Adventure Island at Glover’s Reef Belize
First Half – Fri – Wed, $1625 per person
Friday, Day 1: Meet us at the Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel for 5:30 p.m. orientation, dinner, and lodging. Our guide will wait for everyone before starting the orientation.
Saturday, Day 2: After group breakfast walk to our private dock two blocks away. From here we travel two-and-a-half hours by boat to Long Caye (65 miles), crossing the Barrier Reef south of Tobacco Caye. After lunch, move into your cabana, explore the island, and snorkel right off our shore after the orientation.
Sunday, Day 3: Our sea kayak orientation is this morning: we cover paddle strokes, entering and exiting the kayak, 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.
Monday, Day 4: The first Discover Scuba/Resort course is often offered this morning for beginning divers. Others enjoy a morning paddle. Both windsurfing and kayak surfing orientations 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, and our surf boards provide great action for experienced board surfers.
Tuesday, Day 5: Paddle (or wind permitting, kite sail) five miles round-trip to Middle Caye to tour the Marine Research Center, base for visiting marine biologists. You may also choose “island time” and stay on the island. You can sea kayak, snorkel, dive, surf kayak, windsurf, surf, or just relax.
Wednesday, Day 6: One final dive or snorkel to “The Wall”, where the ocean floor drops from 40 to 2,600 feet in under a mile. After lunch we return to Belize City. Our arrival time cannot be predicted since it depends on factors we cannot control. Therefore, guests should not make other plans for Wednesday night. After checking into the Biltmore, guests are on their own for dinner.
Thursday, Day 7: Earliest day to fly home, or continue to other spots in Belize for the rest of your trip.
