Belize Wildlife River Tour
hrs Estimate Duration
Embark on a wildlife riverboat adventure, complete with a canvas top, where you’ll be greeted by the riverboats captain, be comfortably seated, and set to the journey as the first-mate casts-off from the dock and your captain heads out to sea and along the coast. Enjoy the scenic ride along the seafront while your guide provides you with a brief history of Belize City and its vibrant past.
You’ll enter the mouth of the Belize River after an approximately 20 minute journey, where you’ll cruise slowly along the calm waters, adjacent to the jungle covered river bank, in pursuit of the many different species of wildlife. Your guide will provide you with bird and animal identification cards and help you keep a sharp look-out for crocodiles, manatees, and iguanas, numerous species of colorful birds and even on occasion, a playful dolphin or two that have come up the river in search of a meal. Once wildlife is spotted, your captain will bring you as close as possible for a better view and photo opportunities.
You’ll learn about some of the Belizean bush medicine remedies that have been used by the Mayan, the Bushmen who have worked these jungles for centuries and about some the tropical tree species and other tropical flora found growing along the riverbanks. On the return journey, your attentive crew will serve you a complementary rum punch or non-alcoholic fruit punch, while you listen to rhythmic Caribbean vibes.
