Ready to paddle and play in warm water and sunshine? Join wonderful women for 9 days of bliss in beautiful Belize! Eat freshly caught fish, snorkel, paddle and camp for 6 days, join yoga on the beach if you wish, laugh with your toes in the warm sand and surround yourself with beauty...this is an adventure of a lifetime! We'll have time after paddling to explore and rest at a baboon nature reserve and explore. Local guides will share about Belizean culture, wildlife, human and natural history and the best spots to paddle. We'll also have a safety power boat with us, our U.S. guide, Spring, is a professional kayak instructor (from Port Orchard) and our other U.S. guide, Maria (from Bainbridge Island), was a sailboat captain for years in this area as well as a seamanship instructor for Outward Bound in the San Juans.
