A Voyage to Belize: Wildlife, Reefs, and Rivers

Explore vibrant reefs and near-mythical ruins on a land-and-sea expedition
Discover the tropical wonders of Belize on a voyage along the country’s remote southern coast. Using the National Geographic Quest as your base for exploration, snorkel the colorful corals of the Belize barrier reef, skirt the shores of white-sand islands by kayak and stand-up paddleboard, and swim in turquoise lagoons teeming with marine life. Head inland to explore lush jungles on foot; and cruise coastal rivers in Zodiacs, seeking out howler monkeys and toucans in the surrounding rain forest canopy.

Expedition Overview

  • Set out from the state-of-the-art National Geographic Quest to kayak and paddleboard turquoise lagoons, and board Zodiacs to cruise wildlife-rich coastal rivers.
  • Spot turtles, rays, and rainbow-colored fish while snorkeling or diving the coral gardens of the Belize barrier reef.
  • Join a naturalist for a hike in Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the world’s first jaguar reserve.
  • Enjoy a festive drumming performance from the internationally acclaimed Garifuna Collective.

What to Expect 

The expedition experience can be tailored to the activity level you choose, whether it’s light or moderate or a little of both. Travelers should be in good health, comfortable walking or standing for extended periods of time, and able to get in and out of expedition landing craft. Our itinerary includes Zodiac cruises and easy hikes, with options each day for more physical activities such as longer hikes, kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, or biking. Scuba diving is offered at additional cost.
