Tradewinds Placencia Belize
Here is sample itinerary of what you may expect while enjoying a sailing vacation with TradeWinds in Belize. Weather or other outside factors may mean that your Captain sets an alternative course. With hundreds of cays to choose from it is rarely the same trip twice!
You are welcome to check in at the reception of TradeWinds and drop off your luggage when you arrive. Town is only a 5 minute stroll away and offers a delightful prelude to your week's cruise. Upon arrival you will be greeted by our base manager who will take you through the check in procedure. Boarding is at 5pm. Once you board the yacht you will be greeted with a refreshing welcome cocktail and introduced to your crew and fellow sailors. You will be shown to your cabin and helped to settle in. Just prior to sunset, we will cast off our mooring lines and head out into the bay of Placencia where you will enjoy a delicious dinner aboard, followed by a good night’s rest before we set sail the following morning.
Cruising Day 6
Breakfast today is followed by an early morning snorkel on a wreck outside the barrier reef. With no moorings, it’s time to once again grab your first mate “guide” and wave goodbye to the Captain as he drops you over the wreck. This artificial reef is home to thousands of fish who can hide and dart about the steel ship. With a quick wave goodbye to your new found underwater friends, who have now made this wreck their home, it’s time to raise those sails again, drop the fishing line in the water and head North West for Colson Caye. On arrival we drop the anchor in time for a last lunch on board followed by a refreshing swim. Keep an eye out for manatees as you re-enter the Placencia Cay area before heading back into Placencia and the end of the sailing part of our adventure together. However, to compensate for that, tonight we dine out at one of our favourite local restaurants.
After a tasty breakfast onboard, it is time to gather your belongings and memories. Your crew will arrange transport back to the airport before exchanging fond farewells. Those of you who are staying additional nights at Robert's Grove Hotel will have their bags taken to their room, where arrangements for some land based activities can be made; whether exploring Monkey River or visiting one of the Mayan Ruins; you will already be planning your next TradeWinds adventure...
