Leaning Palm Resort

​​​On the Beach, Near the Jungle, Far from the Crowd

Leaning Palm Resort | Near Gales Point, Belize | info@leaningpalmresort.com

Meet the wildlife – up close and personal.
For everyone who’s ever dreamed of slipping into clear waters and swimming among schools of colorful fish, meeting sea turtles and getting close-up with octopi, this is the tour for you.  Just 30 minutes from our beach, the thriving Belize Barrier Reef is shallow enough for even the most timid snorkelers and swimmers, while keeping experienced water-lovers thoroughly entertained. You’ll even do a little fishing for dinner to and from the reef.


Our small, intimate tours travel to reef locations and cayes that aren’t on any cruise ship itinerary, so you’ll explore the water and its sea creatures without a crowd. Transport is by way of our comfortable, fully-stocked private cruise boat. A friendly local expert will help you learn the ins and outs of the reef wildlife, open-water fishing – and much more!

Leaning Palm Resort supplies all the necessities: knowledgeable guide, transportation, snorkeling gear, top-quality spinning gear, bait, fishing licenses, a gourmet lunch for full-day tours, snacks, drinking water and sodas. Beer and wine are available for purchase, as are fishing flies. We ask that fly fishermen bring their own rods and reels.

Snorkeling Adventure
Prepare yourself for a day spent admiring the stunning Belize coastline, deep blue water and colorful ocean creatures. You’ll board our comfortable private cruise boat at Leaning Palm Resort and leisurely head for the cayes, trolling for fish along the way. (Whatever you catch, we’ll serve for dinner!) At picturesque Rendezvous Caye or Goff’s Caye, you’ll explore an uncrowded stretch of reef with the help of your local guide and your underwater camera. A beach lunch is served on the caye, followed by more snorkeling and fishing on your return to Leaning Palm Resort.

  • Full day (starts at 8 am, includes gourmet lunch on the caye)             $450-$700 USD

         Limited to eight guests.


Mystical Manatee River Run Kayaking Adventure
Immerse yourself deep in the jungle and explore the secrets of its waterways via a nimble kayak. You and your experienced local guide will put in at the Manatee River Bridge and travel the Manatee River all the way down to the Southern Lagoon. Along the way, you may spot howler monkeys, turtles, tapir and gibnut as you peacefully float through seas of bamboo and water lilies. Enjoy a gourmet lunch on the river. At the Southern Lagoon, you’ll trade your kayak for a ride in our cruise boat. After a stop at Manatee Spring to meet the local manatee celebrities, you’ll head back to Leaning Palm Resort for happy hour.
