This is our most open itinerary. The following description of a typical sea kayak trip will vary according to the group's wishes and the weather.
[For those doing the Full Week trip but starting Tuesday, simply substitute Tuesday for Day 1, Wednesday for Day 2, etc.] Arrive at Belize International Airport. Taxi to the Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel for 5:30 p.m. orientation, dinner, and lodging. Our guide will wait for everyone before starting the orientation, and attendance this evening is required. If arriving a day or more early, consult our Belize page for Belize City hotels and activities or our Other Things to Do in Belize page for multi-day excursions in other parts of the country. View from the Swing Bridge in downtown Belize City is at left.
After a group breakfast we walk to our private dock two blocks from the hotel. From here we travel 3 hours to Long Caye (65 miles), crossing the Belize Barrier Reef south of Tobacco Caye. To read more about our private boat, please visit the Glover's Reef Additional Information page. At right, dolphins seen on our way out to the atoll.
Arriving on the island, we unload the boat together and begin our tour of your new home for the week! Lunch is waiting for us, and after you move into your cabana. After settling in we meet for snorkel orientation, and then snorkel right off shore. From now on everyone can snorkel as much as they like, as long as they have a buddy to join them. Group snorkel excursions are also scheduled throughout the week. Visit our snorkeling page for more underwater images and a list of creatures we often see. You can also find a map of our Belize snorkeling sites on the same page.

This morning we conduct the Belize sea kayak orientation, which starts off as an introduction on the beach, followed by a practice session in the water. Our expert guides cover paddle strokes, entering and exiting the kayak while in the water, and rescue techniques. After lunch, one guide takes a group paddling to a nearby patch reef to snorkel from the kayaks, while another guide offers windsurfing instruction.

Certified divers may also begin diving, and fishermen can fish anytime. In fact, we pay for your fishing license so you can begin fishing right away. At left you can see our fishing kayaks, we have the only fishing kayak fleet in the country of Belize!
Scuba diving classes! The first Discover Scuba/Resort course is offered this morning for beginning divers. This course allows non-divers to learn to scuba dive and continue to dive for the remainder of the week. Others enjoy a morning paddle. Both windsurfing lessons and the kayak surfing orientation are offered in the afternoon. You may join one or both, then continue to practice these sports with or without a guide for the rest of the week. We have a near-constant breeze and a perfect set of waves breaking just off our shore. Our surf boards provide great action for experienced board surfers.

After checking into the Biltmore, guests are on their own for dinner.
