Don’t Stop Belizin’!
Ah Belize! That free-spirited little sister between Honduras and Guatemala! Located on the East coast of Central American in the Caribbean Sea. From 5 – 11 June 2022, we will explore the islands just offshore along some of the most incredible barrier reef locations in the Caribbean. Join us as we sail, snorkel and swim our way through pristine waters, white sand beaches and brilliant sea life that is Belize.
On our LTD “Living The Dream!” Sailing Flotillas, we spend a few hours each day sailing which will leave plenty of time to explore each exotic destination. You can participate as much or as little as you like. If you want to work on your ASA 111 “Sailing Review certification”, just let us know in advance.
