More Fun !!! More Caves !!! More Freedom !!! Play More !!!
Few activities gives the outdoor enthusiast such a varied array of experience as leisurely paddling a kayak thru this cave system, the serenity and peace of getting lost in the moment, this indescribable feeling that one gets when by sitting onto the kayak, pushing away from the land, dipping your paddle into the water and taking that first stroke, leaving all the cares behind on the banks, float away and be free.
Kayakers can explore
this underworld wonder by using a Kayak, kayaking into the underworld seeing a myriad of formations, chambers, stalactites, stalagmites, columns, waterfall and at the EXIT of the cave, continue downstream for another
10 minutes to arrive at the parking area. for those who want to use tubes instead of kayaks we do offer the belize cavetubing experience.

We did the cave kayaking tour with VIV as we had already done cave tubing on an earlier visit. VIV was the only ones offering kayaking and our teen boys loved it (so did we). We missed getting the first tender (note: be there at least an hour before they say tender tickets are available on the ship, even that may not be enough). Got the second tender which made us 40 min late meeting up with VIV. We weren't the only ones, there were 17 of us from the same ship in our kayak group (6 in our family). I was worried we'd miss the tour but it was fine. As a result we did miss a chance to stop and eat, but we had lots of time for caves, swimming inside one cave, and generally enjoying the river and rainforest walk. Our guides were Elvis and Flava Flave, who were awesome! So fun and energetic! We got a nice history/information tour on our drive to the river entry point, and great nature information along the walk through the rainforest to get to the water. Also their helmets didn't stink!! They were clean and on the bus waiting for us! (we took tiny lysol cans just in case because of our tubing experience with another group 3 yrs ago, but didn't use them). Everything you take on the kayak (which can't be much) must be waterproof. Not kidding. I probably could have handled my big nikon on the cave tubing because it could have been safe in my lap (in a bag), very little movement. The kayaks are a different story. Also we took protein bars and beef jerky (sealed) which helped a lot on the hour bus ride back (do this, just in case). Even with a late start we got back 40 before the last tender, which gave us a little port shopping time. Elvis was really funny, super high energy, and we enjoyed speaking with him casually on the way back. He made sure to help us get pictures at the right times and they both made sure we made it back in time. We want to move to Belize for the winter. It was great!
