  • 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. 
  • Previous paddlesports experience is required for the self- guided portion of the itinerary.

Trip Itinerary

Day 1
Stay: Dangriga Guesthouse
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. 

Day 2
Stay: Glover's Reef Basecamp
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 

Days 3-5
Stay: Glover's Reef Basecamp
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.

Days 5-9
Stay: Camping
Meals: N/A

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.

On the water's edge, with dramatic views over the main reef wall and the open Caribbean Sea, is our dining area, with large raised verandah, lounge and resource library. The enclosed outdoor stoop is where your island guides give their fun and informative talks on the surrounding ecology each morning.

The camp is powered by solar generated electricity with freshwater showers, modern compost toilets and solar powered refrigeration. Guests sleep in comfortable wall-tent cabanas with beds, wooden floors, a night stand, lighting and can be outfitted for singles, doubles and  familiy sizes.

Delicious meals featuring Creole and international cuisine are prepared and served buffet style in our open air dining area by our much beloved cooks.

Expedition Camping on the Sea
Expedition Camping - On the Sea

On the sea we have established camps in remote wilderness settings under a canopy of coconut palms on white coral sand cayes. These spectacular camps give us access to some of the best kayaking and snorkeling destinations along the Southern Belize Barrier Reef.  On our self guided trips, and kayak rentals, we will help you plan your route to access the best areas.  Bring along your expedition camping gear, or rent a full set of gear from our Dangriga office.
