About Island Expeditions


Fun and adventure, learning and challenge go hand in hand on an Island Expeditions educational trip. The way we learn and explore as a group is inherently fun and adventurous. Since 1987, Island Expeditions has operated adventure learning trips in Belize that have set the standard for others to follow. We not only travel to the most remarkable locations in the country, but we also take you there at the right times, with professional leaders and with the quality gear you need to explore and learn to the fullest. On the Barrier Reef, in the rainforest, and on the rivers our years of experience and knowledge of Belize are with you every step and paddle stroke of the way. 

"If you have a notion to take school groups kayaking in the Caribbean, I recommend Island Expeditions without reserve. They are the best company we have ever been associated with in our ten years of kayaking throughout North and South America."
-Wayne M. Naka, Principal, Stanley Humphries Secondary

Leading the Way in Adventure...
Our trips in Belize are the culmination of a decade and a half of research and exploration. As we search for new paddling routes along the barrier reef, trek into the headwaters of a remote river, or join an archaeology team mapping recently discovered Mayan ruins, our constant goal is to improve your educational travel experience. Who would have thought that when we first began our sea kayak and snorkel trips at remote and seldom visited Glover's Reef Atoll that over a decade later it would become both a treasured National Park and United Nations World Heritage Site. In 2002 we opened our newest basecamp on Halfmoon Cay, Lighthouse Reef. With its spectacular beaches and astonishing abundance of marine life it is no surprise Lighthouse Reef has quickly become our most popular tropical island basecamp.

Island Expedition's trips are more than adventure and exploration in exotic locales. Along with skilled instruction in sports and activities, our trips brim full with learning and interaction with the people, the land, the sea and the wildlife of Belize. We also know that a great adventure is created from having professional leaders, first-class equipment, nutritious and delicious meals and you can be confident that your participation in an IEC trip contributes to protecting the wild and wonderful places we depend on.

"This was one of the most positive and memorable experiences I've had in 17 years of teaching. The educational opportunities afforded by Island Expeditions are unsurpassed."
