The water below is so clear that you can see fish and stingrays, and it is not unusual to see dolphins as you sail. For experienced surfers, there are wave sites and swell access on the outer reef.

Birding

In Belize, you have the opportunity to observe hundreds of different species of birds. Belize has recorded more than 540 species within its borders. Because of the country’s small population and lack of industry, much of Belize has remained virtually undisturbed. On various islands, you will find reserves for birds like the black catbird reserve on Caye Caulker and a bird sanctuary on Man-of-War Caye where you will find pelicans, brown bobbies and frigate birds.

Canoeing/Kayaking

In a country that is abundant with water sources, canoeing and kayaking are a very common and rewarding activity. Whether inland on one of the many river systems, in and around a cave, or out on the open sea near the reef and the cayes, you will have a chance to witness the unspoiled nature of Belize from a different point of view.

Caving
