For the really young members of your family, we have babysitters available if you make arrangements ahead of time.
Kids have many activities they can participate in, even scuba diving (Kids ages 8 and 9 may take the Bubblemaker course which has a 6-foot depth limit and takes one-half day. Kids ages 10 and 11 may be able to dive as a regular diver, this age limit is under the discretion of our Dive Instructor. Kids ages 12 and over may get certified to dive, or take the one-half day Discover Scuba course if they wish. Scuba activities are limited based on age).
We love having kids and families on the island. And the kids love being there. However there are certain limitations family need to be aware of before booking family friendly surfing vacations on Long Caye. There is plenty for kids to do right on shore if they are too young to paddle. Kids love exploring the new environment and playing on the beach. However, we do not have guided activities or sport equipment specifically for kids, and each staff member has a full roster of duties on each trip. Our client to guide ratio is between 2 to 1 and 7 to 1, depending on the group size. This does not allow for guides to assist in the supervision that children require. Although Slickrock accepts children at a discount on trips, parents must be fully responsible for all aspects of monitoring their children. Due to safety concerns, we have set supervision procedures that parents are required to follow.
