Experience sea kayaking in Belize right off Long Caye’s shore, where the shallow waters inside the Belize Barrier Reef and the remote offshore atolls provide endless opportunities for exploration. Paddle to offshore islands, reefs, and hidden mangrove swamps, and spot colorful schools of tropical fish.
With the clear and warm waters, you can easily snorkel from the sea kayaks and encounter turtles, porpoises, sharks, and giant groupers. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced kayaker, Belize’s calm tides and lack of strong currents make it the perfect place to learn or improve your sea kayaking skills.
Slickrock provides all the necessary equipment for both beginning and advanced boaters to enjoy the thrill of kayak surfing. The high-tech sit-on-top surf kayaks with planing hulls, fins, ankle leashes, seat backs, and leg straps make catching a wave easy, even for those without prior experience.
With a short orientation, you’ll be riding the waves in no time. Steering is accomplished with rudder strokes to the back of the boat, and wipe-outs are no threat as you simply fall out and climb back aboard. Take advantage of this exhilarating experience right off the island!
Long Caye is a prime location for kayak fishing at Glover’s Reef Atoll. The latest fishing kayaks are equipped with tackle storage, rod holders, fish holds, and anchors, providing an alternative to fishing from the shore or dock. A sit-on-top kayak’s versatility and stealth capabilities make it easier to reach fantastic fishing locations and allow fishermen to access fishing spots that would otherwise require hiring a guide and boat.
Although trolling on the outer reef is not always possible, a variety of fish species, such as grouper, dorado, permit, kingfish, and marlin, can be found on the outer wall, just 100 yards away from your cabana!
Slickrock offers the perfect place to learn the kayak eskimo roll in the crystal clear waters of the island’s lagoon. Expert instructors will guide you through the steps of the Screw Roll, the most commonly used roll in kayaking, because it is reliable, easy to learn, and works in most circumstances.
With the resort’s river kayaks and paddles, you’ll have everything you need to master this essential skill. The warm 80-degree water and snorkel masks ensure a comfortable and practical learning environment. Once you’ve grasped the roll, you can take your skills to the next level by practicing in the surf at the best Belize surf spot.
