“Cave Tubing”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

We booked this tour through Carnival Cruise and had an excellent experience. Before we even boarded the bus, our tour guide Elvis got us pumped up and excited to go. From the moment the bus began moving, Elvis talked about where we were, things we were passing by, history of the island, and other interesting tidbits. He even brought his own photos and memorabilia to share with the group. I learned so much about this beautiful country!

The bus ride lasts a little over an hour. At the destination, you rent lockers for your bags (nothing allowed on the tube except you and a waterproof camera), get a life vest, helmet, miner's light and tube. Once outfitted, the group crosses the river and takes a 20-25 minute "rainforest jungle walk". This is how you get yourself and your tube to the launch spot. Don't expect parrots in the trees and monkeys swinging from the branches. Still, it's an interesting walk through native trees.

Once at the launch spot, tubers are connected arm to foot to keep the group together. The guide points out different geologic features and formations and talks about the Mayan history with caves. It's a relaxing 30 minute float to the extraction point.

After tubing, be sure to visit the gift shop and restaurant. The food tastes fresh and good, and the gift shop has some items you won't find back at the pier. Then it's back on the bus for the ride back.

Summer 2014: locker rental = $6, water shoe rental = $5, chicken and rice lunch = $8, tacos = $2, nachos = $4.

Tip: Buy lunch directly at the restaurant, not with the tour. It's $2 cheaper per person this way. Also, bring closed toe shoes. They're required.

“Zip Lining and Cave Tubbing ”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

I don't typically write reviews but wanted to share what an awesome experience we had on this excursion. Out of all the cruise excursions I've ever done, this was one of my favorite! Yes the bus ride was long but it was like a tour through Belize. The guide, David, was wonderful and shared very interesting information while traveling. He was also our guide through the caves. Again, very informative. In addition to the fun, it was a awesome hands on learning experience for my son. The zip line was exciting and afterwards we enjoyed a nice lunch that was very reasonably priced. I would highly recommend this tour.

“wow!!!! what fun! Best excursion of our trip!”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Elvis was our tour guide. The entire bus ride he gave us a fun and factual tour of his country. His enthusiasm and love of Belize was contagious! My family and I did the rappel, zip line, and tubing. They were very safety conscious! When we were anywhere near a point where we could possibly fall we were hooked to a line. The lunch was an authentic local dish and it was delicious. The staff was incredible friendly. All cruise excursions are expensive but I would say that this one was worth the price!

“A must-do day trip!”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

I can't say enough good thing about everyone at Chukka! We were picked up at the airport by Johnny, in an air conditioned van. He gave us a guided tour of the mainland as he drove us to our destination, which was spectacular! Tish, the reception agent was extremely helpful in coordinating our trip, and our flight back! We did the "ultimate package" which was zip-lining, repelling and cave tubing. Our guides were knowledgeable, friendly and very good at their job. And they even serve you a very good, traditional lunch after you're done!
They do service the major cruise lines so make sure you book your adventure on a day the ships are not in port. That way you'll have the place to yourself, like we did!!!

“Zip lining and cave tubing.”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

Let me start this review with this...... The staff member of the Chukka family are amazing, fun and very knowledgeable.

With that said this is probably one of the worst excursion I have ever booked through Carnival over the past 3 cruises that I have been on. The bus ride was a FULL 1 1/2 hours just to get to the site. The guides do help pass the time with knowledge about the city of Belize and interesting facts.

Once you arrive to the location they determine which obstacle you will be taking on first. We were told to go suit up for zip lining. Our group was a total for 45 people!!! That is just rediculous!!! We suited up and started our hike up the stairs to the safety demo area. Once the demo was done we all lined up and thankfully we were in the front. Sadly there were only 6 lines that you went down. After that we changed gear to go cave tubing.

We got our guide and started the 20 min hike through the forest with a tube. The guide was also very knowledgeable and pointed out different wildlife and nature throughout the hike that was interesting. Once we arrived at the entry point for the river we were forced to sit side by side and hold on to the tube next to use and they also interlock our legs under the persons arm in from of use to basically create a raft. This was the most uncomfortable 30 mins ever! The guide did try to tell us some facts about the caves but being in the back of the "raft" we could never hear him.

Once you were done with cave tubing you got to site around the property to wait for the other 45 members to be done so that you can ride back to the port.

We actually got back to the port 1 hour after the last posted tender. Due to it being a Carnival excursion they hold the boat for you but you had 0 time to shop or do anything else.

Thank you for sending your comments and feedback, we appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we can improve. First and foremost we are glad you enjoyed the guides- they are the heart of our company and proud to have the opportunity to show their country Belize to guests. In order to find the best sites for adventure experiences we often have to take guests off the beaten path and appreciate this can mean a longer ride. Ideally this adds to the experience but we can certainly appreciate that the delays you experienced were not pleasurable and they are not the norm for Chukka. We have shared your feedback with our operations team and our Belize Country Manager so they are aware of the issues you encountered. We hope that should you visit one of the countries where we operate Belize, Jamaica or Grand Turks, again you will give us the opportunity to host you and that you will have the experience you hoped for.
