Safety in Belizean water

Hello one and all,

A group of friend and I are renting a boat from the Moorings out of Placencia in March.

We plan to be mostly cruising the southern end of the barrier reef and we've been wondering about the security situation.

I've read of a couple of attacks in the last couple of years.

Any kind of information would be appreciated, I don't want to get overly worried but would want to be prepared rather than be taken by surprise.

Would appreciate any kind of wisdom.

Many thanks

Re: Safety in Belizean water

We sailed for 6 weeks in Belize last year(2012). It was wonderful, no safety issues. Info on customs, waypoints and more at

We'll be back in Belize this year as Wahoo is in Rio Dulce while we enjoy our New Orleans life for awhile.
