We also offer other adventures such as the zipline, mayan ruins, Belize zoo etc.Explore Belize Caves makes your cave tubing experience one to remember, taking you through two large caves, trekking through the Mayan Jungle, and offering fantastic one-on-one interaction with your knowledgeable tour guide. With Explore Belize Caves, you can be sure you won't be herded from one place to the next with a large tour group. You'll be in a small group headed by a friendly tour guide who can't wait to help you experience everything! Your trip will be enjoyable from the start, when you meet our guide just outside of terminal one at the cruise port. From there, you'll be taken to the caves in a comfortable air-conditioned van, learning fun facts about Belize on the way! Your tour guide will be with you from the time you leave the port until you return, and will help to make the excursion a memorable one.

Whether cave tubing, walking through the forest or zoo, listen to what's happening around you. you'll hear sounds you don't hear anywhere else. it's awesome. Hopefully you'll get a chance to see a taranula, we saw one on the trail to cavetubing, it was so black and the egg sak so white. where's the camera when you want it quickly. no matter where you travel in Belize don't forget your camera. get a waterproof one if possible. I ziplined outside Tekal and it was awesome, scared of heights and I still did it and would do it again. no oceana to worry about, just your own safety and common sense will get you through the fun times in Belize. Love it there. i visited Belize the last time in 2009 and plan on visiting again soon.

You start your day treking through the jungle for about a half hour. Great guides show you all sorts of interesting things along the way. The cave tubing is a must do in Belize. The water is a bit cold at first but you get used to it quickly. The zip lining is also fun but be prepared to walk up steep steps at each platform. Good exercise for sure...just don't eat a big lunch if doing right after lunch. All in all a really fun time in Belize.

I booked with Explore Belize Caves for a tour during our stopover on NCL. That day the seas were rough, and it took forever to disembark and be tendered to Belize City. (over 2 hours). Dennis and his team were still there, gathering up everyone coming off the ships, determined to help them get there tours in. Yay!

Eric & Gilbert were our guides/drivers out to the site. They were very friendly, and a lot of fun. My rating of 3 stars isn’t for the service from the tour, it’s unfortunately for the things outside the control of Explore Belize Caves. The service and the history/information was great, the rum punch was so fantastic, we asked to stop and refill! We couldn’t have asked for better hospitality from two guys with our group.

I was just disappointed over all. This was our third stop, and our third time we had over an hour ride to our excursion. We zip lined first, before we got all wet from the cave tubing. Disappointing. I have zip lined before in Costa Rica which had much longer runs, and more of them. There were maybe 7 runs here, you can’t photograph or video while you are on them. And they are short. Keep in mind, it’s also a hike up to the top of the runs….what comes down needs a way up. So be prepared to climb some stairs!

There are so many other groups inside the caves with you at the same time, it lacks the luster I was expecting. (3 cruise ships docked that day, so it was packed barely describes it). Our group was awesome, but the screaming and obnoxiousness coming from the other groups I could have lived without. There is a small hike, not bad, at all, to get to the entrance of the cave, so make sure you have good water shoes or sneakers that can get wet. It’s pretty rocky.

There are bathrooms, a changing area, gift shop, and small restaurant (I think). I would have loved to spend a little time walking around, but since NCL so graciously got our day started 2 hours late, we were too concerned with missing our boat, and we scurried back to the yummy rum punch.

Our eldest son talked us into going ziplining and frankly the rest of the family was scared to death. In the end, everyone loved it and had a great time. We would definitely do it again. We didn't schedule the cave tubing as our chicken family didn't like the idea of it being in the dark, but we kind of regretted that when we saw everyone going in the nice cool river with their tubes. If we did it again, we'd do both.

I booked through Dennis at the last minute (2 days before the cruise) on-line and he responded in less than a day and we were all setup. I met him and his colleague Eric outside the cruise terminal easily and Eric was our guide for the day. Eric was wonderful, providing us with a lot of great information on the country as we drove to the ziplining park. On the way back he also made a stop with us at a local supermarket so we could try some of the local favorites like cashew wine and plantain chips. That was a nice perk of having our own private group. He also offered to take us to a local restaurant for lunch, but we didn't think the kids would fare well with that.

I would recommend this excursion group and will definitely use them again if we make it back to Belize.

We booked this excursion after doing research on TripAdisor and we were not disappointed! We met Dennis right outside the cruise Terminal and waited about 10 minutes before getting on the van. Our guide took us on a quick tour of Belize City which was a great added bonus! Once at the caves, we hiked in and floated down the river. It was beautiful. We had the best rafts/tubes by far...they were very comfortable. Then we did the ziplines which were a blast! I had never ziplined before and got the hang of it very quickly. After our adventure we were met at the van with rum punch and had a fun drive back to the cruise terminal. It was a great day and well worth the money spent. My only complaint would be that we didn't spend very much time on the river. The guides were helpful and informative and we enjoyed our day!
