Trip Preparation
It is good to begin exercises a minimum of two weeks before your scheduled departure.  To facilitate paddling, the following is a list of exercises for wrist, arm, and upper body strength.
•Sit-ups: 5 to 20 per session - 1-3 times daily
•Push-ups: (min. of 10 per session - 1-3 times per day)
•Wrist-curls: 2-3 per session - 1-3 times per day.  To perform: take a 2 ft. long rounded baton (a stick, dowel or cut-off broom handle will do), attach a length of sturdy rope (measuring 2-3 ft.) in the middle of the baton, to this tie a light weight bag filled with sand or a rock (approx. 2lbs) to the end of the rope.  Grasp baton with both hands on either side of rope, straight out from your body, and wind the weight up and down, turning the baton alternately in one hand and the other, until the rope is wound around the baton and then unwound
•To improve your snorkeling ability, some time at a swimming pool is encouraged.  Practice swimming, not only lengths, but also legs-only.  Furthermore, it is important to try out your snorkeling equipment in the pool to ensure comfort if you have not used the equipment before.

Sea Kayaking in the Tropics
A typical day will include paddling and sailing from one island to another or to patch reefs within the atoll.  Whenever possible we take advantage of the northeasterly trade winds to fill our sails as we travel.  The protection of the reef wall and shallow inshore waters provides one of the best places in the world for sea kayaking.
Our main concerns while on the water are protection from sun (both above and reflected off the water), dehydration, and the effects of salt.  Protection from the sun and dehydration are easily managed by wearing a wide brimmed hat, using a good waterproof sunscreen (SPF 15-35), and wearing light-colored clothing and, of course, drinking plenty of fluids.
As for salt, the high salinity of the Caribbean Sea can dry your skin and cause blisters on hands (paddling) and feet (snorkeling).  Skin lotion or moisturizer for your skin, gloves to protect your hands (cotton garden gloves or cycle gloves work very well), and socks for your feet while snorkeling are recommended.

The Company
Transformational travel might be the latest buzzword, but we’ve been practitioners, and believers, that experiential travel changes lives, since establishing Island Expeditions in 1987.
We introduced the modern sea kayak to Belize in 1987, and 20 years later, brought the first stand-up paddleboards to the country’s seldom explored coral reefs and tropical cayes.
For the first 15 years of our operation, we worked intimately with the local community, to build lasting relationships. We recruited dive fisherman and bush hunters, with no background in tourism, to work as our guides.
It’s a pleasure to continue to collaborate closely with the local community, and employ the next generation of guides -- skilled instructors, fully qualified Swift Water Rescue technicians, Belizeans who are adept at bridging the world they grew up in - cooking over open fires and sleeping in hammocks with their siblings - with your world and expectations of comfort and leisure.
Named by National Geographic Adventure as one of the Best Adventure Travel Companies on Earth, our trips have been acclaimed by Outside Magazine and the Globe and Mail. And just as importantly, 30,000 guests, and counting. Be part of a 30 year tradition of seeking out timeless and unspoiled places. Let Belize and Island Expeditions rekindle your wonder and coax your inner adventurer into the wild.

Your Leaders
Our leaders, far and away the most experienced in Belize, are consummate professionals taking great pride and personal pleasure in sharing and creating memorable travel experiences for you. With backgrounds as naturalists and teachers, photographers, fishermen and explorers, they provide invaluable insights into the areas and cultures we travel.
All wilderness trips are led by the most experience leaders in the business. This ensures that you are venturing into the wilds of Belize with Belizean guides, who have a wealth of experience and skills relating to the environments, languages and customs of their native land, along with North American leaders who accompany the group, and are trained to North American standards in Wilderness First Aid, Swiftwater Rescue and Kayaking Instruction. Perhaps most important, IE guides' consideration for your safety, and their enthusiasm, good nature and dedication help to set the tone for each trip... where learning and exceptional adventures go hand in hand.
