When Planning Your Trip...Think of "Day 0"

With Island Expeditions a seven day trip means seven days in the field - not two days of airline travel and five days of vacation

With the exception of our "short trips", on all IE adventures we meet you the day before the trip is scheduled to begin. This is 'Day 0' and has been conceived for your convenience and comfort. 'Day 0' is your day to arrive in Belize before the trip starts, meet your fellow travelers, and acclimatize to your new tropical environment. From there, whether it be by short flight or boat transfer, your transportation to meet up with your group, dinner, and accommodations on 'Day 0' are included in the trip cost.

On the "short trips" we meet you on the day that trip begins at a pre-scheduled time and location coordinated by our sales and reservations office. Whether we meet you at the boat dock or in the lobby of a local hotel at a specific time, our reservation staff will make sure you have our contact information and appropriate rendezvous details.
