Belize: Northern Itinerary with Dropoff in San Pedro

4-Night Sample Itinerary

MAP of Belize

Still relatively undiscovered as a sailing destination, anchorages are so quiet you may only see a handful of boats in a more popular location and there are myriad islands to explore. The trade winds typically blow in from the east, ensuring the ultimate conditions for sailing north or south.

Below are highlights of a sample northern itinerary:

Day 1: Drowned Cayes

The Drowned Cayes consist of mangrove channels and islands that are the breeding grounds to the aquatic marine life of Belize. Pods of dolphins and manatees reside here, along with vast birdlife including herons, egrets, the occasional spoonbill, pelicans, frigates, cormorants, and many more. Due to our sheltered anchorage and the many channels and inlets, this is a perfect location to venture out kayaking or paddle boarding, getting very up close and personal with nature's goings on. The vibrant contracts of green mangroves to azure waters make the sunset all the more breathtaking.

Day 2: Goff's Caye & Bannister

Sail to Goff’s Caye – one of our favourite islands because it reminds us why postcards were invented. This 2-acre island sits right on the barrier reef so you can snorkel straight from the shore, or simply relax in the water on the sandbar with an icy cold Belikin beer. Sail up to Bannister Bogue, a mangrove collection of islands that are home to manatees, dolphins, multiple bird species and other marine life. Manatees, which are also known as "sea cows" are gentle, slow moving, plant-eating herbivores and their closest living relatives are elephants and aardvarks. They can grow over 13 feet in length and weigh up to 3,500 pounds. Despite being an endangered species, manatees are present in the waters of Belize and can be seen throughout the year. (Please note it is not possible to swim with theManatees and seeing them is not guaranteed).

Day 3: Gallow's Reef & St. George's Caye

Sail to St George’s Caye, steeped in history it was the first capital of the British settlement in Belize. The island is principally home to private families, however it is possible to use this as a base for some great snorkeling or scuba diving, or walking the sandy shores. Before anchorage enjoy a snorkel along Gallow's Reef, or try your hand at some spear fishing for lobster or snapper with your captain and guide.

Day 4: Caye Caulker

Sail to the sleepy island of Caye Caulker, fish along the way and enjoy a swim on arrival. "No shirt,no shoes, no problem" is the motto of this island and typifies the vibe. The white sandy beaches, ocean breezes, fresh seafood, azure waters, and a fantastic barrier reef on its doorstep make it a perfect place to relax and unwind.

Day 5: Drop off in San Pedro

Enjoy a leisurely back to Ambergris Caye where you will be dropped off at the Amigos del MarDock. Ambergris Caye is the most northerly Caye in Belize and touches the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. Lying only a quarter of a mile from the barrier reef, it’s one of the best locations in the world for scuba diving, snorkeling and sports fishing. The main town of San Pedro has the broadest range of tourist amenities in Belize, including art and craft shops, boutique hotels, fine dining establishments, and plenty of fun local eateries to explore.
