This trip is ideal for experienced paddlers wanting the independence of self-guided paddling, with the opportunity to explore and stay on one of Belize’s remote coral atolls.
- Four days at a unique Basecamp on Glover’s Southwater Caye, a remote 13 acre island. Sleep in comfortable tent-walled cabanas and dine on fresh seafood, tropical fruit and local fare.
- Kayak, SUP and snorkel amongst Glover’s tropical islands and 700 patch reefs.
- Five days of self-guided kayak exploration. Includes kayaks, gear and transportation to your start point, as well as assistance and guidance with route and trip planning.
Meals: Dinner is not included on this night
You will need a Provision Day to prepare for your paddling adventure. Arrive in Dangriga and take a short cab ride to your hotel for the night. Check into your room, before heading over to the Island Expeditions’ Operations Base. Our friendly staff will help you prepare for your self-guided trip. They will also offer pointers on shopping for dry goods, and provide you with a vegetable order list for your Wednesday boat run.
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
Depart early morning by charter boat to our Southwest Caye Basecamp on Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve. Upon arrival, you’ll be able to settle into your ocean view tent cabanas before meeting your guides for some professional kayaking and snorkeling instruction.
Due to the isolation from the mainland, the waters are exceptionally clear with a fabulously rich reef system. We spend days exploring the atoll with both single and double kayaks, some of which are rigged for sailing. Glover’s is one of only four atolls in the Caribbean Sea and is home to 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.
