“Best Vacation Ever”
Reviewed June 9, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

There is not enough space on a TripAdvisor review to properly articulate the experience we had with Chef Michela's and Captain Francesco on the vessel Doris. Francesco is a master sailor that a power boater can respect. We enjoyed his knowledge of the region to transport us to the many breath taking destinations off the coast of Belize. Along with Chef Michela’s culinary and presentation skills, she has mastered her craft into a true a work of art. You feel a little guilt eating the master pieces she serves you for every meal. There was nothing that was not provided for us on this trip. Wendy and I couldn’t ask for a better crew to explore the beautiful islands and reefs of the coast of Belize. Chef Michela's and Captain Francesco service was above and beyond my expectations. This was truly the best vacation of our lives. Pictures might be the only way to truly capture the once in a lifetime experiences we were provided by Belize Sailing Vacations. Enjoy!

“Good Stuff!!!!”
Reviewed June 1, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My husband and I just returned from a trip aboard the Aubisque with captain Matt and first mate, Clodia. Another couple joined us for a six night sail, while Glynn and I got our 101/103 sailing certification with captain Matt. We had an incredible time of learning, relaxing, sailing, snorkeling, and enjoying the culinary delights that Clodia brought up from the galley. This was the first charter for both us and our friends, and it was truly a pleasure. It was amazingly easy with first, Mandy, and then Marissa, giving us tips for packing and traveling. Captain Matt entertained us frequently with stories of his own sailing adventures and his life abroad, which has been quite different from ours here on our farm. He organized and arranged for guides to take us snorkeling and even found a monohull for us to practice our new skills of sailing, a wooden Belizean built guide vessel. Kuddos on the Ragagal! What an experience! Clodia was a warm and gracious hostess, meeting even our early morning coffee desires since I couldn't sleep after dawn awakened each day. Each of our snorkeling guides was also very pleasurable and accomodating. We swam with rays, nurse sharks, a sea turtle, and snorkeled in at least seven locations along Belize's barrier reef. The meals we ate on shore in Key Caulker and San Pedro were wonderful. The only things we might have missed out on were the lobsters as we missed the season! We would definitely make this trip again and just plan to stay longer!

“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!!!!
