Trip Description

Travel with CWRU to the Belize Barrier Reef, one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world, on this 6-Day/5-Night voyage. Experience the vibrant sea, home to the largest coral reef in the northern hemisphere, just recently taken off UNESCO's endangered list.  Discover the tropical wonders of Belize on a voyage along the country’s coastline and reef system. 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.
