Re: Belize Cruising

Whew...could you narrow it down a bit?

The barrier reef is ~130 miles long, if you take the rough linear distance of the 3 atolls thats another ~130 miles of reef (not including the thousands of corals heads and patch reefs inside the atolls), and to that all the inumerable reefs and coral heads inside main barrier reef...thats a lotta reef, with thousands of good snorkel/dive spots.

Are there specific areas in Belize that interest you?

Re: Belize Cruising

FWIW We are currently in US with boat in Roberts Grove Marina near Placencia. It looks like there are as many as 3 different charter operations in the same little basin. Sunsail is one I remember. You could call that Marina - they are very helpful. and they might tell you more. Looks like Moorings is next door.

Advantage of chartering out of B City is no need for expensive connecting flight or 4 hour hot bus ride down to Placencia. But if you do bus, they can drop you off right at Roberts Grove./ Moorings. And you see the country as well.

So..., the other post is correct. There are only 2 charter companies (worth considering), Sunsail and The Moorings.

Much depends on the base manager. Ive no experience with their base in Placencia, but I have delivered a boat purchased out of charter from their Martinique base and I was impressed with their maintenance. The boat was in very good condition and their maintenance manager was really on top of things.
