Details

Ahoy, Get set to have an adventure of a life time! This is will be a Belize adventure to see as much of the country and culture as possible in a weeks span. Below is a picture of our group last year! A highlight of this trip will be sailing into the blue hole and light house reef. This way we get to spend as much time as we like and not be rushed as we are on our own boats!! Rendezvous scuba diving will be arranged! Sign up early as last flotilla I turned people away as all the boats were fill and no other boats were available.

May 4th

fly into Belize and head down to Placencia. Have a group dinner and get ready for you sailing vacation

May 5th

We will board our catamaran at noon and head out to our first Caye for the night. Then make our way Island (in belize island are called caye) hopping to San Pedro. Activities along the way will be Sailing, fishing, Kayaking, paddle boards, snorkeling, possibly diving off our own boat and general relaxing and enjoying some of the most beautiful islands around. Belize has over 300 islands next to its cost and protected by the barrier reef so the waters are shallow and calm for most of the time. We also plan on sailing in to the blue hole!

May 10th

Arrive in San Pedro. San Pedro/Ambergris Caye have been voted #1 island destination on tripadvisor. . Snorkeling tours allow you to swim with rays, turtles and nurse sharks but I think we will have done that already since we were on a boat for 6 days.

Another place to see is Caye Caulker. This Caye is very relaxed with no cars only golf carts and you can walk to just about everything. This might be another place to see.

You can stay as long as you would like but some people will be heading home this day. I plan on staying a few more days to take it all in.

Boat

We will be booking 48ft catamarans. We had one in our fleet last year and it was amazing! Each boat will have a captain as Belize has large fines for running aground and known for very shallow sailing grounds. Local knowledge is much needed here. That does not mean you will not get to pull the lines and steer the boat. This is safety for the group.
