Catamaran charter in Belize

An Adventurer’s Paradise

Belize packs a lot of activities for such a small island. Choosing to charter a catamaran here opens a world of adventurous activities both on and offshore. Here are a few of the highlights that any sailor in Belize should aim to do:

Scuba Diving in the Great Blue Hole

Belize is home to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Great Blue Hole – literally a cascading crevice in the middle of the sea. Whilst not recommended unless you have previous diving experience, it is certainly something truly unique and memorable in the area. For those who wish to avoid travelling deep into the ocean’s floor, the view of the Great Blue Hole from your catamaran is still breathtaking and is sure to be one of the highlights of your trip to Belize.

A Caving Expedition

Unfortunately your chartered catamaran will not be able to make the journey into the world’s most sacred cave system, but this is one of the most interesting things to do in Belize. An intricately carved underground landscape awaits in this guided tour. With groups being capped at eight, you can benefit from the intimacy that makes the cave tour so enjoyable. This is certainly an intense traverse through Belize’s diverse and impressive landscapes but is certainly the most effective way to explore some of nature’s most stunning playgrounds.

Descend the Rapid Waterfalls

Some of Belize’s waterways feature impressive cascading waterfalls which can be traversed with the help of expert guides. Why not test your bravery with a water rappelling tour, featuring an exhilarating 500-feet descent amid gushing fresh water? When you have finished this daredevil stunt, you will be appreciative of the tranquility of your chartered catamaran even more. Belize has many activities for those looking to get their adrenaline pumping.

Kick Back and Relax

Of course, not everything has to be heart-pounding and adrenaline-pumping. Catamaran charter holidays in Belize are also ideal for anyone looking to escape to serenity, tranquility, and peaceful landscapes.

Sail the Cayes of Belize

Pronounced Keys , Belize is home to some of the most exquisite coastline scenery easily accessible with your chartered catamaran. Immerse yourself in snorkeling activities in South Water Caye or relax on the white sandy beaches of Cocoa Plum Caye. If you want to see an unspoiled village of Belize, Placencia Harbour is the ideal place to visit, providing ample sunbathing spots where you can top up your tan.

Sample the Flavours of Belize

Sailing in Belize opens your eyes to the global influence on the small Caribbean region. Dock your catamaran in one of the Cayes and try some scrumptious food overlooking the scenic ocean view. Salbutes are the perfect light snack of corn tortillas with delicious toppings, whilst the traditional preparation of Conchita Pibil (slow roasted pork and fresh vegetables) is the perfect way to satisfy any appetite. Why not wash back the food with some rum or beer on the gorgeous coastline of Belize?

When is the best time to visit Belize?

Belize is fortunate enough to benefit from year-round sunshine, making it a popular destination for all months of the year. However, like most islands in the Caribbean, storms can occur most frequently in the mid to late summer months. In fact, certain establishments may even close in off season, so to make the most of your catamaran charter holiday it is recommended to sail between December and March. Sailing is a popular activity in Belize thanks to the reliable trade winds prevailing from the east and averaging at 15 to 20 knots. Those looking for gentler sailing conditions have the option of staying in some of the more sheltered coves.

How to get to Belize

Belize is accessible from most major American airports with a variety of American airlines operating the major routes from cities such as Miami, Texas and California. The main airport of Belize which services these routes is Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport. European flights operate typically with a stopover in Miami or other major American airports. To reach your chartered catamaran, you are spoiled for choice thanks to bus routes, taxis, airport transfers or even a kayak route if you are feeling adventurous!
