Trip Itinerary

Day 1
Stay: 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 10 am and typically arrive at Southwest Caye before noon. 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 flatwater skills workshop followed by an intro from your Belizean guides to snorkeling the coral reefs. Enjoy an evening paddle around Southwest Caye before dinner. 

Day 2
Stay: 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 on the water 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 amongst the coral reefs.

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

For those that 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 work on our strokes and techniques, then our support boat takes us to the northern section of the atoll where we paddle a surf break and then downwind paddle back to our base on Southwest Caye. This is a full day on the water with lots of variety of paddling and challenge. You’ll come back to base tired and satisfied. Enjoy a cold beer, relax in a hammock or have a nap before dinner. 

Day 4
Stay: Glover's Reef Basecamp
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Another awesome day on the water with lots of variety. This is the day everything you’ve been learning comes together – efficient and powerful forward stroke, downwind riding, board stance, confidence riding waves and swells. We’ll paddle to some amazing snorkeling locations and take you to one of the most incredible lunch spots on the planet. For our last evening, it’s time to unwind and take in the Belizean culture with a fun beach BBQ, traditional foods and Garifuna music and dance.

Day 5
Stay: Glover's Reef Basecamp
Meals: Breakfast, Packed Lunch

For your last morning on 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 before a motor charter arrives to transport you back to the mainland. Arrival back in Dangriga is approximately 10:30 to 11:30am where your trip finishes. A picnic lunch is served and our helpful staff will assist you with connecting to the next leg of your journey.

Travel note:  For travelers who will be leaving Belize on Day 5, international connections out of the country require a departure after 3:00pm. To connect with Sunday afternoon departures from Belize a short domestic flight is required from Dangriga to Belize International Airport (BZE).
