We offer a legendary three day sailing trip from Caye Caulker to Placencia - an adventure that will give you memories to last a lifetime! We also sail to Hol Chan and Turneffe Atoll for snorkel day trips. Come see the unspoiled jewel of the Carribean, stay on deserted islands and snorkel the pristine barrier reef.

If you were to pick one activity in Caye Caulker (or maybe all of Belize), it would be this 3-day sail to Placencia on Raggamuffin's newly restored 38 ft catamaran. Captains Kevin and Ish, along with Charles the chef, deftly and enthusiastically took care of the international mixture of 18 passengers, providing outstanding food and drink, music, instruction, and fun. Island tent camping was a new experience for us -- be sure to bring a flashlight! Snorkeling is excellent, and the crew had very good eyes for picking out the more unusual and rare animals. The only thing missing from the stay the first night on Goff Caye was Captain Jack Sparrow; on Tobacco Caye the second night there is a staffed research station for the more technically inclined. Our 3-day sail in late August appeared to primarily attract adventurous ~30 year old travelers, and would be suitable for anyone of any age who is willing to give up Facebook for 3 days. Bring spare batteries for you camera and lots and lots of sunscreen!

We went on the 3day-2night tour with Raggamuffin - Had a great time, saw a Manatee while snorkeling, nurse shark, eagle rays and turtles. We had fantastic food - even got a lobster each one night which was amazing. The staff was great fun, Dice and Jacob were really entertaining and Captain Kevin was the best - super professional and really informative, while heaps of fun and down for some good chats about the environment, sea life and life in general. We had a great time, lots of rum, lots of great people and the most amazing scenery - Note for those about to go, the tents get really hot at night, even if you try place it for shade and breeze, leave the fly open and just zip up the inner.

I have gone on this tour three time and every time i go I am never disappointed. The crew is alway jovial and fun. The snorkeling is amazing and the guides are filled with information about any questions you can come up with.
The ride there and back are just as fun as the snorkeling and the punch and snacks make it a satisfying end to your day.

We went on the 3 day tour on the 7th of August. We were very lucky with the weather but there was no wind so not much sailing. Nothing the crew can do about the weather though. The scenery was beautiful along the way. We saw dolphins, coral, went spear fishing and caught the dinner. Staying on the tiny island the first night under a starry sky was beautiful and camping on Tobacco Caye the next night was good too. Lots of rum punch, snacks and reggae on offer as well as very knowledgable crew who respect the environment. There were 10 of us on the boat with two crew and it was fantastic though seemed pricey but worth it.

We went on Raggamuffin's whole day snorkelling trip from Caye Caulker. Despite the wind and rain (unavoidable during rainy season in the Carribbean), the staff did their best to make sure our group had a great time.

We had three stops in total, the highlight for me being Shark Ray Alley where we were able to swim with nurse sharks and sting rays which was incredible experience. The crew ensured that we were given a full safety briefing with extra instruction (and buoyancy vests) for those who had not been snorkelling before or were less confident in the water.

We had an underwater camera between us which was a real bonus as we did not have to rent one on the day. You can also bring your own snorkelling gear if preferred.

The day trip included lunch and a snack as well as fruit and soft drinks. On the way back to Caye Caulker we also had rum punch. This was the perfect way to end the trip, particularly as a group of female friends, as there was definitely a party atmosphere on the way back to shore. Although we did have to sit in the wind and rain whilst travelling between stops, the hospitality of the staff made the overall experience very enjoyable.
