Sittee river nature cruise - SPECIALTY TOUR

The Sittee River Tour takes you down the Sittee River, which is one of the deepest and most scenic rivers in Belize. The Sittee River was the main route used in sugar export when the Sarpon sugar mill was in operation in the early 1900s. Your path along the river will take you through a series of small rapids and peaceful waters. Along the way you will see a variety of birds such as the white egret, heron, hawk, kingfisher, hummingbird and toucan, to name a few. Iguanas usually adorn the overhanging trees and occasionally you can view and listen to howler monkeys. Optional stops along the way include swimming in the river, checking for crocodiles resting on the banks of a nearby lagoon, and encircling a natural island of fruit trees. 

Another option is to view the Sittee River at sunset! Let the sinking sun’s colors romance you and your partner as your captain takes you on a pleasant evening cruise. The birds will be singing to you while you are sipping your wine and nibbling on your deliciously prepared snacks.

monkey river tour - SPECIALTY TOUR

A visit to Monkey River is truly a unique experience. 

Around 8 am, your guide will pick you up by boat, and you will travel through the lagoon and in among the red mangrove fringe forest along the coast. This is the habitat of the manatee and many species of birds. Most of the trip is in protected waters and will be relatively smooth. It takes about 35 minutes to reach the mouth of the river.

The guide will point out numerous iguanas, turtles and birds as you motor slowly up river. Not long into the trip the jungle usually erupt with the bizarre sounds of the Black Howler Monkey, as the troupes communicate with each other to declare their territory. Nothing you read could prepare you for the adventure of hearing these monkeys for the first time, you just have to experience it!

An hour into the trip, disembark to venture into the jungle and "see the howlers close up."Learn about the different plants and trees as your guide cuts a new trail and wanders (sometimes through water) further from the river. The sound of a troupe of howler monkeys as they burst out in a raucous chorus can send tingle up the hair on the back of your neck! It's hard to believe an animal that weighs 35 pounds can sound as big as an elephant.

Return to the mouth of the river and Monkey River Village for a genuine Belizean Creole lunch. After lunch you will take a guided tour through the small village before boarding the boat to start the trip back to the resort. You definitely don’t want to miss out on this tour!
