Island Expeditions: 30 Years Supporting Conservation in Belize

front-page-kayak-coral2Dangriga, Belize Canadian ecotourism and adventure travel company Island Expeditions has announced its 30 Year Anniversary with promotional events going on for the next three months. The company has also confirmed its continued commitment to conservation efforts in Belize parks, each year contributing over $100,000 to organizations that are actively involved with protecting the coral reefs, wildlife management, education, and advocacy for sustainable development in Belize. Since 1987, Island Expeditions has been leading the way, introducing thousands of adventure travelers to Belize, educating them on the local Belizean culture in pristine environments. The activities the company offers include kayaking, snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), Mayan archaeology, and rainforest exploration.
In 1987, Island Expeditions was one of the first adventure travel companies in the world to develop their unique brand of trips combining education and adventure on the longest barrier reef in the Western Hemisphere, even before UNESCO named it as a heritage site. The company is well known in Belize and has several remote island basecamps for reef activities: Tobacco Caye, Glover’s Reef Atoll (a United Nations’ World Heritage Site) and Lighthouse Atoll, which has close access to the legendary Blue Hole. Travelers can also experience a wide range of jungle adventure activities at Bocawina Rainforest Resort, a luxury rainforest resort with ziplines, cave tubing, bird watching, and Mayan ruins.
Island Expeditions founder Tim Boys states, “After three decades in Belize we’ve always known since the beginning how delicate and beautiful the Belize Barrier Reef system is and it’s been our mission to provide ongoing financial support while educating people from all over the world on how important this marine environment is to the global community.” Tim adds, “Island Expeditions’ trips are designed to provide the traveler with a complete Belize experience, no matter what time of the year they come.”
A pioneer in the adventure travel industry, Island Expeditions has been providing world-class kayaking, SUP, and snorkeling experiences in Belize for thousands of international travelers since 1987. Their Belizean guides are recognized as the top professionals in the industry – speaking multiple languages, they receive extensive training and are licensed by the Belize Tourism Board. Over the thirty years, the company has brought more than 22,000 tourists, including high school and university students to this Central American country. Students and travelers can get educated on the tropical marine life located in United Nations World Heritage Sites and jungle wildlife located in National Rainforest Parks. Island Expeditions is able to offer year round trips to Belize for all levels of travelers.
In April, Island Expeditions will continue to celebrate its 30-year milestone with discounts on trips booked to Belize, with new winners announced every week; and chances to win gear package giveaways, Amazon Kindle E-readers, and even a free lunch at popular restaurants like Olive Garden, Red Lobster, and the Keg Steakhouses.
