We carefully plan programs so that you contribute to TIDE's programs in a meaningful way
If you’re looking for a travel experience where you go beyond being a traveler, but become a participant in local programs, and make a valuable contribution to the people and places visited, then look no further than our Customized Expeditions.
Whether you are travelling with family, friends, or colleagues, our customized expeditions are tailored to your groups’ interests, travel schedule, and budget. We carefully plan programs so that you contribute to TIDE’s programs in a meaningful way.
Just let us know when you’re available, and if there’s something in particular that you’re interested in, and we will identify programs at TIDE that you can assist with. All necessary training is provided during your expedition, and we can also use your existing skills and interests in innovative ways to help our conservation work.
Not sure what you want to do? No problem! We will discuss ideas with you, based on your group, to create the perfect itinerary.
During your expedition, you can work alongside TIDE scientists and rangers, staying in homestays and at our field stations, making for a truly immersive and unforgettable experience. You will have a knowledgeable local guide assigned to your group, who will look after you every step of the way, and ensure your experience is as unforgettable as Belize. Through TIDE Tours, we are able to arrange all your in-country arrangements, from pick up at the International Airport, accommodation, meals, and fun activities to do alongside your program.
Participants on our Customized Expeditions have been helping TIDE with a range of programs over the years, which include manatee and dolphin monitoring, sea-grass studies, reforestation, marine turtle nest patrols, parrot monitoring, SCUBA diving to monitor coral health, and maintaining our research transects in the tropical forest. Have green fingers? Why not help us create an eco-garden? Love painting? Help us to improve the educational signage in our protected areas. Have a knack for business? Why not lend a hand in a small community business and help them to grow?
No matter what your interests and skills, we can create a custom expedition that is perfect for your group. Get in touch with our team to discuss ideas and start the planning process!
