The 40 foot Sirena Azul(Blue Mermaid) is made out of hardwoods found in Belize, including Santa Maria, Bullet and Mahogany.The owners of Blue Tang Inn wanted a traditional sailboat that modeled the typical fishing boats in Belize.

They hired local boat builders in a small Belize village to build this elegant yet traditional sailboat. Hop aboard for a fun filled day snorkeling the barrier reef and enjoying breathtaking sunsets in the tropics.

If you go to Ambergris Caye, sailing to and snorkeling in Shark Ray Alley and Hol Chan Marine Reserve is a must! Our guides, Rowan and Carlos, were amazing! We sailed out to SRA first, where we got to swim with stingrays, eagle rays, nurse sharks, blue tang, and more! At Hol Chan Marine Reserve, Rowan led us on a... More

My two friends and I enjoyed a wonderful sailing and snorkeling experience on the Sirena Azul. This old school sailing vessel was built in Belize. It was roomy and comfortable and absolutely magnificent when under full sail. Our captain and guide Roan was very capable and knowledgeable. He accompanied us in the water and pointed out many different fish while... More

We did a sunset cruise for two. We brought a nice bottle of wine and a couple glasses and enjoyed a few hours sailing to Hoi Chan marine park and back. Chatting with the crew, a couple of unique Belizean characters, was the highlight of the trip. Would love to do it again.

A group of 7 of us chartered the Sirena Azul for a day trip that included 3 snorkel stops, rum and cokes, and ceviche - a day well spent! Do note that you're likely to use the engine in addition to the sails for at least part of the trip.

The sailboat ride was phenomenal! It allowed us to lay out & sun while on our way to shark alley & Hol Chan. The guides were great, courteous, and very knowledgeable. They helped make the most of our time & experience out in the water.

We were fortunate to book this sailboat for a sunset sail. As it turned out, there were only two of us on the ship. But the crew made a wonderful adventure. With little wind, the crew was sill able to set sail and went to the end of the island so we could view a spectacular sunset. Carlos and Edwin... More

We experienced good pre-trip communication, although we initiated most of it. We had booked the trip via Viatar six weeks in advance and had an email exchange to confirm the booking was good. As we left for Belize, I checked in with Germain to see how things were going. I shared again that the only reason we were coming to... More

On our return Edwin and Nelson took us to a local store to buy veg and lobster which they then barbecued for us. An... More

Edwin and Arnold are wonderful tour guides. Made us feel safe and customized the snorkeling for swim ability and comfort level. My goggles were giving me trouble Arnold noticed and gave me his so I could enjoy the experience. They invited us to help bring up the sails before departure which was pretty cool to participate especially since I've never... More
