Belize Kayak Rentals
Expedition-ready sea kayaks are available for self-propelled adventures along Belize's Southern Barrier Reef. This kayak rental is for experienced paddlers who are interested in outfitting their own unguided adventure on Belize's Southern Barrier Reef. All kayak rentals begin with a briefing at our Dangriga office and boats are available to begin the trip from Tobacco Caye, or from Dangriga if arranged in advance. Water taxis are available from Dangriga to Tobacco Caye. Please contact our office for further details.
Payment for kayak rentals can be made by cheque, Visa, or MasterCard at the time of reserving your kayak. One week prior to your departure a fully refundable security deposit of $500 USD for a single and $750 USD for a double is required to be authorized on your credit card. Renters are responsible for the return of the equipment in the same condition that it is received and are responsible to pay in full for any repairs or replacement if the equipment is damaged or lost. Renters are required to complete and sign a Kayak & Equipment Rental Agreement form before equipment is released.

Also, Dangriga is within cell phone range from most of the Central Barrier Reef. You may rent a cell phone at the International Airport, upon your arrival if you do not have a VHF radio communications.
