It’s the water – and in Belize, it’s definitely the water and the world’s second largest barrier reef that makes this destination special. Lots of options here – it does depend on what sort of experience you’re looking for and the make up of your group or family.
To begin, there is what many believe to be the top saltwater adventure anywhere – the Belize Mothership Trip. Staffed by Captain Dean Myers and his able crew, you and your group of 2, 3, 4, or 6 live on the shallow waters inside the reef on your own personal floating lodge – i.e., a comfortable, air conditioned, live-aboard yacht.
Behind the mothership are towed your flats skiffs from which you will pursue tarpon, bonefish, snook, barracuda, and can access the world’s finest permit flats.
There are a variety of coastal options in Belize. For a top-of-the-line couple’s island get-away, there is Cayo Espanto.
Ambergris Caye, as well as some of the other cayes, offer different forms of island family getaways.
The eastern edge of the Turneffe Islands is one of the most beautiful spots in the world. Both Turneffe Island Lodge and Turneffe Flats Lodge provide slightly different experiences.
Your mothership, the Rising Tide, comes with an experienced captain (who doubles as the head guide) and the steward/cook who basically spends the day doing the housekeeping and preparing meals to meet the fishing schedule.
Since there is no one else on board but the people you bring with you (and the crew), the nature of this trip is such that it is a great experience for small groups of friends and family that enjoy spending time together.
