When it comes to Belize Cave Tubing Excursions, there are certainly more than a few available to choose from. Naturally, we have chosen the best and safest of them. Being one of the most popular adventure excursions, everyone wants to go cave tubing when they get to Belize. It is a true discovery of the ancient Underworld of the Maya, a unique place where sacred rituals were once carried out.

Your friendly and helpful tour guide will take you to see the mysterious caves, as you pass through the tropical rainforest and tube down the adventurous river. Please note that the walk to the cave tubing starting point is approximately 25 minutes. These caves are known as the home of many Mayan Gods. The water is refreshing and you won't be able to help yourself from relaxing as you float slowly downstream. Get up close to the astounding cave formations that were formed before man was around. You will go float through 3 caves.

After your excursion, you will have worked up an appetite and you are in luck. A real Belizean lunch and a complimentary Rum Punch are waiting for you at a local family restaurant. We will make sure that you get back to your cruise ship terminal in plenty of time, as we have never had our guests miss the tender.

NOTE: This operator is the first Belizean owned company to have complied with all the new safety requirements instituted by NICH. It offers the latest equipment that complies with international law, including Petzl helmets, Petzl L.E.D lights, life vests, and the latest yellow tubes with cup holders, chain links, and headrests. Smaller tubes are available for kids as well.

There is a minimum height of 40" set by the government to enter the caves regardless of age.

Please check your arrival date and order accordingly on the shopping cart. There is different pricing from high season - November to May. There is different pricing for guests staying at a resort or hotel and need to contact us to book.

5 stars to our tour guides Sharon, Eddie and Carlos. Our group feels they made the trip awesome. It was a tad hot having to wear life jackets and helmets through the rain forest. It was a very long hot walk to get to the tubes, about 30 minutes or longer and you did have to walk over rocks which kinda hurt my feet even in swim shoes.We did not have to carry our tubes except for about 3 minutes right before we got in the water to ride through the caves. All of the tubes we had did have seats in them. There is a creek you have to walk across, since it had rained the night before we arrived there the water was high so it was more like a river waist high. My mother can't swim at all so she was kinda freaking out, but Sharon held on to her life jacket and my brother was in front of mom and there is a rope to hold onto to get across. Mom did great crossing the river. Sharon was awesome with helping her across. Once in the tubes that they had tied together it was smooth sailing. No way at all to flip them over. You will get hot, sweaty, and wet. If it wasn't for Carlos staying at the back of the group with us, my dad may have not made it. He has hip problems and breathing problems sometimes so Carlos hung back with us so we could go slow and the rest of the group went ahead with Sharon and we met at the tubes. The water was so refreshing. Lunch wasn't good at all. Sharon, Eddie and Carlos are AWESOME.

Just got back from a 2 week vacation including Disney and I must say this was the highlight of our trip!! David is hilarious and kept the trip fun and entertaining, Leonardo was full of knowledge and told us so many things about Belize. These people go above and beyond to make your trip enjoyable and relaxing. My son lost his GoPro in one of the caves and David went back into the cave once the trip was done and actually found it for him. The caves were beautiful and the walk getting there was amazing, our guides gave us so much background of the area and we thoroughly enjoyed this excursion, it was the best part of our trip. The lunch afterward was amazing as well. Don't miss this opportunity if you are in Belize!

From start to finish this was so much fun.....Dave and Leonardo were great. Lots of information about Belize as we drove to the start of the could even rent water shoes for the tubing. Great walk through the rainforest I even tasted a termite. Tastes like woody mint haha. The tubing through he caves was fantastic. The food was delicious as well. A great end to a great day. I would highly recommend this tour.

We loved the caving tubing! We had a big group of 16 and had two guides (Jenny and Melvin). It was a 45 minutes drive from port, but they talked the entire time about Belize from economics to agriculture. They were very knowledgeable. When we go to the base camp they were organized and helpful. We didn't have to carry our own tube! If you book with the cruise line you have to carry your own tube. It was a 30 minute walk, but they stop along the way and point you different plant and wildlife. I never felt out of breath. The tubing itself was a blast. I would do it again!

The Most Fun/ Beautiful Experience EVER
     5/5 Visited in April 2015

This excursion was awesome! Jose was the best tour guide I have ever had. He informed us about the country during the drive in the clean brand new van. Also the jungle was breathtaking: The trees, rock formations, the caves and the RIVER! Jose worked hard to guide us through the caves swimming the whole way. LOL. The best part was we got to compare our experience to the other companies offering tours. The inner tubes were better, we didn't have to carry them through the entire jungle and we were fed the most simple, delicious meal of Belizean chicken and rice afterwards. Should I visit Belize again, I'll be sure to book this again.

Great price, lots of fun!!! We had awesome, very informative guides, we didn't have to carry our tubes until the last 10 minutes. We got a longer tubing experience than those who booked through the ships. Loved the lunch break!!! I recommend good soled water shoes, much needed for the hike before tubing. Kind of a long walk, but I loved it. May be too hard for individuals who can't walk too much. Also bring a waterproof camera!!! Definitely would book through this company again!!!

     5/5 Visited in September 2014

Loved it! We had 2 of the greatest guides - Renee & Rogelo. The walk was a little longer than we expected but my brother has had both hips replaced and it was a little much for him. Renee found him a safe comfortable place along the river bank where he could wait for us to come down stream and then they helped him into his tube and we were back on our way. They cared about our safety. We wore life vests, Helmets and head lamps. The tubes had back rests and bottoms so they were very comfy. We didn't have to carry our tubes the entire walk as a lot of the other tour groups did. We only had to carry them a few feet down the path to the launch site. After our group of 8 was all in the water they fastened us together and lead us thru the caves. Renee lead the group and took his time to teach us things about the rainforest along the way. Rogelo played tail to make sure no one strayed. After the tubing was over they took us to a nice Belizian lunch of stewed chicken, beans and rice, coleslaw and a great rum punch. Thank you Renee and Rogelo for such a memorable time!

The experience was exactly what we expected. The river was very refreshing, the activity was extremely relaxing and fun at the same time. It is great for both kids and adults. The guides, Smiley and Nadie were very informative, had excellent sense of humor, kept us on schedule and most importantly kept the group safe. THE RUM PUNCH WAS AMAZING. We definitely recommend this excursion.

Everyone in the group had a good time especially my brother-in-law who was so relaxed he fell asleep in his tube! The tubes have built in head rests and very comfortable.

Our family had a good time but I decided not to bring my 3 year old son even though it said 2 yrs was the minimum age. He stayed onboard the ship. I wish I would have brought him! My other sons loved floating down through the caves.
