vacation rental description

When Slickrock Adventures first moved out to Glover's Reef Atoll off the coast of Belize, our goal was to develop a facility that feels non-developed. Throughout the Caribbean there are very few facilities that are this rustic by design. On Long Caye, development means fifteen cabanas perched right on the water’s edge, a well-stocked kitchen and fantastic menu, solar-powered pumps and lighting, composting toilets, expert guides, three dozen sea kayaks, a bunch of sailboards, surf kayaks, surf boards, fishing kayaks, paddleboards, kiteboarding, a dive shop (the only thing not owned by Slickrock). There is no maid service, air conditioners or flush toilets. Your cell phone won’t work and there’s no internet access. But there is a fridge permanently loaded with Fantas and Belikin beer, private beaches, and great people. It all represents the soft side of adventure travel - right down to the excellent chefs who cook your meal and then sit down at the table with you to dine.

Sea Kayaking: The 80-degree waters of the Caribbean create an unbeatable setting to enjoy the thrills of sea kayaking. No experience is required for this or any of our other activities. Our guides provide instruction covering a full range of kayaking techniques, including paddling strokes, rolling, and rescues. We paddle every day to nearby islands, into the lagoon, or along the reef in search of new snorkeling locations. Skimming over the neon blue water, our boats dodge patch reefs and startle spotted eagle rays, barracuda, and bonefish. We often see porpoise and sea turtles while paddling through the channels into the open sea, where we stop to snorkel from the boats.

Snorkeling: Of all the highlights of your visit to Long Caye, exploring the underwater world will be the most memorable. The pristine reefs of Belize are world-renowned, and those at Glover’s National Marine Reserve are the best in the country. In addition to 700+ patch reefs accessible by kayak, there is outstanding snorkeling on the reef wall just off our shore. The abundance and variety of sea life is astounding, and you could spend a lifetime exploring the coral formations at Glover’s Reef Belize.

Fishing: Although Slickrock’s program emphasizes kayaking, snorkeling, diving, surfing, and windsurfing, fishermen will not be disappointed! There is no need to hire a private guide, you just wade in. The fishing (catch-and-release only) is excellent just off our island; in fact Belizean fishing guides regularly bring their guests over 20 miles by boat just to fish a few feet from our shore. It is common to pull in up to a half-dozen bonefish per session. Many fishermen also spin-cast off of our dock and permit, jack, and barracuda also provide a great deal of excitement. Fishermen can fish any time they like, if you get up early or fish late in the day you won't even miss any of the other activities.

      • Featured on the cover of Outside magazine, our spacious island (13.5 acres) and rustic facilities ensure your comfort without compromising the adventure of living on an undeveloped and uncrowded island. You'll notice our windows on our beach huts don't have screens and we don't use mosquito netting. This is because we have a rare island in Belize where bugs really aren't a problem, and when they are present, we spray. And, best of all, a hammock with your name on it is waiting under the palms! Guests stay in two-person beach huts, perched above the surf. Each cabana has beds with custom-made air mattresses and a porch with hammocks and lounge chairs. Luggage benches and a small closet are provided and the cabins are lit with solar-powered lights. No air-conditioning is necessary since the ever-present breeze keeps the temperatures well below what they are on the mainland.

A DREAM COME TRUE! TOTAL SECLUSION, TONS OF FUN!

Review submitted: October 25, 2013   Date of arrival: April 25, 2013

If you are only comfotable at a five star hotel, please stay at one, this is not for you! But, if you love total seclusion, no cell phone, no internet, and tons of outdoor fun, then go to Glovers Reef w/Slickrock. The island is just so beautiful! The cabins, restrooms, and showers were very very clean, and much nicer then I expected. The diving is completely amazing! Dove with turtles, baracuda, nurse sharks, stingray, lion fish, parrot fish, scorpion fish, and many, many more. The cabin was right on the water, and I totally loved being lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. Lucy and Gerrish are wonderful hosts. The staff is always helpful.

If you want to be totally comfortable, and enjoy your trip, be properly prepared! READ everything that they send! They took the time to write it for a reason.
And, diet before you go, because you will gain at least 5 pounds. All food is prepared from scratch, and is incredibly delicious. I would go back, just to eat the food!!!

Why we chose Slickrock on Long Caye

Review submitted: October 23, 2013   Date of arrival: April 3, 2013

WHY DID WE CHOOSE GLOVERS REEF ATOLL WITH SLICKROCK?

We were looking for a snorkel/kayak vacation and learned that the Barrier Reef in Belize was unmatched. We researched all of the available options and when we ran across Slickrock we were delighted because they offered not only snorkeling and kayaking, but windsurfing, kite sailing, surf kayaking, surfing, fishing, world class diving, SUP, and more! And all on a private island in the middle of the Caribbean!

WHY WOULD WE GO BACK TO SLICKROCK?

The experience exceeded our expectations on every level. The activities, the guides, the hosts, the cooks, the entire staff, and the experience were top notch. The snorkeling was the best we've ever experienced with octopus, eels, lobster, and the most abundant and beautiful fish we've ever seen. The trip was as personalized or group oriented as you chose. What we most enjoyed was that we could try anything we wanted, for as long as we wanted, get help if we wanted, refine it on our own if we wanted, be with the group if we wanted, have a personal activity if we wanted. The selection of activities and the pace were ours to choose. We would highly recommend this trip to all of our adventurous friends. The guides are excellent on and off the water. They are knowledgeable about the equipment, safety, instruction, marine life, history, geology, ecology, etc. The couldn't have done more to make sure we were well taken care of. The cooks prepared a wide variety of local favorites that were excellent and fresh. The cabanas are basic, with a beautiful setting on the water's edge. However, we spent almost no time at the cabana as we were always in/on the water. The trip was worth every penny and we'd do it again in a heart beat!
