ability to paddle. I tried using a ‘Versa Board’ that looks much like a paddleboard, but I as unable to ride the waves. I did paddle out and watched the wave surfers. If you are over 6’ 4” you are going to have to understand that your height might be a factor in certain activities.

I went to the island to snorkel, paddleboard, and sea kayak and my expectations were met. In spite of the limitations of my height, the Adventure Island trip was one of the best experiences I have ever had. I plan on returning."

Adventure Island at Glover's Reef, February 2013

Group Size:
Min.-4; max.-12

Deposit:
$450/person, payment of deposit implies acceptance of our Reservations and Cancellations policy.

Small Trip Surcharge:
All trips have a minimum requirement of 4 adult guests; however, we will run a trip for two to three adults for a surcharge of $300/person. When you sign up for a trip, please be aware you will be charged this additional fee if fewer than four adults sign up. We will bill you two weeks prior to departure for this additional fee if it applies.

The reason for the small trip surcharge on Belize Adventure Week is that we don't break even on this package until we reach four guests. During the inland portion of this itinerary we are driving hundreds of miles in a 15-passenger van. With gas at $6/gallon in Belize (June 2013 rate) and staff costs the same regardless of how many are on the trip, we run this trip at a loss for 2 or 3, even with the surcharge.

------------------

*Children ages 10 and 11 may not be able to participate in all activities. It is at the discretion of the guide, based on safety reasons, to assess the child’s physical capabilities for each activity. If the guide decides that it is unsafe for the child to participate, a parent will either have to sit the activity out with the child, or hire a babysitter at a cost to the parent of $25 US/day. This assessment can only take place after the guide has met the child and also is weather-dependent (high water due to rain can drastically alter the difficulty level of our activities.)

Batfish, our boat that takes us out to Glover's Reef, Belize

The Boat Ride

Transfer to and from the island is one of the most crucial aspects of any island resort. We own our boat, and we take care of the maintenance and repair. Our boat is kept in excellent shape by our competent staff. After all, we are riding on this boat all of the time ourselves. The importance of this aspect of the operation cannot be over-emphasized. There is no additional charge for this ride, it's part of the all-inclusive package.

 

Long Caye is 35 miles offshore and 65 miles from Belize City. Our boat leaves each Wednesday and takes about 3 hours; 45 minutes of this ride is an open sea crossing between the Belize Barrier Reef and Glover’s Reef. View our map of Belize, Central America to see our route; we cross the Barrier Reef at Tobacco Caye.

 

Our boat is 41 feet in length and covered for protection in any kind of weather. It is common to experience rough seas over this stretch, with large swells and spray. We hire professional captains who have spent their careers handling boats in all conditions, and we are confident in the safety of our passengers. Yet some guests, while safe, may feel concerned if they are not accustomed to traveling on the open sea, and those susceptible to seasickness should take precautions. Be assured that we do monitor weather conditions and safety, and our captain may decide to cancel the boat trip if conditions are deemed dangerous. When this happens, (and it does) we provide other activities. Contact us with questions about what water sports gear to bring
