Underground Cave Tubing in Belize
Tubing through Belize's unique underground cave system is the must-do tour in Belize.
Our small group departures can often avoid the massive large bus groups that can add to the wait times and subtract from the enjoyment. After meeting your Belize guide, you will walk to your air-conditioned transportation for the approximate one-hour drive to the Caves Branch River and its winding path through the Mayan Mountains and numerous ancient caves.
After picking up your tube, you will walk down to the adjacent river. This will be the spot where you finish your float. You will start the adventure by wading across the river, holding onto a rope strung across the water. From here, you will set out on a 30-minute walk along a jungle trail over loose gravel. Guests must be in good shape and able to keep up with the guide on this Belize excursion.
At the entrance of the underground cave system, your guide will hand out miner's lamps before you enter the water. You will float along on the gentle current that will take you through the cave system. Intricate crystalline formations line the cave, and the majestic rise and fall of stalagmites and stalactites add to the serene opulence of nature. The float part of the adventure lasts approximately two hours, depending on the current, and brings you back to the starting location of your Belize excursion.
After the float, walk back up to the transportation for the drive to the pier.
Please Note: As the river bottom is rocky, you must wear shoes (sneakers or water shoes) while tubing, and they will get wet. Do not forget a towel and dry shoes for after the tour. Guests with special dietary requirements may need to bring a snack or power bar, as tour duration is five hours. Guests must be a minimum age of 8 years old and 48" in height. Tour times listed are in local time. Depending on the time of the year, this may be up to two hours different than ship time.

My excursion with your company was amazing our tour guide was awesome and his helpers made my experience wonderful I can’t Prayi de them enough thank you for a memorable vacation
This was our first time booking a non-ship excursion, so we were nervous, but as soon as the tour started, we were able to relax and enjoy. The guides were extremely knowledgeable of the area as we journeyed to the forest to tube. Through the forest, we learned all about using nature as medicine, stalactites and stalagmites, saw bats and frogs, and learned about local practices. This tour doesn't make you carry the tubes, one of the guides took our tubes and had them ready to go by the time we got to the river. It was a fun float through the cave-wish it would have lasted longer! The small group was great and the tour guide again was full of knowledge to share as we made our way through the cave. I would do this again in a heartbeat. And, as promised, we got back to the tender with time to spare!

My wife and I had a great time with the help of our excellent guides, Delroy, Mr. Smith and Jose!! Delroy was the commentator for our drive to the caves. Very knowledgeable and informative. Always asking for questions and feedback. Once we got to the river and caves, Mr. Smith and Jose hauled our tubes to the place where we went into the caves and pumped them up for us. We thought that was a very nice touch. The hike through the jungle was really fun. Delroy again was our guide and again knew his stuff about the jungle. We even saw wild Howler monkeys hanging out in the trees!! Floating thru the caves with Jose guiding us was awesome!! We got back and had time for a local ice cold beer and BBQ chicken lunch. There are some small shops for local handcrafted gifts that you can barter for. Great day all around. Thanks. Would love to go back and do all 9 caves with these guys.
If you are going to travel, you really need to take advantage of experiences that are unique. Cave tubing in Belize is totally that unique experience. The ride to the caves is long, but so worth it. The river water is cold, but very refreshing. Going down a tube in caves with stalagmites and stalactites is truly a unique experience and one of Belize’s original gifts.

The bus to the excursion was nice. The guides were great. The walk through the jungle was very cool. It was great to learn about everything. The only issue was on the actual cave tubing it was often hard to hear the guide.
