We did the Glover's Getaway and Kayak Rental Combination for our five year anniversary. The trip more then exceeded our expectations! If go into the trip knowing it is not a luxury resort but a remote adventure then you will not be disappointed. Glover's is nothing short of paradise and the staff of Island Expeditions is amazing. The kayaking and... More

I just returned from the Island Expeditions Paradise Islands tour and everything about it was awesome. From the moment I called the Dangriga office from Houston because of flight delays, I felt safe and taken care of. They made all needed accommodations for me to meet up with my group the following day. The guides, Omar and KMike, were amazing.... More

We did the 2.5 day trip. We were at the Dangriga office at 7:30 am and left shortly after. The food was great, much better than I expected on a small Caye, and they were very considerate of our dietary restrictions, The tents were comfortable with painted plywood floors, real beds, and both interior and exterior window flaps, kerosene lantern....

We did the "Ultimate Adventure" tour with Island Expeditions. It includes: Zoo Tour ($10 extra) - see nocturnal animals at night. Informative and fun. ATM Cave Tour - a fantastic experience both swimming through cold pools of water and learning about the crazy things Mayans did inside this mysterious cave. Sea Kayaking and Snorkelling - beautiful island setting but the... More

We just spent four nights on Glover's Island at the Basecamp. It's not the most luxurious camping we've ever done, but, all in all, a good experience. The guides were helpful, knowledgable and enthusiastic. The food was excellent - something different every day, and the chef took into account my gluten intolerance and made sure I had plenty to eat.... More

The reviews for this are fair and pretty much sum up the experience. I booked the 2night/3day trip and had a great time despite some inclement weather. It is well-organised and the staff both in the office and on site are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Great food; Lady D is a superb cook. My tent had a fantastic view of... More

It's been over a year since we were at Glover's Reef but it has not yet been forgotten. We were looking for a holiday that would incorporate a little physical activity combined with some relaxation for out 10th wedding anniversary celebration. This trip did not disappoint! I think the trip was a fair representation of what was advertised and although... More

An adventure vacation to be sure! Fantastic kayaking, snorkelling and kayak sailing. The staff were very helpful and knowledgeable and the food was very good. A vacation never turns out to be quite what I visualize before going and this one was no different. I didn't imagine that water would be "like gold" so showers were a bit of a... More

My wife and I joined the River of Caves & Glover's Reef 7 day trip in February 2014 with Island Expeditions. We have traveled to other countries before, but this was our first experience with a fully guided and inclusive organization. The communication with Island Expeditions was wonderful as they were able to accommodate us on short notice (2 weeks)... More

My wife and I spent three days here in late January, 2014. We really enjoyed it. It's definitely rustic...don't have any illusions that you will be guaranteed hot water or any luxuries. But if you want pristine waters, fun activities and great company, this is a great spot. The people at Island Expeditions are all positive, energetic and unique. We... More
