Belizean Reef: Sailing the Caribbean Sea

Bandannas at the ready? Hand over your flip flops and hop aboard the Raggamuffin sailboat. Prepare for 3 days of the pirate life – spear fishing for your dinner, sleeping on desert islands, and drinking unlimited rum. Sound good? It’s even better when you’re living it.

It’s time to embark on the adventure of a lifetime as you set sail from the shores of Caye Caulker, Belize, and head out into the Caribbean Sea. Bask in the sun from the hammock at the front of the boat, and enjoy the refreshing sea spray that’ll cool you down and remind you that you’re not dreaming.

You’re part of the crew now, and every vessel needs some man power to keep it sailing in the right direction. Try pulling up the sails or fishing from the back of the boat. As the crew will tell you from the beginning – the more you put into this, the more you’ll get out of it.

Stop a few times each day to jump in the big blue and snorkel the vibrant shallow reefs. The crew will even guide you in the right direction and point out some cool sea life along the way, from colourful corals to playful manatees. Try your hand at spearfishing, because where else can you have a go? Catch something for dinner, or do your bit to keep the overpopulation of lion fish in check.

As the sun sinks into the sky and the rum punch starts flowing, your paradise island Rendezvouz Caye awaits. Pitch a tent with an ocean view, and talk all things travel and beyond over an incredible buffet style dinner. The catches of the day are cooked to perfection by the on board chef, and carefully paired with delectable sides.

Who knows where the night will go from there. With rum punch still flowing and the energy of the ocean surrounding you, don’t be surprised if you end up dancing in the moonlight before falling asleep under a sky full of stars.

Wake up the next day and hit the hangover cure breakfast before setting sail for another day of snorkeling and adventures. Crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches are on today’s agenda, all leading up to the island that you will call home for the night.

Ragga Caye really is special. Tonight you can opt for a bed in a newly built beach hut, or even a private over-water cabana. Given how perfect the nights are here, it was hard to turn down another opportunity to spend it under the stars, so camping won our vote. With hammocks in the trees and kayaks to take out around the caye, the afternoon will fly by. Of course, the rum punch has been flowing again, so spirits are high (literally), and the group games have begun.
