“ASA Flotilla - A Huge Success!”
Reviewed May 31, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Up front I have to say that I am a professional sailor, own a sailing school and know the difference between a quality operation and one that is not.

ASA offered this trip as a flotilla providing the ability to rent individual cabins instead of the worry of renting the entire boat. It is a huge risk to the charter company, but a great way to sample sailing for enthusiasts that can't afford an entire boat.

Our crew, Captain Jesse and gourmet cook Kainie were professional and accommodating to everyone's wishes and preferences. They were flexible in cruise destination routing and meal service. We had to beg Kainie to cut back on the proportions because everything was so delicious and we were so stuffed afterwards, trying not to waste great food!

The unpredictability of boats and the sea can be demanding and Captain Jesse had his hands full at times, but he was always willing to have guests take the helm, trim the sheets and even haul the anchor; if that's what they wanted to do. If not, others were welcome to kick back on "Island Time" and enjoy the ride!

There was something for everyone; including a variety of destinations and even an opportunity to take a run out to the Silk Islands for some fantastic diving or snorkeling.

It is very obvious that this is a quality operation that cares and strives to exceed expectations to make dreams come true for others. Belize Sailing Vacations is a bold operation with the courage and commitment to customer service and excellence in all that they do. In the sailing charter business, that's a tough challenge!

I seldom write Trip Advisor reviews, but when I do, they usually reflect the passion and excitement that I feel when I find an operation that is over the top. No one knows better than I do, what it takes to ensure success during Caribbean Charters. BSV got it right; including the weather.

From the moment I began working with their Customer Service staff, I had a positive feeling about this operation and I'm pleased to confirm that they delivered all that was promised and more. The professional follow up and tracking of our booking was on the mark. Transportation to/from the airport was on the mark. We were all taken care of at each juncture. WiFi access during the trip was appreciated and nearly constant; even in the remote island areas.

Our group of experienced sailors was a tough crowd to please and you definitely did your homework. Great job guys.

We will be back next season with more sailors.

Thanks

“Beautiful, Relaxing and a lot of fun”
Reviewed May 30, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had an amazing Captain and Chef / 1st Mate (Francesco and Michela). They made the trip even more spectacular. We were never bored. The accommodations were much nicer than I expected. The food was AMAZING, and all the sailing was spectacular. There was always something to do. Whether we paddle boarded, kayaked, snorkeled or just floated, it was such a great time. Then going to some of the Islands in the evening was even more fun.

I HIGHLY recommend doing this! It is a spectacular way to see Belize from the water.

“Almost too relaxing”
Reviewed May 28, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My first trip to Belize and my second ASA flotilla. Ellis and Christina were a wonderful team and very accommodating. I know the guys really enjoyed tweaking the sails to get the most out of the Palometa and I enjoyed the beautiful, almost-deserted cays, the clear, turquoise water and the sense of peace.

“Outstanding trip, very enjoyable”
Reviewed May 27, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Words cannot decribe it, Ellis and Christina were amazing, both were extremely friendly and cordial and worked hard to ensure we had a very enjoyable vacation. The meals provided by Christina were outstanding and of a good variety. Both ensured all our needs were met and Ellis was more than willing to get up early to sail the boat to a new location so other clients could connect up with a trip.For us it was one of our best vacations ever, we will definitely do this trip again. We highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in taking an exotic trip to Belize or any other location.

“Best sailing vacation EVER!!!!”
Reviewed May 22, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We were fortunate enough to sail with BSV for two weeks. We sailed the northern islands the first week and the southern islands the second week. We had a different crew for each trip and both were EXCELLENT in accommodating our every need. We have sailed in Tahiti and the Virgin Islands. This was by far the best!!! The yacht, a 50' Lagoon was 1st class all the way, as was the food, day trips, water toys and crews. There were 8 of us including crew and we found the yacht had plenty of room to find your own space. The sailing grounds are super comfortable, no swells really. Love that they don't nickel and dime on all the extras they provide. Crews were incredibly knowledgable of the area. We caught amazing fish and had it for dinner!!!! Felt so safe at all times. Great experience for families, girls trip, guys trip, honeymooners, reunions, etc... We are booking our next one with them NOW!!!!

“Most seamless vacation of our life.”
Reviewed May 21, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My husband and I are experienced travelers and sailors and are used to the vicissitudes of travel so we were astonished by the service we got from Belize Sailing vacations. From the moment we arrived at the airport everything went almost magically well - including the sailing, the anchoring, the food and the coordination with a great dive outfit in Placencia. Christie and Ellis our first mate and captain, were beyond incomparable in their service, flexibility and amiability. Ellis had my husband so relaxed , he failed to react in his characteristically hostile manner to a surly bartender on St George's Cay.

“Absolutely Amazing Trip!!!!”

My husband surprised me with a 4d/4n trip for my birthday. The weather was perfect, the water was beautiful and the food was incredible! Even though all the activities and places that we traveled to were amazing, I don't believe the experience would have been the same without out our crew (Matt & Danny!) If you have the pleasure to have either of them captain (or cook) you are in for a treat!!! Again thank you BSV for a birthday to remember, and thank you to our crew who made the experience all the better!
Best wishes,
Katie & Thomas
