As part of our 30 Year celebrations at Island Expeditions, we are asking our guests to help share our 30 year story in Belize. If you have traveled with us we would love to hear and see the highlights from your trips to Belize. Just for doing that, we’ll send you an IE T-shirt or hat and you'll also be entered into a draw for a chance to win a free Amazon Kindle E-reader with popular travel eBooks, if you do!
A World Heritage Site is a place that is listed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as of special cultural or physical significance. Let’s take a closer look at the UNESCO designation and its impact on the Belize Barrier Reef System.
The Creation of the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System as a UNESCO World Heritage Site
As we celebrate 30 years, we wanted to take a moment and look back at the three decades we have been in Belize. In 1987, we were one of the first adventure travel companies to develop our unique brand of trips in Belize, that combined education and adventure on the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere.
The Early Days - Exploring the Belize Barrier Reef
Together with Norm Hann Expeditions we created a world-class stand up paddleboard experience in Belize. We are delighted with this special partnership with pioneer Norm Hann Expeditions, one of North America’s leading stand up paddleboard (SUP) instructors in the industry.
