Explore the Cayes of Belize on a stand-up paddleboard

5 Fantastic Belize Escapes for People Who Hate Winter

If you stay current on hot recreation trends, you may already know that Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) has become North America’s favorite new aquatic sport. This thrilling adventure isn’t just for surfer dudes with sun-bleached hair! Folks of all ages are learning and loving SUP, so if your bucket list includes learning and mastering this activity, you’ll need an idyllic environment like Belize’s sheltered lagoons and the turquoise waters surrounding the Southern Barrier Reef to accomplish your wish.

Is mastering SUP hard? Not if one is trained by Island Expeditions SUP master Norm Hann (www.normhann.com). His enthusiasm is contagious, but it’s his expertise and great training techniques that impress most of all. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned paddle boarder eager to improve your skills, book the ultimate stand-up adventure with Hann or his personally trained and licensed Belizean guides through Island Expeditions at your earliest convenience.

Does age matter? Not a bit. They’ve taken seniors on SUP adventures and they have the times of their lives. Not up for anything that requires checking your health insurance to make sure accidents are covered? Don’t be silly. Norm Hann and his skilled staff never met a person they couldn’t train to paddle board safely and at any age, so expect to enjoy the ride of a lifetime and return home with stories sure to make friends and work colleagues envious.

Happily, the SUP experience is just one highlight of an Island Expeditions trip that introduces you to Belize’s most spectacular natural sites. Explore the Southwater Caye Marine Reserve, travel to uninhabited islands, majestic reefs (including the United Nations-designated World Heritage site, Belize’s Barrier Reef), and meet so many marine creatures in and about the places you visit, you’ll know how Jacques Cousteau felt every time he donned a scuba mask!

Will you be required to stay wet for your entire adventure? No way. Spend every night of your vacation tucked into a comfy bed at a variety of family-run lodges where you can opt to sleep in the hammock on your deck if that sweet island air is so delicious, sleeping inside isn’t an option!

Island luxury is the order of the day at each lodging where amenities include everything from nicely appointed bathrooms to meals that feature fresh seafood, local dishes and all of the sunsets you wish to photograph. You’ll also be given opportunities to take private tours of the Tropical Education Center and Belize Zoo in return for a modest donation to these popular learning centers.

How is it possible to stuff this much fun into just six days? At Island Expeditions, they’re masters of the art of scheduling, and their decades of experience have garnered so many relationships with Belize hospitality resources, every stop you make has been carefully vetted for the ultimate in comfort. Certified and licensed Belizean guides assigned exclusively to your party for the duration of your visit guarantee the personalized service for which Island Expeditions is known.

One note of warning: Kids have been known to become so enraptured by this tour that they actually stop complaining about trying new foods and activities, and they have it on good authority that they don’t mind sitting down to meals with family members to talk nonstop about the great trip you booked. Take photos. You’ll want to keep your Island Expeditions Southwater Caye SUP holiday in your heart and memory for years to come.
