This cruise has two different one-way itineraries, both aiming to let you discover the treasures of this wonderful coral reef and its atolls.
The reference airport is Belize City Airport (BZE). From there, a very short internal flight will take you to San Pedro, on the island of Ambergris Caye. Disembarkation will take place in Belize City, a few minutes away from the international airport by taxi.
The crew will wait for you on the departure day in San Pedro, on the island of Ambergris Caye.
REEF ITINERARY: 4 days
The first itinerary takes you on a one way tour from San Pedro to Belize City, always staying within the big coral reef and therefore in protected waters.
We will sail to a different island on each day, following the reef and at the same time exploring the little islands we meet along the way.
Disembarkation will take place in Belize City, a few minutes away from the international airport by taxi.
BLUE HOLE ITINERARY: 7 days
This itinerary, instead, is a bit less comfortable than the first one, as it takes you around the ocean for most of the time, but you will be rewarded with the discovery of the famous Blue Hole, the Half Moon Cay National Park and the wonderful seabeds of Long Cay.
Great Blue Hole is a big marine sinkhole in the atoll of Lighthouse Reef, about 30 nautical miles from Belize City. The cave is almost perfectly circular, more than 300 meters wide and 123 meters deep. Jacques-Yves Cousteau, the first who explored this area, declared the Great Blue Hole one of the ten most interesting diving sites in the world. Great Blue Hole is very interesting for scuba divers because of its almost vertical walls that, starting from 35 meters depth, are characterized by a huge number of stalactites, some of which even 12 meters long. Great Blue Hole hosts various marine species, among which the nurse shark, the blacktip shark of the reef and the giant grouper.
This route will certainly let you spend more time in the water, diving and snorkeling. Also in this case it is a one way itinerary, with departure from San Pedro and arrival in Belize City.
Possibility of customized itineraries by choosing duration and day of boarding or arrival.
