- Previous paddlesports experience is required for the self- guided portion of the itinerary.
Meals: Dinner is not included on this night
You will need a Provision Day to prepare for your paddling adventure. Arrive in Dangriga and check into your hotel before heading over to the Island Expeditions’ Operations Base. Our staff will review with you your route, fit your kayak(s) and set you up with any rental gear you've ordered for the self yourself-guided portion of the trip.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
In the morning depart by water taxi 36 miles offshore to our Adventure Basecamp on Southwest Caye, within the Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve. After settling into your tent cabana, guides provide professional instruction - teaching sea kayaking, snorkeling, and safety in tropical seas before we head out on the water.
Glover’s is one of only four atolls in the Caribbean Sea and the waters are exceptionally clear with over 700 patch reefs and snorkel sites
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner (Breakfast & Lunch only on Day 5)
For our last morning at Glover's Reef the choice is yours; you may choose to don a mask, snorkel, and fins for a final visit to your favorite coral reef, or fly fish on the flats with your most productive Bonefish fly. After lunch a motorboat charter will pick up the group for a return trip to Dangriga. On the charter back from Glover’s Reef, you’ll be dropped off at Tobacco Caye on the Southern Barrier Reef. Your gear, food, water, and kayaks will be awaiting you, and from this point you can begin your own self-guided adventure. You’ll be entirely responsible for planning your route and activities, and making decisions regarding safety. There will be no guides, meals, or lodging provided for this portion of your trip.
Each day, choose how active you wish to be, how far you would like to travel, and which island you wish to camp on. Sea kayak to nearby patch reefs, paddle to a nearby island resort for a cold beverage, or drag a fishing line near a local patch reef to see what bites your hook - the choice is yours.
Before heading to the cayes our staff will review your intended camps, and let you know where the best spots are for fishing and snorkeling in any given area. On your last day, you can either paddle back to Dangriga or pre-arrange for a motorboat charter to take you back to the mainland.
Our Dangriga Operations Base is open daily from 8am to 5pm. We are available by VHF Radio and phone during these hours. The base serves as a place to log itinerary changes, and can provide daily weather reports. You may also call if you require support.
