Do you need help with a Belize itinerary? I have just updated our Suggested Belize Itineraries page which details daily activities and approximate out-of-pocket costs for Belize trips from 3 to 16 days in length. Itineraries include visits to our island, birding tours, caving and ruin tours, and combinations of all of these combined to create one long, seamless trip to Belize. Visit our Suggested Belize Itineraries page.
I get this question a lot and I have a standard answer: at the end of the week you will probably fall to the sand and grab me around the ankles and beg to stay. This is the best island you have EVER seen. NO TIME is enough time on Long Caye. Ask Steever Price, who is joining us this season for his 14th trip! Rich Lawson hasn’t missed a winter on the island since his first trip in April of 2006!
There is no end of cool stuff to do. Sure we have guided tours to go sea kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, kitesurfing, windsurfing, kayak surfing, sport fishing, kayak fishing, paddleboarding, and board surfing (not to mention hammock surfing.) But there’s more. Here’s an incomplete list of island activities we pull out of our hats when looking to for other stuff to do:
-Paddling to the other islands in the atoll (from 2.5 miles to 6 miles away)
-Birdwatching with Mario (in April when birds are migrating north we often see 40 different species in a week!)
-Snorkeling to ‘the Wall’ dive site just 100 yards off the island shore
-Paddling north along the reef to snorkel from the kayaks (or just to see the north part of the reef)
-Paddling to the ‘new island’ forming 4 miles north of NE Caye
-Snorkel (swim) all the way to Middle Caye
-Kayak slalom races
-King of the I-Dock (conquering our inflatable dock)
-All About Coconuts, by MJ
-Snorkeling around the island
-Hermit crab races
-Advanced kayak instruction to cover rolling and other kinds of rescues
-Downwind kayak float while snorkeling, then paddle back
-Advanced scuba diving lessons
-Snorkeling outside the reef in much deeper water north of NE Caye if it’s calm
-Reef low tide walks
-Reading from the library; we have over 100 titles about Belize and the surrounding area
-Paddling to patch reefs to snorkel from the kayaks
