Sample Itinerary: Belize
and Lighthouse Reef
There are multiple itinerary options for charters commencing from The
Placencia Resort and Marina in Belize. Dreaming On has prepared two
sample itineraries for our purusal.
- The Atoll itinerary heads
north to one of the channels through the barrier reef, to take us to
Turneffe Atoll and Lighthouse Reef. (See Below)
- The Inner Barrier Reef and Cayes
itinerary takes us in a circle through the inner deep water
channels, amongst the cays with some anchorages just inside the barrier
reef as well as some sailing along the barrier reef. The Belize Barrier
Reef and the many cays inside and atolls outside are famous for their
fantastic diving opportunities. (Click

All of Dreaming On’s itineraries include great diving opportunities. We
can arrange Rendezvous Diving on request with local, professional dive
organisations for any divers on board. Diving with a local dive
organization, whose Dive Masters dive these waters every day, ensures
that our guests enjoy the best possible diving experience.

Day 1Depart The Placencia Resort & Marina sailing North up
the inner channel to Blue Ground Range. Then work our way east through
patch reefs to anchor for the night just inside the barrier reef at
South Water Cay. Great snorkeling and rendezvous diving opportunities
here as well as just north at Tobacco Cay and near Carrie Bow Cay. This
is all part of the Belize Marine Reserve. There are three restaurants on
the cay. Guides can also be arranged for flats fishing.
Day 2Through the South Water Cut and set sail to Turneffe
Atoll. There is good snorkeling here and exploring the waterways
throughout Turneffe with a dinghy or kayak is very interesting.
Days 3 to 6We continue on to Lighthouse Reef and drop anchor
on the west side of Long Cay. Arriving at Lighthouse Reef early in the
week will allow us to spend up to 3 days at this amazing atoll. Take
advantage of the fabulous rendezvous diving opportunities along the
Lighthouse Wall. Advance divers can arrange to dive the Blue Hole.
Another option is to take a shore excursion to Halfmoon Cay to see the
Bird Sanctuary. The wall at Halfmoon Cay also offers beautiful diving.
Day 7A downwind sail from Lighthouse to the Barrier Reef. Anchor just inside the reef at Tobacco Cay.
Day 8Our final morning will be a sail back to The Placencia Marina.
