We just got back from our cruise and we went on the X-Treme Cave Tubing Tour in Belize through Island Marketing. The Cave Tubing was an excellent experience, the company providing the tour was not. While the guides were awesome and worked their tails off to make our tubing experience great, there were some definite shortcomings with this company. The most glaring and the most important issue was they did not provide any helmets. I didn't even notice this at first but when we got to the river where we were going to put our tubes in, there were two other tour companies also waiting their turn to enter the river. Everyone had helmets on except our tour. 15 minutes later I realized how important helmets are. Deep into the cave when we hit somewhat fast moving water, we came so close to running into the cave wall that we yelled for our son to watch his head, missing the wall by mere inches. The cave lanterns they provided for us were so poor we couldn't see a thing. The other tours had very bright lights on their headgear and were enjoying the sights of the cave. The life preservers we had were very musty and stinky and rudimentary. Other tours had the back and front flotation squares. After the tubing experience we ate our provided lunch and that was actually very good. They also served some fresh local fruit which was also delicious . So in summary, we loved our guides, really, really nice and knowledgeable and fun but I would not reccommend the company they work for. Overall, it was a lot of fun. It was a long walk carrying our tubes, but the rainforest was beautiful and you spend at least 35 to 40 minutes or more tubing in the cave which was cool. It's worth the long bus ride and long walk. It's a good tour for all ages, we are in our 50's and our son and his friends are 20. They all had a great time, although It does require a healthy person with some stamina.
