Pioneers in Sustainable Tourism

What began as a road trip has evolved into a model of sustainable tourism.

What began as a road trip has evolved into a model of sustainable tourism.

Transformational travel might be the latest buzzword, but we’ve been practitioners, and believers,that experiential travel changes lives, since establishing Island Expeditions in 1987. 

We introduced the modern sea kayak to Belize in 1987, and 20 years later, brought the first stand-up paddleboards to the country’s seldom explored coral reefs and tropical cayes. 

From the beginning we've worked intimately with the local community in Belize, to build lasting relationships. We recruited dive fisherman and bush hunters, with no background in tourism, to work as our guides. 

Named by National Geographic Adventure as one of the Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth, our trips have been acclaimed by Outside Magazine and the Globe and Mail. And just as importantly, 30,000 guests, and counting. Be part of a 30 year tradition of seeking out timeless and unspoiled places. Let Belize and Island Expeditions rekindle your wonder and coax your inner adventurer into the wild.
