Adventure Island at Glover's Reef Itinerary: Second Half Tue - Sat, $1475 per person
Tuesday, Day 1: Fly into Belize City and taxi to the Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel for a 5:30 p.m. orientation, dinner, and lodging. Hotel and dinner included.
Wednesday, Day 2: After an early group breakfast we walk to our private dock two blocks away (luggage is driven). Our launch is at approximately 8 am. From here we travel 3 hours by boat to Long Caye (65 miles), crossing the Barrier Reef south of Tobacco Caye, arriving about 11-11:30 a.m. After lunch, move into your cabana, explore the island, and snorkel right off our shore after the orientation.
Thursday, 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 this afternoon.
Friday, Day 4: Today we get in more diving, kayaking, snorkeling, or shredding the waves. Other options include paddling 5 miles round-trip to Middle Caye, paddleboarding instruction, night snorkeling, reading from our island library, and kayak fishing. Our Belizean cooks prepare fantastic feasts for us, which we enjoy in between this wide array of activities.
Saturday, Day 5: 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 Saturday night. After checking into the Biltmore, guests are on their own for dinner.
Sunday, Day 6: Earliest day to fly home, or continue to other spots in Belize for the rest of your trip.
