“rum by rum 18-20 august 2013 katamarano empress”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Decided last moment to join this tour, we had no info about and not even checked comments from other travellers.
My friend and I spent 3 super days, during which we experienced fishing from the boat, spearfishing (I got a big snapper, and that was the first time in my life), we learned a lot about the reef during snorkeling thanks to the crew explanations. We had very tasty food mainly fresh fish barracuda, snapper, grouper, lobster. Camping is camping but what an experience wake up on an remote island and go for a swim before brushing your teeth. Music was with us all these days, we could party on board dancing and sipping the famous raggamuffin rum punch. What I liked the most was the way the crew Kevin, Jacob and Dice handled everything such as boat cleaning, cooking and sharing interestin facts and information. Guys you have to try it...this tour is one of the highlight of Belize. Marcello Italy

“great fun but overcrowded both in boat and snorkelling”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

whole day snorkelling trip from caye caulker- first the negatives: -
23 people on a sailing boat in heavy cold rain and wind - there wasn't room for everyone to take shelter which was extremely unpleasant
sail boat was supposed to be a feature (of leisurely day) but they only used the motor and by the looks of the rigging the sails are purely decorative - ie you don't sail round the carribean
dead coral - most of it was dead - the first reef was moribund with just an occasional fish
shark and ray alley - great to see the nurse sharks and sting rays but didn't like the way the guides interfered with them
last reef - better selection of fish and coral and a turtle and a green moray eel but lots of boats and everyone after the same eel. we divided into three groups to spread out but everyone was in the same place at the same time including several other boat loads. Again eel tormented by guides such that it tried to escape but couldn't find suitable place to hide - not great. eventually led away to see more turtles but suprisingly ended up taken straight back to the boat without an attempt to find more turtles
we hired a waterproof camera for 60 belize$ - just seen pictures - very poor quality. all the nurse sharks are orange! wouldn't recommend.
kit past its' best - snorkel and mask ok but flippers held together with masking tape which inevitably fell off
reggae music, which is supposed to be feature of the trip, replaced by pop music for the trip back
the positives: -
guides friendly and helpful to us (although I didn't envy the wild-life. they left the turtle alone though)
good reggae on the way to the reefs
food ok
rum punch good
overall i enjoyed the day, but there are much better places in the world to snorkell - i wouldn't do it again

“Great Day of snorkeling”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

We are a couple age 65+. We went with Shane on the sailboat. There were 11 on the tour and it was a rainy day. We had a great time. Shane took very good care of us. We neglected to tell him early in the day that we needed to be back at the dock early in order to catch a water taxi back to Belize City. On the way back, he realized that we were not going to be at the dock in time, so he called a speedboat to come pick us up and take us to the taxi. We made it with 10 minutes to spare, but in the hurry, I left my shorts (had on over my bathing suit) on the sailing vessel with my room keys in the pockets. As soon as we realized the problem, we sent an email to Ragamuffin and they put my shorts on the first water taxi the next morning. Good snorkeling, good food and drink, good time with all.

“The experience of a lifetime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We did the 3 day overnight sailing trip down the coast this past week. So glad we did - we went snorkeling 6+ times, spear fishing, fishing, had incredible food, saw & stayed on remote Belizean keys, and learned a ton about Belize.

My one concern before the trip was that the food would be insufficient; it turned out to be nearly the opposite of my expectations. Each meal was well prepared, very tasty, and was plenty to satisfy my hunger. We ate fresh seafood that we caught (barracuda, snapper, etc) and our last night on top of the fish, rice, beans, vegetables, etc, we each got our own whole grilled lobster.

I think the crew makes the trip. They are so friendly and entertaining, but at the same time are organized and professional. Each of them have been with the company for 8+ years and are native Belizeans, so are highly knowledgeable about all the marine life we saw (eagle rays, turtles, dozens of types of tropical fish, eels, etc).

There were no disappointing parts of this trip. Recommended for anyone who likes water and camping.

“Above and beyond our expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

We did three days from Caye Caulker to Placenta. It was excellent. The crew were really fun, helpful, knowledgable, and most of all - focused on giving us punters the best possible experience. Everyone had a great trip! The food was awesome. Ellis is a great Chef! The fishing was fun and the snorkelling brilliant. There was no end to the food or drinks. We are in our forty's and travelled with a group of all different ages. The tour was perfect for all of us. Well done!
