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.
Adventuresome, but not scary. Helpful, knowledgable guides.
wish they would let everyone float on our own, but I understand they have responsibility. but the river is very calm, hope to have more rapids. outside case is pretty. overall the tour is okay, not surprising. bus riding seems long and restful. lunch not included, $10 for lunch.

I was recommended this excursion by a friend and I was not led wrong! Our tour guides made sure that every was ready and comfortable as the bus ride to the cave is about an hour long. They were super informative about Belize and spoke about their history, food, nature among other things. Although this excursion did not come with food included, our tour guides offered to order us food and bring it back to the bus to us for only $10. When we arrived we picked out our tubes and headed up into the hills for about a mile. The scenery was incredible. Once we got to our spot our guide tied our tubes together as he walked/swam with us tied to him. He was cracking jokes and giving great information about the beautiful caves. The ride down the river itself was pretty short, but still the combination was the sights and the great guides it made it all worth while. YOU HAVE TO SEE IT.
Alot of fun, our guide didn't hardly say anything but the view was great.

Just when you didn't think you have a better time then you were already having on a cruise...you go cave tubing! This was the most amazing experience EVER. Our tour guides in the air conditioned van, Tony and Delroy did awesome talking about Belize and the area on the 45 minute drive to the area. We were all educated on their customs, politics and lifestyles. Then we get to the caves and walk with our tubes for about 30 mins. The scenery is so amazing you don't even realize that you have been walking that long. Being in the caves made us all speechless, our teenagers said it was the highlight of the whole vacation! A must for anyone new to Belize! Huge thanks to Tony and Delroy, they literally made the trip a trip to remember for us all!!
