No modern conveniences, no schedules, no problems. Our island is perched on a ring of coral, surrounded by the open sea but protected from the pounding surf. By day we paddle kayaks to snorkel or visit other islands. By night we feast on fresh seafood. It may sound like a dream but you too can share this tropical paradise. Belize is famous for its' coral, and the reefs at Glover's Atoll are recognized as the least spoiled in our hemisphere. Glover's status as a National Marine Reserve promises to protect its integrity and pristine nature. The beauty of this area is difficult to describe.
We spare no effort to ensure that our tour is the best sea kayak trip in Belize. In addition to the luxury of a secluded, private island, our equipment is top-notch: we have a fleet of sea kayaks, surf kayaks, paddleboards, surfboards, and windsurf gear for all ability levels. Our facilities are both rustic and comfortable, featuring thatch-roofed cabanas perched above the waves. Our guides are carefully selected from the most experienced professionals in the business. Our menu specializes in seafood and local fruits and vegetables. By joining us at this exclusive location you compromise neither your comfort nor the adventure of living on an undeveloped island.
Day 1, Friday: Arrive at Belize International Airport and taxi to the Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel for 5:30 p.m. orientation, dinner, and lodging. Our guide will wait for everyone before starting the orientation, and attendance this evening is required.
Day 2, Saturday: After a group breakfast we walk to our private dock two blocks away. From here we travel 2.5 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.
Day 3, Sunday: 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.
Day 4, Monday: 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. Our surf boards provide great action for experienced board surfers.
Day 5, Tuesday: Paddle 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. With a buddy you can sea kayak, snorkel, surf kayak, windsurf, surf, or just relax. Kite boarders can also use the equipment they brought with them at any time.

On Tuesday Second Half guests fly to Belize City and taxi to the Belize Biltmore Plaza Hotel for a 5:30 p.m. orientation, dinner, and lodging. These guests are meeting our Belize Adventure Week guide and group on Day 4 of their trip.
Day 6, Wednesday: Full Week and First Half guests: Begin with a kayak rolling lesson followed by a snorkel around the island. First Half guests depart just after lunch, arriving in Belize City by 3 - 4 p.m. (Lodging on the mainland this evening is not included on the First Half itinerary, see page 8.) Full Week guests stay on to experience kayak fishing, one-on-one paddle stroke clinics, paddleboarding, or kayaking to The Channel to snorkel. Second Half guests: After breakfast we take our private boat to Long Caye, arriving just in time for lunch. After getting settled into cabanas we snorkel the coral reef just off our shore.
Day 7, Thursday: Full Week guests: After an early morning surf session we paddle outside the reef to snorkel at a unique channel-and-groove site. After lunch we take a low tide walk off the eastern shore to find a myriad of starfish, sea urchins, and octopus. Second Half guests: We start with sea kayak orientation, see the description on Day 3. After lunch, all groups become one with the Glover’s and Adventure Week guides leading non-stop activities. Windsurfing, paddleboarding, and kayak surfing orientations are given for any guests who still need them.
Day 8, Friday: Our final full day is always the best. Get in more diving, snorkeling, or shredding. Other options include paddling 12 miles round-trip to Southwest Caye, night snorkeling, full-moon paddling, and beginners can learn kiteboarding basics on our new trainer kites. Our Belizean cooks prepare fantastic feasts for us, which we enjoy in between this wide array of activities.
Day 9, Saturday: 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, and our last night’s lodging and meal is included in the trip price. After checking into the Biltmore, we enjoy dinner at our favorite restaurant.
Day 10, Sunday: Earliest day to fly home.
