“Escape to Paradise”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Wow, what can I say?
I had a truly amazing time on the Aubisque, sailing softly and swiftly through the turquoise and navy waves, exploring the magical underworld - it is seriously beautiful snorkelling around there, sharing a punchy island cocktail on a deserted paradise island, eating mouthwatering and lovingly prepared food morning, noon and night, relaxing on the trampoline while our adventure unfolded, with dolphins welcoming us into every harbour, manatees putting on a delightful show on our last morning, a giant sea turtle under the boat, fascinating squid and curious barracuda, bright red starfish as we kayaked into the mangroves....

I have to thank our crew, Captain Ellis and First-mate Christy (and Ellen for the last days), who truly created such a wonderful experience for us. Our captain has to be one of the best in the area, he knows his way round every reef and island without hesitation (or GPS!) and guided our journey smoothly and seamlessly with his kind, warm, strong and calm presence allowing us all to truly relax. Meanwhile Christy cooks melt-in-the-mouth food and organises everything beautifully, including lovely small touches, with a cheerful smile and a real desire to look after us. Even with a kidney stone she was still cooking us lunch! Ellen seemlessly stepped in for the last days, with more tasty food and wonderful care, so we literally never had to lift a finger! Nothing is too much trouble for these guys and they thought of every little detail in order to ensure we had the best time possible, setting us up to sail, fish, snorkel, kayak - or drink cocktails! - in all the best spots. They truly love what they do and welcomed us so well - it was really special.

In summary, it truly was an escape to paradise, a trip filled with beauty, peace and joy. I cannot recommend this vacation - or this crew - highly enough. Thank you so much and see you next time...!

“Amazing trip”
Reviewed 29 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Perfect getaway! With 3 kids from elementary to high school my wife and I decided it was past time for an anniversary trip for just the two of us. We both love tropical waters, snorkeling and have an interest in sailing so we started looking for a location and company that would be a fit. We have spent time in the Bahamas and enjoyed it so we thought we would venture out to a different Caribbean destination.
Belize was amazing, the people always friendly and the coral reef was beyond our expectations. The best snorkeling we have ever experienced. I also completed the first two ASA courses on this trip and that alone was a highlight. Captain Matt was an exceptional instructor and highly informative, not to mention just a great guy to be around and to snorkel with. Chef Clodia kept us over indulged with some of the best carribean dishes one could ask for. Both Matt and Clodia took the best care of us and made it a truly relaxing trip. I would highly recommend Belize Sailing Vacations and look forward to coming back again!

“The World Stopped - Suspended in Time”
Reviewed 21 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Our trip on one of the beautiful sailing catamarans was wonderful. We had excellent weather, snorkeling, and wind!
Ellis our captain as an expert, intuitive sailor, let us help if we wanted to but, otherwise things just happened, it all seemed so effortless to him, with grace and instinct only an experienced sailor can provide.
Christy our chef was amazing, cooking up the fish we caught, meals where interesting and always delicious. It is great to just hear the bell ring and have food to eat, no decisions to make. I'd like one of her 'Pain-killers' drinks right about now! (Ellis' sister, Ellen, cooked for us the last few days, she was amazing too!)
We visited unique places, secluded islands, secret reefs and swam in crystal clear waters teaming with life.
Thank you for creating this special experience where the world can stop for a while-we just sail along. After our 9 day trip, we pulled into the marina and set foot back to civilization, things felt a bit different, more at ease and brighter.

“The perfect getaway”
Reviewed 14 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Wow! What an amazing vacation!! This was our second trip to Belize but first trip with Belize Sailing Vacations and we were completely blown away in every aspect of the trip. Our crew, Jesse and Kanie, were superb and took amazing care of us. The food was spectacular and every need and request was granted. There is not a better way to visit Belize and we are already planning our return! I highly recommend this vacation and most importantly Jesse and Kanie are a must have to make it complete!

“The most amazing trip ever”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

people found this review helpful

I can't say it enough.. The trip with Belize sailing vacations was just amazing.. I also doing it again. Our 4 day trip with captain Matt and first mate Danny was again just amazing.. I've traveled a lot, but this was my first ever trip on a chartered catamaran, Palometa. Matt and Danny made the trip so just more memorable, their cooking absolutely amazing, Danny's fresh catch of the day, always a hit. Their knowledge of the area made is just so much better. Matts stories from around the world, so entertaining. Got to swim with the nurse sharks, sting rays and a sea turtle. The snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding was icing on the cake. This was also during my birthday, the big 40, and I couldn't have asked for more, the best way ever to celebrate.
As I said, I'm so coming back. The 4 day trip was just great, but might need to consider 7 days next time :-)
Loved the small islands we visited, also San Pedro on Ambergris Caye, fun town. Our two nights on Caye Caulker, just perfect. BSV was so helpful with all the arrangements, hotel recommendations, transfers and all..
I'll be back

“Most beautiful and relaxing vacation ever!”
Reviewed 11 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is our second sailing trip with BSV and this one was even more fabulous than the last. Our 2 college age children came with my husband and me . Our Captain Jesse and Chef Kainie were great! My husband and son both got their sailing certification completed on this trip as well. We went to the most beautiful picturesque islands with hardly anyone there. The snorkeling was great. We had success catching some yummy fish.Kaine cooked us awesome meals and Jesse worked hard enabling us to relax and enjoy a wonderful vacation. BSV think of everything and make it so easy to just show up and relax. We highly recommend this company

“Best Vacation Ever”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

There is not enough space on a TripAdvisor review to properly articulate the experience we had with Chef Michela's and Captain Francesco on the vessel Doris. Francesco is a master sailor that a power boater can respect. We enjoyed his knowledge of the region to transport us to the many breath taking destinations off the coast of Belize. Along with Chef Michela’s culinary and presentation skills, she has mastered her craft into a true a work of art. You feel a little guilt eating the master pieces she serves you for every meal. There was nothing that was not provided for us on this trip. Wendy and I couldn’t ask for a better crew to explore the beautiful islands and reefs of the coast of Belize. Chef Michela's and Captain Francesco service was above and beyond my expectations. This was truly the best vacation of our lives. Pictures might be the only way to truly capture the once in a lifetime experiences we were provided by Belize Sailing Vacations. Enjoy!
