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.

in December of 2013 my boyfriend and i decided to go to Belize to spend a warm Christmas. we booked an excursion for that day to do thecave tubing and zipline that we have read about. we did our research and booked with explorebelizecave.com. Dennis was very prompt in answering all our emails unlike other companies. Gilbert who happens to be Dennis brother picked us up and took us to the site. it was very crowded that day since they had about four ships that day. Dennis and his team showed us great professionalism and we had a great time floating through the mayan underworld and ziplining over the rainforest canopy. what a blast! i will definitely do this again. its a must do! highly recommended! explorebelizecaves.com guys you will see me again this year.

We booked this excursion through Explorebelizecaves.com for Christmas Day. What a disaster! They obviously overbooked for the day. We were told to meet at Terminal 2 but couldn't find anyone. After being harassed by several locals we found someone with the Belize tourism board and helped us find our guide. They were at Terminal 1. The van ride was very unusual. After about 10 minutes of driving, BJ our drive did a u-turn and headed back to where we had been & found a gas station to fill up. Then we headed to the cave (about 45 min drive). Once we arrived we went to the "Explorebelizecaves" building for our equipment, which wasn't ready, waited a good 30 -45 min. And no - no one carried our tubes like previous posts. One of the other guides, Eric seemed to know what he was doing but our guide must have been hired for the day because it was Christmas & they were so busy, had no clue what he was doing. Needless to say, taking a guided tube ride with very few rapids, we still had major problems and twice had to get out of our tubes because we ran into things or got stuck. Some groups had helmets which would otherwise seem like over kill, but not with our guide, I wished I had one on. Also, no information about anything Belize, or the caves, how to tube, etc. We had to listen to other guides going down the river to learn anything. The family that rode with us in the van only signed up for the cave tubing & lunch. They had to sit and wait for us while we went Zip Lining. I know they weren't too happy!
The next day in Roatan was a perfect day & excursion. We booked through Island Marketing. Talked with a family that did the Zip lining & Cave Tubing with Island Marketing in Belize and they had a perfect day. Moral of the story, The attraction is awesome - just book with a reputable company, Island Marketing.

We were NOT on a Cruise, We were at the hotel in Belize City ~

I thoroughly enjoyed our CAVE Tubbing Tour ~ It's a MUST DO!!!!

Eric & Felipe met us at the restaurant while we were getting breakfast ~
They were awesome ~ This company does provide a nice tour ~
However, We did have to wait quiet a while for the Cruise Ship
passengers that were in our tour, I would have rather slept in a little while longer...
and, if you don't book the ZipLine tour in conjunction with the Cave Tubbing
you are sitting there waiting again... With all of that taken into consideration ~
I'd prolly do it again.... (((If you are on a cruise & you book this on your own, be aware
if you don't get back in time for the last tender, That is ON YOU ~ Not the Cruise Ship)))

I want you to know ~ If you are reading this: There is a 45 Minute Hike ~
on a very uneven, rocky, slippery, UpHill/DownHill, thru a river walk...All while
carrying your inter tube ! If you have just had Hip/Knee *or any other body part* Replacement,
You have a heart condition, PLEASE BE ADVISED!!!!!!
We had all of the above on our tour ~ They were Troopers & They did it, but
not without a bit of help ~

There are several companies that offer this tour: Some are in HUGE GROUPS...
Some are smaller group sizes ~ Most Tours you have to carry your inter tube ...
Some you don't ~ Some have Cadillac inter tubes like our company, while some
companies have the WalMart version of an inter tube... It is better to be in a smaller
group in my humble opinion ~ Felipe was full of so much information of the wildlife &
vegetation ~ To which Termites were better to eat~! (Yes, I ate a Termite) "When in Rome"

The Lunch Buffet was actually Delish~ It was 6.00 with the tour & 10.00 if you didn't purchase in advance~

On a Serious Note: If you are in Belize ....THIS IS A MUST DO!!!

Our family had a blast! Although we were arriving on the Carnival Magic, I booked ahead of time through their website. I paid the $20 deposit through Paypal. We were met right outside of the terminal by Eric. Since we have to take a tender from the ship to land, be sure to get on the first one your ship offers. Our van included our family of four and one other family of four. We drove for about an hour. Eric was very friendly and spoke to us about the culture of Belize. He was very gracious in answering all of our questions. We were one of the first groups to arrive which was great. We beat the other excursions so we didn't have to wait in a line to zip line. Zip lining was so much fun. Then we got our swim shoes on and swim suits for cave tubing. We locked up all of our belongings in the van. Eric was our guide for the tubing part. We did have to walk our tubes which is quite a hike. Luckily, our kids were able to carry their own. We had such a blast, and we would do it again in a hearbeat!

First off we contacted these guys because we were concerned about the age of our group: ages 5 to 70. They assured us everyone could participate and they delivered. We arrived in Belize after some serious rain and could not go cave tubing. Our guide, Eric, was not the normal 'pressure the tourist' person. Cave tubing and zip lining was a previously agreed amount of $87/pp. Since tubing was off we agreed on a $60/pp for zip lining. Honestly, I think we could have very easily gone $45-$50/pp but totally worth every penny in the end. Eric drove us to the zip line. Quiet on the way there. He joined Biron and the two were our guides and catchers while zipping. I would NEVER trust someone with my 5 year old, 175 feet above the rainforest, in a foreign country, unless I was totally convinced he was safe. He was. (My Mother in law? Yeah...) They explain the safety which is 2 separate lines - 5 separate things would have to fail for you to fall. You are safe. Biron got my 70 year old MIL up those trees and down a zip with ease. On the way back it was life changing. We told Eric to stop where HE would have lunch. He stopped at some roadside hut (seriously tarp on sticks with rusted hut plate, hut) and we got rice&beans, chicken, and potato salad. O. M. G. We got beer and munchies at the local shoppe and ate/drank the whole way back. Our week long cruise and this is the highlight of at least 4 of us. Food was incredible, zipping was insane, and hospitality was great.
Don't be fooled. You are going to be shocked when you see the extreme conditions people life in on the way to zip: no roof, no running water, no walls. And when you walk in the store and see eggs out, for sale, in 95 degrees an 99% humidity. It's a different culture. Take it in, eat their food, and enjoy the country. You will not regret it. Best day trip from the cruise ship ever.
