Belize Island Exploration
Discover uninhabited islands that dot the barrier reef, or visit fun islands with local beach bars. Shop at local markets and experience Belizean culture and dine on shore at one of the many authentic eateries, meet the locals on remote islands, or indulge in a luxurious spa day at one of the boutique retreats that dot the coast…. you pick the pace!
On the Water
Enjoy world-class snorkeling directly from your yacht with the expertise and local knowledge from your captain and guide. Swim with sting rays & nurse sharks at Hol Chan Marine Reserve or go on a reef & marine eco-tour in Caye Caulker. We explore manatee reserves by kayak, spot dolphins from the bow, and amaze at the prolific birdlife from paddle boards while working up an appetite for the nights catch.
Fishing and Trolling
Every day we set sail we troll for our catch of the day, which can include king mackerel, cobia, bonito tuna and snapper, which is whimsically prepared by your chef and 1st mate. For the enthusiasts, we can make arrangements (for an extra charge) for fly fishing, reef fishing or deep sea fishing. Our captains also carry spear guns on board for an opportune moment to spear a lobster or snapper to add to the pot!
Under the Water
‘Rendezvous’ diving can be arranged throughout the country using the best dive shops with 5-star industry ratings. From certifications courses, to refresher dives, to excursions to the great Blue Hole, we can arrange it all as part of your Belize sailing itinerary.
On Land Excursions
Whether you want to climb grand Mayan temples, canoe down river through the exotic jungle, clamber through the largest cave network in Central America or be pampered in an award winning spa, we can tailor make it all as part of your sailing vacation.
For a stay on land before or after your vacation, our sister business Absolute Belize can tailor make a trip finely tuned to your preferences.
If relaxation is the top of your hit list you will have all the right opportunities – sun on the trampolines or relax under the shade of the expansive bimini, enjoy cocktails and dine on deck under the stars in quiet anchorages, practice yoga on the bow at sunrise or float in azure waters of the Caribbean, the tempo is yours. We can also arrange for a private masseuse to visit the boat for custom spa treatments (anchorage dependent).
