Trip Itinerary

Day 1
Accomodation:Glover’s Reef Basecamp
Meals: Lunch, Dinner

We travel by water taxi beyond the main Barrier Reef to our private Basecamp on Southwest Caye within Glover’s Reef Marine Reserve.  We depart from Dangriga at approximately 8am and typically arrive at Southwest Caye before 10am. Guides introduce you to your new environment and you’ll have time to settle into your tent cabana and enjoy a swim before lunch.  After lunch, Norm conducts a flat-water skills workshop followed by an intro from your Belizean guides to snorkeling the coral reefs.  Enjoy an evening paddle around Southwest Caye before dinner.  Our talk this evening focuses on hydration and nutrition for paddling.  

Day 2
Accomodation:Glover's Reef Basecamp
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

With the Caribbean Sea just steps from your tent cabana, why not start your day with an early swim.  Before heading out on the water we begin with a warm-up stretch and movement – then to the water!  Today, our route parallels the inside reef crest, shallow waters that are rich in coral reefs and marine life.  Return to camp for a delicious lunch and chill time before we get back on the water.  In the afternoon we focus on board control in different conditions and downwind techniques.  At some point in the day, either from the boards or the support boat, we have the chance to snorkel among the coral reefs.

Day 3
Accomodation:Glover's Reef Basecamp
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

For those who like to rise early, we have a first-light fishing mission in the skiff where you can try your hand at Belizean style hand-line fishing.  Snapper, barracuda, jacks or grouper can be on the menu.  After our warm-up stretch we’ll have a chance to review the core strokes and board control, then our support boat takes us along the reef crest to the northern section of the atoll where we have a chance for a downwind paddle back to our base on Southwest Caye.  This is a full day on the water with lots of variety of paddling and some great snorkeling.  You’ll come back to base tired and satisfied.  Enjoy a cold beer, relax in a hammock or have a nap before dinner.  Our after dinner session focuses on gear choices, outfitting your SUP and introduces the concept of multi-day SUP trips.

Day 4
Accomodation:n/a
Meals: Breakfast

Early coffee and fruit and then join Norm for a paddle as the sun rises over the Caribbean.  For your last morning on the reef, you may choose to don a mask, snorkel, and fins for a final visit to your favorite coral reef, or enjoy a paddle before our motor charter arrives to transport you back to the mainland.  Arrival back in Dangriga is approximately 1:30 to 2:30 pm.
