This Belize kayak trip gives you the comfort of rustic Bedizen lodges along the barrier reef with hot and cold running water and fully serviced bathrooms. Join us for Belize, Caribbean adventure, kayaking from remote island lodge to lodge along the barrier reef. We'll paddle and sail our kayaks along the barrier reef for about 5 to 10 miles a day, leaving us plenty of time to snorkel, fish and enjoy the beautiful warm, crystal waters of these tropical Belize out islands.

We'll explore many different regions of the reef by kayak including the inner and outer walls, patch and fringing reefs, mangrove ranges and protected lagoons. The six day Paradise Islands multi-sport trip is the perfect combination of vacation and adventure in the tropics. As we paddle and sail from cay to cay and lodge to lodge, traveling over 20 miles along the southern Barrier Reef of Belize, the itinerary will stimulate the active person yet still leave us ample time to relax and enjoy island life.

Try world class snorkeling, stay in rustic Bedizen lodges on postcard-perfect tropical cays and explore secluded mangrove islands, or kick back in a hammock while guides prepare delicious meals of seafood, Caribbean vegetables, tropical fruits and fresh baked bread. After five glorious days on the water, we cross back to the mainland returning to the village of Dangriga for an evening of camaraderie and fun, where the beat of skin drums, along with traditional dances and songs bring to life the history of the Garifuna people of Belize.

Accommodation. On the first day we will be spending the night at the Tropical Education Centre in our Forest Cabanas. Our cabanas are situated in a serene pine setting. Sinks, toilets and showers and situated in a separate building in the Forest Cabana complex. The Education Centre harbours Belize's largest collection of tropical animal specimens, a fantastic interpretative centre, and has a great network of trails and wildlife viewing platforms, perfect for exploring the pine savannah setting. While out on the cays we will be kayaking from cay to cay along the southern barrier reef and staying in small Belize owned lodges on the cays.

We stay two nights at each lodge on Tobacco Cay and Southwater Cay. Facilities include hot and cold running water and fully serviced bathrooms. As we are paddling our kayaks to each lodge we stay at we will be carrying our personal equipment and clothe in water tight hatches in the kayaks. We will also provide waterproof bags for your use. On the final night we will be staying in the small seaside community of Hopkins Village. Our accommodations are at a charming beach front Belize-style hotel, where we celebrate our final night of the trip.

Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive at the Belize International Airport where you are met by an Island Expeditions representative and transferred to the Tropical Education Center, adjacent to the Belize Zoo.

Day 2: Waking up to the sounds of the tropics is a pure delight with the chatter of parrots and parakeets flying overhead, the fresh morning air scented with tropical blossoms and the expectation of an exciting adventure filled day ahead. After breakfast we travel the Hummingbird Route through the Maya Mountains to meet up with our motor charter waiting to take us to our first island on the southern Barrier Reef. We’ll introduce you to safety in a tropical marine environment and then begin with teaching the fundamentals of sea kayaking, including safety, group and self rescues and touring techniques.

Enjoy a swim, explore the island shoreline and then after a tasty Belize lunch we begin our journey paddling over top submerged coral reefs, turtle grass beds and through narrow mangrove channels to reach our first nights accommodations. We’ll land our kayaks right in front of our lodge on Tobacco Cay settle into our accommodations and then enjoy drinks and dinner. Overnight: Island Lodge. Includes: (B), (L), (D).

Day 3: Situated right on the barrier reef in the heart of the Southwater Cay Marine Reserve we are ideally positioned to explore the surrounding reefs and cays. Start with a steaming mug of coffee and fresh tropical fruits then enjoy an early morning swim or paddle before breakfast. Our focus for the morning will include snorkeling and scuba diving Tobacco Cay cut and the outer reef walls. In the afternoon we’ll paddle to nearby cays to explore the sheltered lagoons and mangrove channels returning in the evening to Tobacco Cay. Overnight: Island Lodge. Includes: (B), (L), (D).

Day 4: Looking south with our gaze following the line of breaking waves along the barrier reef crest we can see the next island we‘ll be traveling to today – Southwater Cay. After packing our kayaks with our personal gear, wishing fond farewells to our hosts we’ll start our day on the water with an introduction to kayak sailing. From here we’ll paddle and sail our kayaks along one of the most beautiful sections of the entire system. The waters are shallow and clear, and on clear days we’ll see a tremendous variety of marine life.

As we approach Southwater Cay with its coconut palms swaying in the wind, this is a day you’ll wish to go on forever. We’ll land our kayaks on the beach check into our accommodations, enjoy an ice cold drink and explore the island before dinner. Then maybe try a little bone fishing action on a fly rod, or snorkel south water cut. Overnight: Island Lodge. Includes: (B), (L), (D).

For divers we can arrange dives as requested and for those who’d like to try out diving we can arrange discover Scuba courses with prior notice. As we explore by kayak our routes often cross those of the fishermen who make their living from the sea and with this interaction we gain good company and an insight into a way of life that is very different from our own. Overnight: Island Lodge. Includes: (B), (L), (D).

Day 6: Our last day on the cays we pack up and leave Southwater Cay paddling west, away from the barrier reef to another group of beautiful cays.
