Day 1
Embark Belize City to Goff's Caye, Belize

Embark the ship at Cucumber Beach Marina and sail to Goff’s Caye, an island that exemplifies why postcards were invented. The two-acre island sits right on the barrier reef, enabling snorkeling straight from the shore, or simply relax in the water on the sandbar with an icy cold beer. Dolphins frequent the waters and on occasions a manatee has been spotted amongst the kaleidoscope of marine life. Look out for the graceful spotted eagle rays, there are several who come to visit the boats to check on any scraps from the catch of the day.

Man-O-War Caye

Man-O-War Caye is a designated bird sanctuary. From afar it looks like any other tiny mangrove island, but upon approach the shore is a frenzy of activity, with birds soaring in the sky above in every direction and the males strutting their stuff (or inflating their red gular pouches) for the females during breeding season. The three different types of mangrove vegetation provide a perfect sanctuary to a variety of indigenous bird species, including pelicans, brown booby birds and the magnificent frigate birds (also known as man-o-war birds).

Tobacco Caye is a five-acre, palm-fringed coral island perched on the barrier reef, which makes it a great place to snorkel or dive from the shore, plus its central location means it is within 10 minutes by boat to some of the best snorkel sites in all of Belize. There are a couple of small laid-back resorts and a tiny beach bar serving fresh coconut water and icy cold rum cocktails with hammocks to lounge in. A group of 39 local islanders call this rock their home and it’s a great place to learn about their way of remote island life.

The main street has won the Guinness World Record award for being the narrowest main street in the world, making a popular photo op!

Day 1
Embark Belize City to St. George's Caye, Belize

Embark the ship at Cucumber Beach Marina and sail to St. George’s Caye. Steeped in history, St George’s Caye was the first capital of the British settlement in Belize.

On the island there is a very special aquarium in the boathouse at the St George’s Caye Lodge. Today’s tour guide is the resort owner’s young son Karly Ricky Bischof. Karly is a budding marine biologist and if his impressive little aquarium and his knowledge of the 100-plus fish inside is any indication, he’s going to be a good one.
