Sample Itinerary: Belize
Reef and Cayes
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. (Click
- 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. (See below)
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.
