We are doing Carnival Legend in December. WOndering about the cave tubing that I see many recommend - is it going to be OK for couple of larger mature adults one with bad knees?

Don't think the "larger" part of your question will matter, they have some big tubes and once in the water you are not going to be doing much of any work.. you basically just float down the river. The bad knees part is another story. To get to yoru launching point requires a hike through the jungle (on a jungle path) of about a 1/2 mile or so. (longer on some of the private excursion operators). This might be a big issue if you have bad knees. The path is wet and can be slippery and uneven.

I loved the cave tubing, but you may wish to reconsider.

Jim C. I am wanting to do this too after reading your review a while back. I am thinking of booking with cave-tubing.com I can't find your recco for who you used that was so great.

We have never go the opporunity to do this but wanted to. I bet it was a lot of fun. About how much time do you spend and how much is it.

IslandCruz- Point your web browser toReggie's Tours. There are several operators in Belize, but if you read my review of Reggie's, you will know why I recommend him.

We just returned from our cruise and used cavetubing.com to do the caves and the city tour. Great trip and very good price compared to the cruise ship excursion. BUTTS UP!

I would use these folks again. Wish I had bought the t-shirt. BUTTS UP!

Considerable walking (about a mile) is involved to get to the river entry point.

BUTTS UP! You will use the term if you do the tube, some of the water gets shallow enough to drag what ever hangs down.

We used Dennis at Explore Belize Caves back in November, and were very pleased with the service. There were 22 of us on a private tour we set up, we had 3 tour guides. They could accomodate any size person, we even had a gentleman that was and ex football player, weighing in at around 365 pounds, and he had a great time. And yes, butts up is a great saying..you learn real fast what that means when you are floating through the caves.

Since all the tours are practically the same (they all go to the same place in the river) you'll be better off with a small group that Reggie has to offer. If he gets more people signed up for a particular day he has a bus to accommodate everyone. It's much easier to navigate with only 6 or 8 people in a group rather than 40 with the ship tours. If you make reservations online with Reggie, he'll be at the waiting place he will wait until you arrive. We even took on an extra 2 people along the route from another tour operator who only had two people going- They seem to work with each other. Another plus in going with Reggie is that he'll drop you off for shopping anywhere in town on the return leg and his price is probably 2/3 that of the ship's tour.
