Kayaking is undertaken in a lightweight canoe, made from a range of materials including plastic, metal, fibreglass and wood. The canoe-like vehicle is propelled using a double-bladed paddle. However, unlike canoeing, kayakers sit upright and facing the front of the boat, with their legs in front. Kayaks usually hold two people, but one person kayaks are also available.
Paddle boarding on the other hand, is undertaken without the use of an oar, often using your own arms. Whilst paddles are available, the user will more often use their arms to propel themselves forward, either from a seated or lying position atop the board. There are a range of sizes for the board, ranging from 12 foot to sometimes over 18 foot.
As mentioned above, our free to sue paddleboards and kayaks give you a chance to explore many areas often unseen by everyday guests at the Itza Resort. With a wide range of private beaches and islands which are only reachable by sailing there, you won’t have to organise a lift with a paddleboard or kayak at your side.
Whether you’re off on a romantic trip with your partner, or you’re looking for some peace and quiet out on the Caribbean Sea, our kayaks act as a tool to enjoy the Belize coast line just the way you want to. Whether night or day, you have the chance to explore the resort the way you want to and with the people who matter the most.
Needless to say, The Great Blue Hole is the primary destination of every tourist traveling to Belize. This giant marine sinkhole lies near the centre of Lighthouse Reef, atoll. This, one of the top scuba diving sites in the word, attracts the recreational scuba divers.
