Guests with Kayak near Calico Jack's

Guided by your curiosity and powered by your own movements, you can experience the thrill of beholding an entire horizon of setting sun and distant palm trees or a maze of green vines, enormous trees, and wailing wildlife. Kayaking the waterways of Belize may be the best way to experience the natural wonders of the country.

The many rivers and tributaries of Belize offer an enchanting mixture of jungle scenery and peaceful village life to experienced veterans, novice paddlers, or competitive racers. Guided tours, adventure packages, day trips, overnight expeditions, and annual races take advantage of the ceaseless movement of the rivers and are easily accessible.

Kayaking in Placencia

Because of its close proximity with various cayes, Placencia Village in southern Belize has a variety of paddling expeditions that leave right from its white sand beaches. Popular stops from the Village include (but are not limited to) Little Water Caye, Ranguana Caye, Pompion Caye, Buttonwood Caye, Cary Caye, Silk Cayes (also known as Queen Cayes), Sapodilla Cayes, Round Caye, and Moho Caye. Day trips or overnight packages with licensed guides can be organized with tour operators in town.

And if you are a novice at kayaking, use Calico Jack’s complimentary kayaks (for either one person or two) to explore one of the nearby uninhabited islands (we call them “cayes”). We will pack a lunch for you and off you go.
