Trip Coordinators for Island Expeditions

Island Expeditions is currently seeking experienced Leaders to join our team in Belize.

Quality leadership is an integral part of any great trip and is what helps to distinguish Island Expeditions trips from the rest. Our leaders, far and away the most experienced in Belize, are consummate professionals taking great pride and personal pleasure in sharing and creating memorable travel experiences for our clients. Each Island Expeditions trip is lead by one North American leader, who works closely with a number of local Belizean guides.

When hiring new guides, we consider two distinct elements - hard skills and soft skills. Hard skills are your technical background, and proficiency in sea kayak and river kayak navigation. Soft skills are sometimes harder to define, but can be encompassed with natural history interpretive skills, the ability to work across cultures, and to be an ambassador for Belize and adventure travel with Island Expeditions Co..

Basic skills and certifications in Swiftwater Rescue, Wilderness First Aid and Sea kayaking instruction and navigation is essential as well as a background in natural history, marine biology, teaching, or related fields. A minimum of 2 years commercial guiding on multi-day trips is required to apply, previous experience in Belize will be considered an asset.
