Had the greatest time with Captain Rory and Gary on the Seadale. They took care of our every need and even thought of things we never would have. After out time with them we felt like family. Rory planned a trip that allowed us to see all of Belize and things we never would have imagined experiencing on the islands. We snorkled on the reef, sat on beaches, ate 5 star home cooked meals, and even celebrated our anniversary with a bottle of bubbly. Not only would I suggest it, we are trying to figure out when we can come back.
Setting up the reservation with Mandy was a breeze and she was able to recommend things for us that made the experince even better. If you can ask for Captain Rory and Gary as first mate, they were a joy to hang out with! Kickoff your shoes and get ready to enjoy!

We were excited to spend a week aboard the Sea Dale with captain Rory and chef Carrie, while Dan successfully took his ASA certification. The cabins were comfortable and spacious, the meals were delicious and Carrie took care of the special needs of one of our guests who was quite ill. Rory, you are a professional! Competent, patient, a skilled sailor and a delightful person , thank you for your guidance and for passing on your knowledge. We had a wonderful vacation and have memories that will last a lifetime.
Our sailing vacation in Belize was a truly extraordinary experience, from the first enthusiastic greeting from Skipper Rufus to the last sublime meal from Chef Kate. We got it all - snorkeling, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, bird and wildlife sightings, exhilarating sailing to magnificent cayes - with such attentive service and care from Rufus and Kate that we were loathe to disembark at the end of the journey.
We cannot come close to describing the absolute joy of our experience during the sail - all we can say is that it was a little slice of heaven which we hope to repeat.
Six of us had the most fabulous time on the Calypso! Jason and Gary were great and willing to do anything to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Gary cooked us wonderful meals- how he does that in a galley kitchen is beyond me! We saw lots of dolphins, which is always a highlight for our group. Jason took us by kayak to explore Caye Caulker and we also got to snorkel with the rays and nurse sharks at Shark Ray Alley- always fun! Evenings were great- sitting under the stars and enjoying a cocktail or two, so very relaxing. Would definitely like to do this again- we were so spoiled!

Belize Sailing Vacations was fantastic ! My husband and I, sister and brother-in-law took our 6 adult children( all in their 20's) for a weeks vacation on the Doris and Sea Dale. We had extremely high expectations for this trip and we unanimously felt it far surpassed our expectations.
The Doris was Captained by Andy with Cory as First Mate. Andy put a wonderful sailing itinerary together to accommodate not only the standard snorkeling etc. activities, but to facilitate a marriage proposal on a private Island and Christmas Mass in San Pedro. He was extremely knowledgable about the wildlife and a pleasure to be around. Cory was a terrific chef and went over and above by inviting us to her home and cooking a delicious beach barbecue for us Christmas Day. She somehow was able to arrange golf carts to rent when no one seemed to have any available .
Rufus was the Captain of the Sea Dale and his wife Kate was the First Mate. Four of " the kids" stayed on their boat. Rufus taught them how to sail and operate the boat . They all agreed that Kate was a great chef. Rufus, Kate, and Cory went to some of the " hot spots" with us/ the kids and made sure everyone got home safely! They were also lots of fun to be around. The crew was very flexible with all of the shenanigans that took place throughout the week. They seemed to know just what we needed at any given moment.
Although you could at times get Internet etc., I can't tell you how fantastic it was for everyone to disconnect from social media and enjoy each others company and the spectacular beauty that surrounded us. Belize Sailing Vacations is top notch.
