Lighthouse Reef Basecamp on Half Moon Caye
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!
