Underground Cave Tubing in Belize

Cave Tubing through Belize's unique underground cave system is the must-do excursion 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 excursions 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.

Fun Cave!

The drive was long and in a packed van with several people, but we had a blast. We even had a good jerk chicken meal afterwards on the way back to the boat.

Very cool experience

We loved this tour. Our guide Paul met us inside the port area so it was easy to connect. Tubing through the caves was a very cool experience and we watched the large cruise lines groups exit up some stairs right past the caves while our little group of 6 floated another 30 minutes down the river to a much more convenient exit point. It was so relaxing and we saw a river otter fishing! Be aware that it is a 20-30 minute walk carrying your tube to get to the caves and you have to traverse the river 3 times along the way (each time a little deeper) but you are wearing a life jacket. Good pair of watershoes are a must. Paul took great care of us and stopped at a wonderful local restaurant for lunch just outside the cave site.

Made lifetime memories

I want to start by saying we had an amazing experience. This is the first time that I’ve done an excursion separate from the cruise line so I was apprehensive. I’m so glad I took the chance, it was so worth the chance I took. We had a small group (4) plus our guide so it felt really intimate. After our hike to the launch area for our tubes and flor down the river through the caves we stopped at a local restaurant and picked up a yummy lunch.

Very Fun Excursion!

If you are thinking about cave tubing, book it through here as the wonderful guides take your tubes to the river for you as the other tours were making everyone hike with their own tubes. The guides were fun and full of information. I really enjoyed my day with them. You will get wet as you cross the river while on the short hike but it feels wonderful in the warm weather. The river runs very slow so the guides are there to push you but they tell you everything about the caves as they are swimming next to you. So much fun!!
