Yacht Charter in Belize
Ambergris Cay, San Pedro, Blue Holes


Take a yacht charter in Belize and sail some of the most unspoiled islands of the planet. The luminous turquoise waters of the Belize archipelago are made up of over 200 tropical islands and coral atolls, and boast some of the most pristine beaches. Belize has become a popular destination for sailors and divers from around the world. A yacht charter to Belize will reward one’s senses of a true relaxing tropical vacation .
Belize boasts some of the most pristine, unspoiled, natural beauty you will find anywhere in the world.  An ample supply of deserted islands and beautiful cruising grounds await you!  The 15-22 knot easterly trade winds of Belize 's sailing grounds will take you to some of the most amazing places you can imagine. There are hundreds of sandy cayes for anchoring all within the reef. The distance between anchorages is short and the shallow draft of the all-catamaran fleet assures easy navigation.
Belize offer all the types of yacht charter such as bareboat charter, skippered and crewed yacht charter.

In Belize , chartering a boat has one requirement
Bareboating outside the reef is not allowed :it's not as well charted, which makes it more dangerous everywhere coming in through unmarked "cuts" in the reef and once inside the atolls, the shoal waters are full of coral rock formations that lie in so many areas in such numbers that the charts simply say "numerous coral heads or patch reefs". We highly recommend to have a local skipper aboard.

Marina and starting bases In Belize
Ambergris Cay is one of the most perfect places in Belize to begin your yacht charter. The town of San Pedro has long been the tourist capital of Belize with the main attraction being diving and water sports.  San Pedro is a very laid back fishing village with sand streets and a population of about 4,000.  There are more golf carts than cars, and a plenitude of restaurants, bars, dive shops and souvenir shops. As you sail south, Caye Caulker is the last island with any real dining choices. This is also the last place to buy ice, drinks and food (except seafood from a passing fisherman). Water filling only in Ambergris Cay or Placencia.

In Placencia, the main street is a three-mile stretch of sidewalk in which there are a few local services, including a laundry service and small grocery. If you are planning to start from Placencia, it is a wise idea to have provisions planned in advance. This is not an active spot for nightlife and restaurant dinners. This is paradise on earth, very tranquil and serene.I


Caye Caulker
A relaxed fishing village with many choices for less expensive dining. It's a great stop for a fun night out and is home to several dive shops. Heading south, it offers a last chance to provision.

Caye Chapel
This privately owned island has a fine marina and clubhouse with a pool and caters to the rich & famous. An ideal location if you want to golf on vacation.

St. George's Caye
 The east side provides a great anchorage behind the sand flats. Dining out is still possible at the only public restaurant, surprisingly called 'Cottage Colony'.

Goff's Caye
Goff's is a tiny island on the reef just north of our main shipping channel, English Channel . Boasting good snorkeling and a beautiful beach.

English Caye
A lighthouse marks the south side of English Channel, where this island offers superb snorkeling 1000 feet south on a huge coral patch.

Rendezvous Caye
This is a jewel of an island also located right on the reef. Another beautiful beach with excellent snorkeling all around, this is also a good location for scuba diving on the 60 foot outside wall. Not a safe overnight anchorage, however, with it's coral all around. This is a 'must see' day stop.

Bluefield Range
Providing a safe 'lagoon style' anchorage, the two fish camps usually offer a choice of fresh seafood for dinner.

Colson Cayes
Another safe anchorage with several fish camps, the Colson Cayes offer a shallow lagoon to explore by dinghy, with plenty of coral nearby for snorkeling.

Tobacco Caye
 A fine overnight anchorage (unless in a northerly wind), you have several choices for basic meals and a few bars on the island. There's a dive shop for those who enjoy scuba diving and plenty of good snorkeling

South Water Caye
This is as far south as one would go in a week from San Pedro and as far north as you would travel from Placencia in a week. An idyllic retirement island right on the reef South Water Caye is host to three resorts:

Laughing Bird Caye
A marine reserve Laughing Bird offers some of the best snorkeling and scuba diving you'll find inside the barrier reef.

Buttonwood & Little Water Caye
Both cayes offer a fine lee shore for anchoring in any wind.

Queen Cayes
Located quite close to the reef, these three tiny coral islands offer great snorkeling

Ranguana & Tom Owens Caye
Both right on the reef, these islands offer good anchorages for a few boats per night and more superb snorkeling all around.

The Sapodilla Cayes
At the south end of the second largest Barrier reef in the world you'll find a string of palm covered islands.  Lime Caye is a campground for several fishermen who keep a meal or two available in live traps for your dining pleasure.

The Rio Dulce of Guatemala
Just 25 short miles south of the Sapodilla Cayes lies the port of Livingston where you are required to check in and out of Guatemala .  A local restaurant provides a great stop along the way where they'll pull your choice of fresh fish out of the live trap at the dock.

Diving and Fishing
Belize is renowned for its excellent diving. For optimum safety and specific locations, we encourage you to dive with the local dive shops along the way. Most dives need to be booked a day ahead as all diving is weather dependent. Snorkelling equipment is provided on each yacht.
You do not need a license. Trolling while sailing is most popular, but you can also toss a line just about anywhere and catch a fish or two.  Most people catch jacks and barracuda while trolling inside the reef, but you might also catch a small snapper while at anchor.

Airport in Belize
Philip Goldson International Airport (BZE) just 2.5 hours flight via US gateway cities such as Miami , Houston or Dallas will take you to Belize City. Once at Belize International, a 15 minute commuter plane with Tropic Air takes you to Ambergris Cay.

Local Language
English is the official language and is widely spoken, as is Spanish. Other languages include Creole, German, Mayan and Garifuna.

Climate
Belize's climate is temperate and marked by two distinct seasons, the rainy and dry . Most of the year's rainfall occurs during the period June to November, that is, the rainy season.  The mean temperature varies from 81°F/ 27°C along the coast to 69°F/21°C in the hills. The coldest month is January while the highest temperatures are experienced during the month of May.

Yacht Charter Belize Tax
A tax of $15.00 US is charged when leaving Belize ; this must be paid in cash or travellers' checks (credit cards not accepted for departure tax.)

Visas/Passports for Belize:
A passport and return ticket is required to enter Belize . No visas are required for citizens of the U.S. , British Commonwealth nations or European Union countries .

Currency
The unit of currency is the Belize Dollar (BZD), which is fixed against the US$ as BZ$2 = US$1. Most tourist resorts, hotels, restaurants and tour operators accept US currency and travellers cheques. Major credit cards may be accepted in hotels, restaurants and some shops.

Bareboat Exp. Level
From 1 - easy to 5 - very experienced = 5. Again, bareboating outside the reef is not allowed
