"We stumbled across this ad for a luxury yacht when searching for a place to stay in Belize. After reading about the amazing amenities included, we couldn't help but inquire to learn more, just to cure our curiosity. Never having considered sailing or chartering, combined with the avg. nightly rate being much higher than our budget, we were just "playing around" with the inquiry. It was Mandy who clearly defined the ALL INCLUSIVE vacation, set the tone for the customization that this trip allowed and made suggestions that turned our inquisitive connection into a booking. Because of Mandy's expertise, detail and recommendations, we learned that luxury yacht chartering is not just for the rich and famous! This trip was a truly customized vacation, absolutely affordable considering the amenities, food and excursions and held MORE comfort and luxuries than any hotel I’ve stayed in while traveling the world.
Our Captain, Jason, and First Mate/Chef, Kainie, got to know us immediately upon arrival. They asked just a few questions, and created comfort and laughter from minute one. What we didn't know at the time: they were learning all they could about us ensure they would be able to put together a successful and customized itinerary, menu, sailing path and excursions before our boat left the dock. They served us with perfection to the point that we didn't even realize we were being served!
From kayaking with manatees and dolphins, docking in mangroves, swimming in beautiful private white beaches to fishing really large catch, our visits to so many private islands and our 1:1 guided snorkeling tours filled 4 days with 10 days’ worth of activities!!!! We got a taste of life on a beautiful Caye, socializing with locals, and spent many moments on numerous secluded islands, with no sign of humanity anywhere. Last minute dingy rides with the Captain allowed us to search and explore… we got to see things nobody has ever seen before! The knowledge, personal connections along the Cayes and experience brought with the combination of our Captain and First Mate/Chef allowed us to comfortably, safely and excitedly see many parts of Belize that are seen by few.
The meals were fresh, EXQUISITE and beautifully prepared (as well as abundant in supply!!) Dining was an experience in itself like no other. Beverages and Belizean specialties accompanied every single meal, sail and social time!
We left Belize this week, very sad as we feel we have left lifelong friends beh"
