ITINERARY OVERVIEW
Day 1
Goff’s Caye

One of our favorite islands because it reminds us why postcards were invented. This 2 acre island sits right on the barrier reef so you can snorkel straight from the shore, or simply relax in the water on the sandbar with an icy cold Belikin beer.

Day 2
Swallow Caye

Swallow Caye has been declared a wildlife sanctuary to protect the manatees and other marine life that call it home. Manatees, which are also known as ‘sea cows’ are gentle, slow moving, plant-eating herbivores and their closest living relatives are elephants and aardvarks. They can grow over 13 feet in length and weigh up to 3,500 pounds. Despite being an endangered species, manatees are present in the waters of Belize and can be seen throughout the year. (Please note it is not possible to swim with the Manatees, however we have often spotted them while snorkelling).

Day 3
St George's Caye

Steeped in history, St George’s Caye was the first capital of the British settlement in Belize. The island is principally home to private families, however it is possible to use this as a base for some great snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing.

Day 4
Caye Caulker

Sail to the sleepy island of Caye Caulker, fish along the way and enjoy a swim on arrival. ‘No shirt, no shoes, no problem’ is the motto of this island and typifies the vibe. The white sandy beaches, ocean breezes, fresh seafood, azure waters and a fantastic barrier reef on its doorstep make it a perfect place to relax and unwind. A trip to Caye Caulker is not complete without a late afternoon Belikin beer or a rum punch at the Lazy Lizard bar at ‘The Cut’ – a lively swimming area, which separates the two islands of Caye Caulker.

Day 5
Hol Chan Marine Reserve & Shark Ray Alley

Enjoy a morning of snorkeling at Hol Chan Marine Reserve, swimming amongst beautiful shoals of tropical fish, turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, moray eels and grouper. Return to the boat and re-charge the batteries over a tropical lunch with the reef only meters from your anchorage. Follow this with a dip at Shark Ray Alley, a site where local fishermen used to clean their catch, which attracts more carnivorous species such as big southern stingrays and nurse sharks.

Day 6
Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye is the most northerly Caye in Belize and touches the Yucatan peninsular of Mexico. Lying only a quarter of a mile from the barrier reef, it’s one of the best locations in the world for scuba diving, snorkeling and sports fishing. The main town San Pedro has the broadest range of tourist amenities in Belize, including art and craft shops, boutique hotels, fine dining establishments and plenty of fun local eateries and establishments.

TESTIMONIALS
What an amazing week! My friend and I traveled down to Belize for an intensive week of ASA sailing courses. If you want to relax while learning how to sail (or just relax) BSV is the right choice for your trip!
Mark S.
We had the absolute best time with Belize sailing vacations. The views, the cayes, everything was perfect. We took our ASA 104 and 114 on our trip (which is a lot of work), but they made it fun.
