What to Bring for Glovers Reef & River of Caves


When traveling to Belize it is best to travel with one larger check-in bag and one carry-on bag.  We recommend a medium duffle bag and a medium day pack as a carry-on.  These bags are easy to move around, can be toted easily, fit in boats, small planes, and van/bus roof racks.  Backpacks can work too; do try to avoid large suitcases.  While on tour with Island Expeditions, our staff will instruct you on how to prepare for travel between locations and we will provide storage for extra bags in our Dangriga office when necessary.  Most airlines have reduced the weight maximums for each bag to 50 pounds.  Be sure to check with your airline for weight restrictions and carry-on allowances.  When packing your carry-on try to include what you would need to be comfortable in Belize your first few days in case your checked baggage is misrouted by the airline.

It is recommended you have one small waterproof bag for your documents, camera, etc., that you can carry in the cockpit of your kayak and have handy on motorboat trips.  It is especially important that electronic equipment such as digital cameras, video cameras, etc. is fully waterproofed, especially on the boat ride to and from the atoll.  For the motor charter to Glover’s Reef we recommend you pack your clothing in garbage bags INSIDE your duffle bag/packsack/suitcase since the boat ride out to Glover’s can be wet.  Our luggage is stored in a water resistant area in the boat but it is not 100% waterproof and thus we recommend this extra waterproofing precaution for your luggage.

NO NEED TO CARRY ALL YOUR LUGGAGE OUT TO GLOVER’S: Please leave at our Operations Base in Dangriga one bag with a change of clothes and other items you will not need with you while at Glover’s Reef.  As we load from our vehicle on to the boat on Tuesday morning you can leave your stay-behind bag with your guide and it will be stored in a locked storage area.  Once you come off the reef this bag will be waiting for you.  Ensure your name is clearly marked on your bag and that you do not leave any passports, money, electronics, or other valuables in your bag.  These items should travel with you to take care of.  PLEASE NOTE: We cannot be deemed responsible for people’s personal property while traveling.  There are a variety of luggage and personal property insurance policies available to purchase.
