Central America Belize Cruise

Belize & Guatemala Wonders—Rivers, Reefs & Mayan Culture

Explore the Belize Barrier Reef and trek into colorful jungles and towns on this 8-day Caribbean paradise cruise. From the intimate 66-guest Safari Voyager, soak up Belize and Guatemala’s vibrant cultures and landscapes through hikes, kayak paddles, skiff rides, snorkels and swims.

Highlights include time cruising along the Belize Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the second largest coral reef in the world; visiting with scientists at a Smithsonian Marine Field Station; hiking the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the world’s first recognized jaguar refuge; and a beach party on a private island. Along the way, take in indigenous Mayan and Garifuna cultures through food, music, dance and visits to ancient ruins. Look for aspects of these cultures in modern-day life while visiting the towns of Punta Gorda and Livingston. On land, trek through varied scenery including savannah, jungled and tiered waterfalls, watching for howler monkeys, birds and the trail of jaguars. On the water, try a plethora of activities to seek out manatees, crocodiles and birds along mangroves and limestone cliff-lined Rio Dulce.

In 2023, a special 9-day themed departure adds a day to experience the 2023 Annular Eclipse. This one-time cruise will offer magnificent landscapes, natural surroundings and intentionally positioned ocean viewing from a private vessel for the atmospheric event. Join other eclipse enthusiasts, experienced guides, photography lovers, nature lovers and umbraphiles for this fleeting phenomenon. 

After a day of exploration, unwind on the luxurious Safari Voyager while taking in the panoramic views of Belize and Guatemala’s awe-inspiring natural surroundings. The 174-foot M/V Safari Voyager offers advanced expedition functionality for cruising to hard-to-reach places in the Caribbean. She is built to handle the region’s humidity and heat that can challenge lesser-designed vessels.
