The charter season is over in Belize and the boats are on their way to the Rio, in Guatemala, for their annual maintenance. I thought this would be the perfect time to post a selection of our favourite photos, from some of our most memorable experiences, while working for Belize Sailing Vacations.
So many great memories!
Photo Credit: some of the below photos were taken by guests, specifically Andreas and Andrea Jensen, and they have graciously allowed me to use them for this post, and include their two beautiful daughters 🙂 Thank you, Jensen family!

the view from above… the view from below… getting to know the local Nurse Sharks these guys are so beautiful and peaceful, and they love their sea grass. Rufus and I affectionately refer to them as “sea cows” 🙂 our guide, Ally, interacting with one of the rays – they know her well and greet her personally whenever she gets in the water these two photos were taken while under way, sailing to the next island – perfectly calm and clear island – perfectly calm and clear the view from our cabin port hole, while we were sailing seagull trying his luck for a seafood snack off the back of the boat fresh.live.lobster. fresh shrimps prepared the Danish way, for our Danish guests.

soon to be ceviche there was no one else on or around this island besides the two of us, our two guests and our boat anchored in the background. chasing a crab up a tree, doing his best crab claw impression a coconut is not the best hiding place, as it out… say hello!
exploring the curious and colourful town of San Pedro, on Ambergris Caye, in the north of Belize. definitely worth a visit, if only for the locally hand-made organic chocolate (!!!). sunset view from South Water Caye sunset view from South Water Caye
the Fernandez family from Uruguay you can take us out of South Africa but you can’t take us away from the braai! this is one of our favourite charter meals to prepare: chicken, sweet pepper and pineapple sosaties (kebabs) on the ideally charcoal, not gas, braai (barbecue)
