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.

We were very disappointed at first. The manager didn't seem to be expecting us or they were waiting to catch other people to sign up, as we waited for one hour for a guide. (We have pictures). The ladies at the sign in counter made rude remarks and pointed to people as they went by, all the while we were sitting on a bench waiting. Finally our tour guide arrived, just as we were planning on canceling. We were concerned that we would not have enough time as the cave were about an hour out of town. The manager had to pull the guide from another assignment. We decided to go, this was the one excursion we were looking forward to. We arrived at the caves and had a wonderful time.Our guide was very knowledgeable and attentive. It was a wonderful excursion.

Cave tubing was amazing. I would highly recommend good water shoes or tennis shoes that you don’t mind getting wet! It’s a long van ride but it was worth it! I missed the opportunity to order lunch because I was in the back of the van. I would make sure the guide asks everyone about lunch. We were the only ones without meals and it smelled so good!!! I misunderstood the directions

Sadly our tour was canceled due to high water in the river. We received a refund without any problem after advising Shore Excursions the tour was cancaled.

I trust the Costco brand but was uneasy of the hype from Carnival. They warned us repeatedly of getting left behind if tardy to the ship departure time unless we booked through Carnival. The Caribbean people move at their own relaxed pace. We were picked up with others. Our Van broke down at a gas station, we asked why the van wasn't fueled before picking us up but that didn't seem to be a concern to anyone but the ones burning excursion time. The guys zip lining and tubing could not figure out how they would get it all in since a few hours were lost waiting for the a working ride. Eventually we made it walked through a park and rode the inner tubes down river all tied together lead by a guide. My issued head light wasn't very bright. Still it was fun. A good experience overall, and we were back on time as promised. Lesson learned skip excursions and roam around the port there is plenty to see and do there. The excursions seemed too canned but the sights are worth seeing.
