About the Property
16 beachfront rustic cabanas, shared bathrooms
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....moreless

We own Long Caye at Glover's Reef, Belize; an adventure eco-resort. We never have more than 34 guests at a time. We don't use generators, therefore we don't have standard electricity. We are powered by the sun and wind with a little bit of propane thrown in to chill the beer. We don't have flush toilets or heated showers. Our cabanas sit right on the beach, very very private, very exclusive, but not fancy at all. You have to walk to your shared bathroom. No maid stops by your room, ever. At the end of the week when you leave, the boss cleans it for the next person. We have the best collection, without any competition at all, of sports gear in the country. We have expert, enthusiastic guides and we teach and guide sea kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing, kayak surfing, kayak fishing, stand-up paddling, and board surfing. You can snorkel right off shore. The diving at Glover's Reef is the best in the country.
Other Activities: surf kayaking, paddleboarding, kitesurfing, kayak fishing
Year Purchased: 1977
About the owner: Cully Erdman created Slickrock in 1977, then a small kayak school on the Colorado River. In the early 1980s he expanded to Central America (Belize) after exploring the region while assisting with adventure television shows. In 1986, Lucy Wallingford joined on as a partner, and together they developed the four Belize itineraries that they offer today.
Why the Owner Chose Belize:
Simply put, there is no place like it on earth. We've wanted to go to another place like it, just to see what it's like to be a guest. We've looked and looked, and seriously, we have not been able to find anything to compare. When the property came up for sale, we were so lucky to be able to buy it.
The Unique Benefits at this Hotel:
Honestly, the only way to describe it is the absolute perfect tropical getaway for those who cherish fascinating activity and connecting with nature. If you love glamour and over-the-top luxury, this isn't your place. If you love getting focused attention from skilled guides and being constantly amazed by stunning beauty, mysterious sea creatures, and thrilling water sports, while ensconced in a small bit of paradise, then this is your Shangri La.
