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.

This was a fantastic day. My wife and I and one other couple were the only ones booked at our time. The owner had Jose own guide his suv to take us. Jose was very knowledgeable and a great guide. He drove us for the hour trip explaining the country and answering all our questions in the rain forest. The walk was easy. He then pulled us along a gentle river through a gorgeous cave system. I felt very decadent letting Jose do all the work. The cave and country side were spectacular. Jose made sure we were back on time. I would do this tour again for both the beauty and the friendship shown to us. Well worth the cost. It was a much better value than those offered on board. Safe, fun and exciting.

My two 68-year old girlfriends and I thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. We were driven from the excursion stand to the caves. There they had modern and clean facilities. We were outfitted with helmets with a headlight, then walked for about 30 minutes on a wide path through scenic forest and we waded across two rivers before getting to our destination. There they handed us our tubes, while other groups had to carry their own tubes in. The cave was amazing and the water crystal clear. When we finished, we walked across to another river where the guides dropped in the tubes, and we were given the option of riding back on the tubes to the take-out point or "swimming" back. Most of the group chose to swim (shallow water) which was a very refreshing way to end our excursion. After we got back on the bus, we enjoyed a satisfying lunch prepared by the Mennonites. We had a blast and we all agreed we would do it again.

It was a really fun experience and floating through the dark cave was really cool. Bernard, our tour guide was amazing! We highly recommend him. The one minor thing we wish was different was that the float was longer. We walked for quite a distance and then the float was over quickly. The lunch was great and the bus ride was good and safe.

This was a great excursion. There were many companies offering this activity, but we went with this one for a couple of reasons. One reason was because other excursions had reviews about having to carry dirty tubes to the put in. With this excursion they transported the tubes, which were very clean. Second reason was because there were great reviews about helpful and interesting tour guides, which we had. The day was amazing. The bus we were transported in was super clean and in great condition. We learned interesting facts on our way to the launch area, and this excursion was a longer float then most of the others. We totally enjoyed our day.
