“You MUST do this if you are in Placencia!”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

A group of 4 of us were in town to dive with whale sharks. Decided that we would like to spend a day on the water relaxing and chartered a catamaran for us with Captain Rob and Nichelle. This might have been the highlight of my trip (and we saw the whale sharks!)

The Sun Seeker was a beautiful and well-maintained craft. Nichelle offered us a light breakfast as we began our cruise and it wasn't too long after that she offered to make us her wonderful bloody mary mix to pair we the vodka we brought on board (they don't mind if you bring your own cocktails for the day, but they provide soda, water and such.)

Captain Rob took us to a lovely area to snorkel and Nichelle made us a tasty lunch on the boat. I spent much of my time relaxing at the front of the boat, getting some sun and enjoying the passing views as we sailed the day away.

We ended our day with a beautiful sunset and promised to return next year - and most definately will! Thanks Rob and Nichelle!

“Outstanding crew and overall experience!”
Reviewed May 12, 2012

We just returned from Placencia and one of our best days was the one spent with Captain Rob and Nichelle. They started out as the boat crew and ended the day as our friends. Nichelle made great food and they were both a lot of fun. We "motored" out to a small island and dropped anchor there for a couple hours and then sailed back. Rob's catamaran is gorgeous, has many seating/relaxing options and is very well taken care of. Spending the day with them again is one thing that will bring me back to Placencia!

“A Christmas Day to Remember”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

My parents, sister and I headed out with Captain Rob and the crew on Christmas Day! The weather was absolutely perfect and we could not have asked for a better experience. The lunch prepared by Pam was great and the rum punch was a perfect treat on the ride back!! Snorkeling with Clint was fantastic...I just wish it had lasted longer but all good things must come to an end. I highly recommend the day sail if you want to get out on the water and have a wonderful, relaxing experience!

“Gorgeous views, amazing boat, fun company!”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

We had an amazing time with Rob and Nichelle on our sunset cruise. The views were gorgeous, especially the sunset, and it was incredibly relaxing and tranquil out on the water. The boat is well-equipped for a short or longer cruise..very clean, spacious and comfortable with lots of places to sun yourself. The snacks and drinks provided added the perfect touch to our sunset cruise. We would recommend to anyone visiting the area!

“Sunsets, sailing, dolphins, & rainbows...”
Reviewed September 28, 2011

We couldn't have asked for a more memorable sailing experience with Beize Sailing charters. With only a few days to spend in Belize , we knew we wanted to get out on the water. We went out for a sunset cruise and got the experience of a lifetime. First a pod of dolphins swam with us next to the boat. Leading us through the first part of our sail... A momma dolphin & her baby enjoyed showing us the way... It was amazing to witness and photograph. When we thought it couldn't get any better our sunset cruise was topped with a double rainbow sunset. Amazing..... Capt. Rob & his crew were great & accommodated us throughout the trip. I would recommend to anyone visiting Belize to enjoy a trip with Belize Sailing Charters. It was more than we expected & a trip I would gladly take again anytime.
